Harness Club is set for new season

Brockham Harness Club is one of the longest-established driving clubs in the country, having been founded in late 1969 by a number of enthusiasts. Today is has a large number of members who have competed with great success both Nationally and Internationally.

During the year the club has plenty of events for members, ranging from instruction and demonstrations to fun days and one or two-day events. It also organises the biennial Carriage Driving Fair at Merrist Wood.

The club caters for members with all levels of experience, with a programme of pleasure driving, showing and access to FEI competitions.

Anyone interested in carriage driving is welcome to join the club, where they can meet others with similar interests and also have access to help and advice on driving in general.
