British Heavy Horse Driving Trials Club


The BHHDTC was formed by enthusiasts to expand the leisure use of heavy horses which in the past were associated only with draught work in agriculture and industry. Now that this role has almost disappeared it has become essential to find new areas of activity if the future of these magnificent animals is to be assured and our British breeds to continue.

We are a friendly group of people who extend a warm welcome to everyone with an interest in heavy horses, and meet for weekends through the summer to compete in driving events in beautiful countryside followed by enjoyable social evenings.
It is not necessary to be a horse owner or be knowledgeable about horses to be a member. Even if you do not own a heavy horse you are very welcome to join in the fun as a steward, groom or just a spectator, so why not come along to one of our events, meet the members and see for yourself.

We welcome families and groups as well as individuals and look forward to seeing you at one of our forthcoming events. If you have any questions not answered on this site please contact us.
