In this issue we head to Exloo in the Netherlands for two FEI finals - the World Para Championships for Singles, where Team GB took the bronze medal and the European Four-in-Hand, which saw Bram Chardon once again claim the European title. Staying in Europe but at a gentler pace, we follow the Route de Lorraine – where carriage drivers from across the world enjoyed days of driving through beautiful countryside, stopping off at castles and country houses and catching up with old friends.
Susan Dunne talks to wheelwright Rodney Greenwood about realising a dream to build a horse-drawn omnibus from the original plans. The RDA National Championships saw 15 carriage driving groups from across the UK shine as they enjoyed the finals in wind and rain. We have reports from the Donkey Breed Society National Championships; The Cricklands Festival of Carriage Driving combined a week of top-class training with the Certius Short Format National Carriagedriving Championships, including an international competition between drivers in the UK and Australia.
In Coaching Chatter, Bob Elliott reflects on the history of a traditional meet and why Woburn provides a perfect alternative.
