Indoor training day

New Barn E.C., Chelford

29th September 2019


The presentation evening has moved to the 19th October due to several event clashes.

Tickets are on sale for £15 per head, payable in advance. This includes a buffet meal, entertainment and the presentation. There will be a tombola running to raise funds for Alzheimers society, please bring prizes to donate, on the night and come and celebrate a successful year.

Ticket payment is in advance only by cheque or online. Please send your requests to chdtg1@gmail.com.


Entries for the indoor training day on the 29th September are limited due to car park size, so they will be accepted on a first come first served basis.


Entries for the indoor qualifier classes this winter, will NOT be accepted unless there is a valid ICDC number on the entry form. Also for any competitors paying online, the entry will not be accepted until the money is in the club account.



We will be updating you of the rule changes at the AGM but we felt it was important to highlight in advance that we will be enforcing the British Carriage Driving Rules relating to vaccinations at all our events (please see Annex11 on the BC rule book for full details)

All equines must have up to date and complete 12 monthly vaccination records to attend one of our events and we will be checking vaccination records of all competitors and undertaking spot checks throughout the year. Please ensure you have your equines passport at the events for inspection.

The entry forms will be altered to aid this process and the declaration of vaccination must be completed if you wish to attend the events.
You will also note a change with request for equines registered name which has to be the name as documented on the passport (we will no doubt have to make it a long enough space for some!)

Please read Annex 11 in the BC rule book on the British Carriage Driving Website prior to attending the events and remember you have to have had your vaccination 7 days prior to an event..
we will be checking these details and we will be checking that they have a complete history.
(Don’t panic though as Gaps in History can be overcome by having the primary vaccination course again)

We hope you understand this enforcement and please ask if you have any doubts
