Wolverley & District Driving Club
Wolverley, Nr Kidderminster in Worcestershire has been the home of Wolverley and District Driving Club (WDDC) since it was formed in 1976 by Mr Eric Green. The format has changed little over the years but the emphasis these days is more towards trials and driven eventing than in rallies and showing as in years gone by.
Off road drives are planned for the less competitive, although our emphasis will still be on fun-days and eventing type competitions culminating in One-Day Trials.
Created in 2000, the Millennium Cones Competition runs throughout the year, and competitors’ best performances count towards the final result. At the end of each year a presentation night is organised where annual trophies are given to members resulting from points accumulated over the year.
Support & Advice
Like the world over WDDC members may require and benefit from help and support in dressage and the general ‘way of going’ of their equines. Committee members are always happy to help and we are able to secure the services of Driving Instructors of the highest calibre.
Training is available for all and help and guidance is always on hand from experienced members to instruct and advise the driver or whip and the groom or back-stepper.
The aim of our club is to provide something for everyone – beginners and novices to experienced drivers, Shetlands to large horses, whether hoping to compete at National Driving Trial Events, attending fun days, bringing on a young horse, or just out to enjoy carriage driving for pleasure, and we are doing just that!
A number of social events are also arranged and include skittles nights, quiz nights and educational events.
