As the majority of the Carriage Driving world is probably by now aware The Hand Equestrian Centre, Clevedon ceased trading in December 2014, and will remain closed for the foreseeable future, after an exhaustive search over the last six months for an alternative suitable venue we have been left with sadly no alternative than to cancel this years Show.
However good news for all 2015 qualifiers for the Victoria Foods South Western Exercise and Pleasure Driving Championship and the Victoria Foods National Private Driving Championships, these will go ahead, we have come to an arrangement with The Royal Berkshire Show held at the Newbury Show ground, who have granted ring space and time to stage these Championships at 5pm in Ring 5 on Saturday 19th of September 2015, in the next few weeks we will be sending out Entry forms to Qualifiers home adresses, entry to the Championships are free, and we will provide entrants with passes to the Show ground free of charge.
We would hope that those of you who attend for the Championships would support the Royal Berkshire Show by entering their Driving Classes which are held on Sunday 20th September.
