MAKING A START ON OUR PARA DRIVING JOURNEY

- Louise Blanche

An action packed two days with horses, drivers, backsteppers and coaches all enjoying their time together was had by all those that attended the recent CDSG-dd Traing at the Unicorn Trust, Stow on the Wold earlier this month.

 

With an array of drivers and turnouts in attendance many travelled from various locations nationwide to come together at the fabulously well equipped Unicorn Centre to work with UKCC Coaches Sarah Howe and Rachel Belliere-Wilson and learn from each other.

 

There was also opportinity to discuss different ways of enhancing seating arrangements for drivers and their helpers.

Everyone came with their own different aims and objectives and I personally found the whole experience hugely positive as it was my first visit with my own (Ok, my children's pony) and after being coached by Rachel and discussions with Sara and Margaret know what we need to do next  to follow on our para Driving journey.. Cheetah (the Pony), Nicky ( my friend and backstepper) and I definitely would like to improve enough to be considered for part of the team one day.
 
Park Lane RDA - travelled from Twickenham with two turnouts and all Drivers and coaches felt more confident and that they had built on their skill set by the time they left.  They were also full of praise for the standard of accommodation both for themselves and the horses. And very impressed by the quality of the meals- an essential component for optimum performance.
