News from Zilco:

We are proud to announce that Zilco is sponsoring a series of Try Driving Days, in association with British Carriagedriving. The events are aimed at wider audience to encourage them to come along and find out about carriage driving as well as having the chance to take the reins and have a go! Try Driving Days are held throughout the year, in different locations in the UK and are open to anyone, horse riders and people completely new to equestrian sports. We at Zilco want to encourage people to take up carriage driving as a sport or simply as an opportunity to enjoy the great English countryside. As leading suppliers of driving harness worldwide, we are here to support you with any questions you may have. Each event includes several talks and an exciting taster session.

  • Introduction to carriage driving
  • Types of driving harness & practical sessions
  • Types of carriages used
  • Safety features
  • Carriage Driving experience

No prior experience needed. Come along to see what this sport is all about and each participant will receive a Zilco goody bag!
