CARRIAGE DRIVING CAMP WEEK
In association with “Highland Carriage Drivers” Club
Kingussie – Mon 11th to Sun 17th June 2018
The Camp will take place at the “Speyside Beach Meadows” equestrian venue by kind permission of Mr
Ruaridh Ormiston of HHF and the Cairngorms RDA Group and run as a Highland Carriage Drivers Event. All
owners or drivers of turnouts should have their own insurance cover and the event will be covered by HCD
club event insurance. This is an informal week to introduce people to carriage driving and a chance to learn
together from each other, while training for the Test on Sunday. There will be some experienced carriage
drivers on hand to give advice and BHS Riding and Road Safety Instructors to help with the Road Safety
angle too. The week deliberately has no fixed program to give maximum flexibility. Training aids for road
safety, carriage driving and an 80m x 40m enclosed sand driving arena will be available too. There is ample
fields and quiet roads around the venue for drive outs and practice – early arrival on Sat 9th is also possible.
We will have some Beach BBQ’s and parties to ensure we all have an amazing week of fun, laughter and
frolics. Jane Macinnes LHHI will also give a talk on the Saturday night to put candidates at maximum ease.
There are no specific charges for the week for taking part or for parking, corralling, grazing, basic
accommodation, showers, etc. - however it is hoped people will make a donation to Cairngorms Riding for
the Disabled Group who hope to get their Carriage Driving section up and running this year and whom will
use this as a training event for their volunteers and to get their drivers through the BDS Road Safety Test.
BDS Road Driving Safety Assessment Test - Sunday 17th June
Preference will be given to HCD members and those training with HHF and CRDA. (5 to 8 places
