Carriage Driving in the New Forest giving disabled adults the freedom to take the reins.
We are a registered charity (Charity No. 1102116) and are based in the New Forest in Hampshire. UK. The aims of the group are to provide adult disabled people with the opportunity to carriage drive in order to benefit their health and well being. We meet on Tuesday afternoons from April to October,weather permitting, at venues throughout the New Forest in agreement with the Forestry Commission. Through the winter we meet monthly to hold socials such as talks and quizzes.

You don’t have to be ‘horsey’ to help! However we do need lots of volunteers. Some roles are active and some are more administrative. We offer companionship and picnic sites! For more information on all the ways that you can help.
