Winter Season Indoor Driving

.

WDDC Member Julie Wedgbury driving her team of ‘Flying Hamsters’ at Moreton Morrell

During October – March inclusive, a series of indoor events, open to WDDC members are held monthly on Saturdays or Sundays at a number of locations around the UK.

Known as Indoor Carriage Driving, they are a great environment for young and novice drivers to develop their skills and equine fitness ready for the summer outdoor season. Experienced drivers too are attracted to the format in which they can qualify for National Championships.

The Wales and West Equestrian Centre, Monmouthshire and Moreton Morrell, Warwickshire are two locations within the WDDC catchment. At each of those venues, hot food is available – nothing like a bacon sandwich and a hot drink on a cold winter’s morning!

Annual membership of Indoor Carriage driving UK costs £30.00 plus an entry fee for each event of £35.00
