Hello all, the first event of the season is fast approaching and its going to be a big event, we already have lots of entries and we will be closing the books soon, so if you are planning to enter please do so without delay (we will not accept late entries).

Please note, in order to get everyone to the correct cones width and make the marathon run smoothly we have very limited availability for competitors sharing grooms , priority will be given on a first entered first served basis, please get your own groom/backsteppers sorted! Thank you.

If you are planning to share grooms/backsteppers can you please make sure you mention this on the notes section of your entry so we can ensure we can try to accommodate your wishes.

Please Note. We cannot accept entries where one person is planning to groom/backstep for three drivers  due to the complexity of organising times etc.

We are all looking forward to seeing you at what's looking like an exciting event.

Drive safe and have fun.

Best Regards

Hi Everyone and welcome to the first email of the 2018 season, this year we are planning to send out regular emails to you to keep you informed of up and coming events, results from events as the season opens up and any other information that we feel you may benefit from.

Our first training day's are on the 12th and 13th of April at Ashfields, your trainers are Anna Grayston, Sara Howe and Minta Winn, they will be offering flat work, cones, and obviously there will also be a hazard open for training purposes should you require. Places are filling up quickly so if you wish to take advantage of this pre season opportunity then get your bookings/time slots in soon. For any newcomers requiring an assessment you can get this done at the same time. As always you can enter directly from the website

Our first event of the season is the 14th and 15th of April (immediately after the training days), its a two day event and also a National Novice Qualifier. It will be our normal format of Dressage and Cones on Saturday followed by Marathon on Sunday. Please be aware that all open singles and multiple turnouts will be required to complete the new BC Test 2 (2018) for dressage unless you request otherwise on your booking form. The Marathon will be 6 Obstacles and approximately 13km. Again, as its the first event of the year entries are coming in quickly so please don't leave it until the last minute to get your bookings in. You can book in directly on the link above.

For those of you who haven't already renewed your membership then please take this as a gentle reminder that memberships are now open and due.

We hope you will all have a successful season but most importantly drive safely and have fun.

Best Regards
East Anglian Carriage Driving Group Committee.
