Single drivers head for France

  • Three British single horse drivers will be competing at the second World Singles Driving Championships in France later this month

    The 2002 World Singles Driving Championships at Conty in France (28 August -1 September) promises to be an exciting event for driving enthusiasts with top singles drivers from around the world taking part.

    The three-strong British team of Di Haynes (Hamewith Culmellie), Angela Flanagan (Samuel Penny) and former scurry driver David Mathews (pictured)(Carnwallon Boneddwr) will be competing against drivers from 22 other countries in the second running of the event.

    The championships are taking place 120km north of Paris at Les Ateliers de la Selle, a former cheese dairy, which has been transformed into an equestrian centre.

    International course designer Christian Iseli, who helped design the obstacles at the Pony Europeans at Sandringham, has built eight new obstacles for the event.

    The team, which includes Jimmy Robson as reserve, was announced following last month’s CAI-B event at Catton Park.
