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.

Caroline Douglas Training Clinics
Caroline is a Light Harness Horse Instructor (LHHI) as well as BHS Intermediate Instructor, Private Drive and Attelage de Tradition Judge. In 2017 Caroline was invited to judge at Horse of the Year show, quite an accolade. We have been holding clinics since December 2015.
Sessions are 45 minutes.
Spectators are VERY welcome; there is a lot to learn from each lesson, whether it is driven, ridden, singles, multiples, groundwork or a precautionary harness and carriage check.
Places are limited but a waiting list will be held in case of cancellations; these do happen, typically within the 10 days before the clinic so if you are available there is a good chance you will get a place.
All at Shedfield Riding School (indoors).
All £46 for SDHC members, £50 for non-members.
Thursday 28th December 2017 NEW DATE
