A statement from the British Carriage Driving council said: ” We received a first class bid from James Broome, which more than met all of the criteria set out in the tender document and we are therefore delighted to say that the 2018 Championships will, by kind permission of Mr. David Broome OBE, be held at the David Broome Equestrian Centre at Cricklands on 14, 15 and 16 September 2018.

 “Going forwards, Council plans to start the tender process for 2019 much earlier, in the hope that we will be able to identify other equally suitable venues and organisers with a view to holding the championships in different parts of the country in 2019 and thereafter.
“In the long term we would, however, like to identify a geographically central location at which we could hold our Championships each year.
