The elegant world of the horse and carriage comes to Windsor Great Park next weekend.
The British Horse Driving Trials Association National Championships are being held at Queen Victoria’s Parade Ground in Windsor Great Park from Friday to Sunday, September 7-9.
The dressage on Friday will see horses and ponies performing movements within a marked arena. On Saturday participants will have to find the quickest route through obstacles. Sunday sees the climax as drivers steer a course of cones.
More 120 drivers and 200 horses and ponies will vie for one of 15 Championship titles.
Visitors can also enjoy a dog show. There will be trade stands, food and a licensed bar.
Admission is free on Friday, and £10 per car (up to four adults) or £5 per person on foot on Saturday and Sunday. Children under 16 years and BHDTA members will be admitted free on all three days.
