We cater for all driving interests: social drives, showing and horse driving trials. (Those new to carriage driving may find the explanations of types of events useful.) We also run training sessions and social and educational events.

- Novice or Open? We define a “SDHC Novice” in a slightly different way to the more formal criteria. Please check our guidance.
