Carriage Driving in South West Scotland and North Cumbria.

Welcome to Dumfries & Galloway Horse Driving Club
Based in Dumfries and Galloway the club runs carriage driving events in south west Scotland and North Cumbria. 

The club has been in existence for over 30 years, started by driving enthusiasts looking for more excitement than the showing classes that were the norm in the mid seventies.

The club is run by enthusiasts for enthusiasts, not just for the competitive ones looking for experience before moving on to national competitions, but for drivers looking for a bit of fun and those who have been there, done it and are now just looking to drive and help bring on new drivers.

Our aim over the next few years is to encourage new people to enter the driving arena and together, develop our skills and competences.
