Drivers who have competed regularly at Midlands Carriagedriving events did well at the recent British Carriagedriving National Championships, held at Ashfields Carriage & Polo Club (13-15 August).

Emma Young successfully defended her 2019 National Pony Four title – there being no championships held last year – with an excellent marathon and cones to overcome the challenge by dressage leader, and fellow MC supporter, Angela Smith who finished runner-up.
