We showcase all the winners and finalists of the 2020 Carriage Driving awards, celebrating outstanding achievement across the driving disciplines. We talk to Andrew Counsell, the new chairman of British Carriagedriving and share his thoughts and ideas for the future; we meet Fiona Gordon-Clarke of Carriagehouse Insurance and discover how she has found the perfect way to balance work and horses. In our Health and Welfare section, Life Data Labs looks at the benefits of proper nutrition in preventing white line disease. Susan Dunne talks to Louise Kaiholm about her decision to return home to Denmark; Bob Elliott reports on a European coaching adventure; British Grooms have advice on making sure you are as fit as your horse; Lester Dagge explores the influence of colour in carriage driving history and tradition. We find out how the Shire horses of Operation Centaur are helping to maintain and conserve ancient woodlands and we meet the Blue Cross charity cobs looking for a forever home.
