Dalmakerran Carriage Driving


30th September & 1st October

The annual Dalmakerran Carriage Driving event run by the South West Scotland Horse Driving Club was postponed this year due to the weather & a water-logged field. The club confirmed earlier this week that they would like to hold an “end of season” fun event this weekend at Dalmakerran and we have agreed.

The format will be very different this year as the field is still too wet to use. There is likely to be a drive out on the roads on both Saturday and Sunday so please be aware that there will be horses and carriages on the roads around the village and the A702 over the weekend.

I have been warned that the drives out will involve some fun competitions so please be aware that competitors may need to stop to collect something or read a sign or letter placed by the road. The club will undertake to make the drives as safe as possible from their perspective but they are always grateful for the additional care taken by motorised vehicle drivers during the event weekend.

If anyone is interested in watching…or brave enough to join in with the none-horse activities/games then contact us on 200379 or simply come along and join in the fun!
