Training Aids for Driving Trials – these simple guides were produced in 2012 by WDDC members Carol Gregory, Tony and Gill Bache for the benefit of members new to the sport and in preparation for the Charlcotte Farm Driving Trial Event held during September of that year.
Each season, the WDDC select, from the dressage tests available on the British Carriagedriving website, a test, comprising a set of written instructions plus diagrams of the track a horse or pony turnout is required to drive.
. It is available for members to download then study and practice in preparation for club events such as the Charlcotte One Day Trial
It includes some extended trot, two 20m diameter circles at collected trot, and two straight sections with the reins in one hand.
Where appropriate, a formula, requiring less stewarding and pre-event setup than a 6-obstacle trial, may be adopted. Members taking part in the winter season Indoor Horse Driving Trials will be familiar with the format, where only 2 obstacles are set up but are driven and timed twice to make a total of 4 obstacles. 2016/17 Indoor Dressage and a cones course (normally 10 pairs plus an A,B,C slalom) also form part of the competition format. The dressage arena will be 20m x 60m.
