The Members of The Club have established this web site for 2 purposes:
- To inform Members what’s being planned and what’s been happening.
- To give non-members and those not at present involved in Carriage Driving, an insight into our enthusiasm for this great sport.
You will be able to read about Upcoming Events together with past events and Results achieved by those members who’ve taken part.
The Club publishes quarterly Newsletters, shown as ‘posts’ on the homepage.
If you are considering joining us, contact the Club Secretary via the Information Page. The Secretary will suggest a suitable event for you to come along and observe.
Those without horses are also welcomed as there is always plenty to see and plenty to do!
We are affiliated to the British Driving Society and the British Carriagedriving, liasing with both governing bodies to provide up to date information for our members. For more about the governing bodies, follow the links on this page.
Wolverley, Nr. Kidderminster in Worcestershire has been the home of Wolverley and District Driving Club since it was formed in 1977.
For the less competitive, off road drives (country drives) with privileged access to private estates, form part of the calendar, sometimes with a cones competition forming an optional addition. Short-format driving trial competitions complete the driving events calendar.
Wolverley members requiring guidance and help with dressage and the general ‘way of going’ of their equines are able to access the services of Driving Instructors of the highest calibre.
Help and guidance is always on hand to instruct and advise the back-stepper (groom) and driver (whip) alike.
We are always keen to encourage the Junior Drivers who, if under the age of 18, must have written consent from a parent or guardian but who will be covered by the club’s safeguarding policy and insurance by way of their affiliation to British Carriagedriving.
The Club caters for all sizes, from Shetlands to small ponies, to full size horses. Following a summer season of events, there is always a social winter calendar, sometimes purely social, but occasionally, informative and instructional. A points league runs throughout the year for both Whips, Grooms and helpers.
The aim of The Club is to provide something for everyone, whether hoping to compete at National Driving Trial Events, attending fun days, bringing on a young horse, or just out to enjoy carriage driving for pleasure and doing just that!
