Mission Statement

What are we about?

We are a friendly club that welcome newcomers and are happy to help them through their first steps into carriage driving. We are about getting together with like-minded people and enjoying this highly sociable sport.

The History of Our Club

How it all Began

The West Midlands Driving Group was founded in 1976 by the late George Rawlins and associates. It was for the like minded people who had an interest in the tradition of carriage driving. Turnouts were expected to be in best bib and tucker, plus traditional vehicles and harness for a formal Sunday afternoon drive. Then, returning to the host venue for high tea.

Obviously, over the years the club has endeavoured to move with the times. The club now offers a good grass roots introduction into carriage driving from instruction to pleasure drives, treasure hunts and fun trials plus a social scene without our equine friends.
