We are always very grateful to the helpers that we have at our events as without stewards and timekeepers we would not be able to have a successful event. But we need more helpers, if there is anyone who can spare some time on an event day please come along and give us a hand, you don’t need to know a lot about carriage driving as we’ll show you what we need. We also need people who could help us paint some obstacles.

Entry fees:- £20. Juniors 10.00.

To all our Members and Kind Volunteers,
Regrettably due to the on going Covid 19 virus, the possibility of a six month lockdown on the horizon, closure of most of the venues and the impossible task of getting or keeping ponies fit, the Committee have taken the decision to cancel all future events including The Kielder Weekend.

We are retaining the dates booked with Newton Rigg with the hope that by then this will all be behind us and we can use the venue to hold some training days.

Keep checking the clubs Website and Facebook page for future updates and if anyone would like to place photo's or information onto these please send them to hazelmcloughlin@rocketmail.com 

Please take care and stay safe,
DGHDC Committee.
TBA. Junior members instruction days working towards their Competency Certificate.
