Carriage driving enthusiasts in West Sussex and Essex have the opportunity to pick up the reins and learn more about the sport by taking part in subsidised training courses.

The “Driving Back to Sport” project, funded by Sport England, has already introduced 120 new adults to driving in the counties of Nottinghamshire, Devon, Cheshire and Yorkshire.

There are 68 places now available on five-day courses taking place at Albourne Equestrian Centre (West Sussex) and Ashfields Carriage and Polo Club (Essex) throughout April, May and June.
