Once again our annual 'Have a Go’ Carriage Driving day at the Bennington Carriage Driving Academy in Nottinghamshire proved immensley popular attracting BHS members from all around the East Midlands.
Lead by Sue Mart, Bennington's UKCC Level 3 coach and her team, the groups of BHS members enjoyed an introduction to Carriage Driving. This consisted of driving Bennington’s experienced ponies, long reining, harness fitting, rein handling, driving a cones course and having a go at backstepping.
There was also time to browse the well stocked shop (a mecca for carriage driving enthusiasts) and have a guided tour the workshops. The state of the art Bennington Carriages which are built on site in these workshops which have supplied carriages to the British Royal Family and Disney and are shipped to many destinations around the world.
