BHDTA & Junior Chariots
 Escrick Park, Yorkshire
25th & 26th September 2004

For the first time this year, the BHDTA and Junior Chariots are organising a carriage driving Championships for young drivers.

The new BHDTA Junior Championship is to receive financial support from the HDT Special Development Fund. An application from the BHDTA was considered by Trustees Prilly Baron, Jill Holah and Tom Pettifer, and it has been agreed that the fund will cover the cost of renting the venue for the event, to be held at Escrick Park near York in September. Jill explained ?The main aim of the fund has always been to promote the development of the sport, and we feel that this new Championship will be invaluable to encourage the next generation of competitors?.

Please be aware that the HDT rules only allow for a minimum age of 10 years to compete at an outdoor event. We are very sorry that those younger ones will not be able to take part in a normal competition, but if there is enough of you wanting to join in the occasion without your pony, we will see that there is something for everyone. The age of the Grooms must be in accordance with the BHDTA Rules. (check here)

It is very important that we know now whether you plan to attend this event. Please would you help us by emailing, telephoning or faxing your intentions before the 8th of June. We realise that it would seem a long way off, and this is short notice, but these events take a lot of organising and that takes time.

SCHEDULE and ENTRY FORM for the Championships is now available and can be downloaded and printed out. CLICK HERE to download it (please note - this is a PDF file and requires Adobe Acrobat reader on your computer)

We look forward to hearing your answer regarding attending the Championship as soon as possible.
