Welcome to Midlands Carriagedriving

Onley Regional & Club Event

Our next MC event is a biggie! We are very excited, preparations are going well and entries are already coming in for the joint Regional and club events held at the equestrian centre near Rugby on August 5 & 6th.

There are a huge array of classes, and two separate schedules which we hope makes it clearer which class number you are looking for. Start fees are payable for the Regional event ONLY, and will need to be paid when you collect your paperwork on Friday. 

We are still able to take more stewards for both days, contact Rosemary Wall if you can spare a few hours or the day. Lunch provided and the lovely competitors bring a gift for you to take away too! Email rosieawall@gmail.com

Thoresby full results can be found here.

New in 2018!

Due to popular demand we have altered our One Day Event and spread it over two days. Dressage and cones will be done after the full competitors have finished their tests, and in your smart outfits rather than marathon gear, at carriage marathon width in all phases, and the marathon will run first thing on the Sunday morning over a shorter distance. Ideal for new horses or for those of us that struggle to get full fitness into our steeds! This class will be open to singles and multiples, the class will be divided should numbers warrant. 

A heartfelt letter has been written by one of our board members and makes some very valid points. Please give us your feedback!

MC will be enforcing the Body/Back Protector rule at all of our events, further details are available here.
