Sandringham Horse driving Trials 2018 - club event cancelled

It is with much regret that we have to inform you that due to insufficient numbers, we have been forced to cancel the club event at Sandringham 2018.

The committee, over the last few days, have been working tirelessly together with the organisers of the National Event, looking into various options to try to make the event work, we have looked into many proposals including running alongside and immediately after the national competitors, unfortunately, insufficient entries have simply made it unviable.

Arrangements will be made over the next few days to reimburse your entry fees.

We know you will be disappointed but hope to see you at our next two day event held at Blandings Carriage Driving Centre on 14th - 15th July, entries close on the 4th July. 

Best Regards
East Anglian Carriage Driving Group Committee.

Sandringham Horse Driving Trials

Its good to see the weather has finally made a change for the better, I can't believe it's June already (where did that go?).

For those of you who haven't done already, please get your entries in for Eacdg Sandringham. This is one of the most picturesque venues we have, driving in the Royal grounds and through the Royal gardens, beautiful doesn't even come close to describing it.

Last year, entries were down and the club only just broke even, if the entries don't increase there is the risk of this event not running, if we take the decision to cancel then we will lose our venue deposit and there is the strong possibility that we may lose this venue in the future, as this is one of the most prestigious events of the year it would be such a shame not to be able to offer it as part of our yearly schedule.

There is plenty to see at this venue, there is an FEI National and Young Drivers Event, the CIAT Concours Internationale d'Attelage de Tradition will be having their Meet and Drive Saturday 1st & 2nd July, The British Coaching Club – will be having their meet and drive from the Sandringham show ground on Friday 29th June and on top of all this you have our annual 2 day club event. Where else will you be able to drive 6 of the same obstacles as the National Competitors?

All this by gracious permission of Her Majesty The Queen.

Please vote with your feet and get your entries in, it's your club, it's your money let's not lose it.

Entries close on Wed 20 Jun 2018, don't leave it too late.
