Our Committee

Linda Wiggin

Chairperson

I have had a lifetime involved in both riding and driving horses. I first joined WMDG in 1995 after taking up carriage driving when I could no longer ride. I credit the club in getting me well established with my driving skills and introducing me to driving trials. During my time with the club I have served on the committee for many years. I am always keen to encourage new members and to encourage people to take up carriage driving.

Marian Gibson

Vice-Chairperson

I have been an active driving member of the club since 1994 and have seen many changes over the years, going from a rally orientated club to a good grass roots competition club.

Jeanette Mills

Treasurer

I got involved with the club from Linda, not being from a horse background only having a family bet on the grand national each year was as close as I got. I started by doing a bit of stewarding with the guidance of Betty King, then got involved with other activities that the club offer. When Anne Taylor stepped down as club treasurer, Linda asked if I would like to take on the roll, & 2 years later I am still part of the committee.

Vicki Parry

Membership Secretary

I been driving for 13 years, my horse is Tyson age 22. Together we enjoy dressing up for the drives and participating in the treasure hunts.

Louise Wright

Safeguarding Officer

I have owned horses most of my life and have pleasure driven for over twenty years. I joined WMDG in 2016 with the aim to pursue and learn more about competitive driving as this was something I had missed due to giving up riding for health reasons. The club is extremely supportive and encouraging and I continue to gain an enormous amount of experience and knowledge since joining. I have enjoyed competing at club and indoor events along with pleasure driving and would encourage anyone who wants to enjoy, learn and take part in friendly events to get in touch with the club.
