Out-of-Area events

Suggestions for other activities are always welcome. Please contact the Steering Group.

Any ideas that are already on the 'wish-list' would need a suitable venue – are you able to help? If you have a suitable flat area for cones and dressage plus room for parking, and feel able to offer it for an event, the Steering Group would be delighted to hear from you.

EVENT RULES:
Remember to bring your B.D.S. membership card with you to all driving events as proof of insurance. Each turnout should carry a competent groom at all times. Juniors aged 14 and under must wear hard hats when driving and must be accompanied by an adult.
