Driving is hosting an Awareness Day for the other small equestrian disciplines involved with BEF and UKcc. Everyone will be working across the disciplines and will be involved in practical learning tasks to give you a flavour of what UKcc is all about. You will also be given guidance on what to do to if you wish to join the project. This will be a fun, interactive taster day.

Cost: ?10 per head which will include coffee and lunch. We need to know numbers to organise the catering and paperwork. Please contact: Ann Varley, The Old Smithy Cottage, Boreland, Lockerbie ? - by 1 October and send payment in full. Cheques made out to BHDTA. ?20 on the day but please don?t let this be you.

Please note: No dogs allowed in The Unicorn Trust building.

UKcc Driving is open to everyone involved in instructing/training/coaching in all driving disciplines. UKcc is all about coaching and is not a skills qualification. UKcc has 4 levels which progress from an Assistant to International Coaches. Most driving coaches will work at Level 2. Therefore the Awareness Day will focus on Level 2 but coaches interested in all levels are welcome, as the concept is the same throughout.

UKcc involves a course which introduces you to coaching. The course is all about ?How to Coach? skills. Following the training course there is a period of time when you will put into practice the things you have learnt. The final part of the course is an assessment day. The Awareness Day will let you know what this is about, how the levels work and what you need to do to become involved.

Almost 30 sports are involved in UKcc, through sportUK. Equestrian is seen as a Pathfinder sport. UKcc is a government approved qualification and financial support is available. All equestrian disciplines work together to develop the project, follow the same syllabus and are working to the same level. Some UKcc Driving coaches are already working across disciplines.

If you wish to be involved with UKcc you need to attend an Awareness Session. Everyone is invited to attend, whether intending to join the scheme or just curious. Further smaller sessions will be held in the South of England and in Scotland at a later date. If that still doesn?t help, please contact Ann Varley and she will see what she can do to help you.

Many thanks to the Salisbury Bursary Fund for making this day possible.

We look forward to seeing you on 7 October at Stow on the Wold.
