One day event Sunday 30th September


May I take this opportunity to remind you that our last event of this year is fast approaching.

It will be a one day-fun day event, on Sunday 30th September to be held at Ashfields Carriage Driving Centre. The format will be announced shortly but is liable to be along the lines of:

Marathon dress for the entire event.

Dressage, either your standard class test or we can offer the Indoor test for those planning to compete indoors this season, we will need to know your preference.

Marathon and cones, we will combine a cones course between 3 hazards that you will drive twice, between 4-5km, paces to be confirmed.

Entries close on 20th September, we need a minimum of 25 entries to make this work, if we do not get the numbers then we will cancel this event.

Please note....There will be NO late entries accepted, if you wish to take advantage of this extended weather then get your entries in now.

We look forward to seeing you all again soon.
