Who we are

Happy Landings Carriage Driving Group, which is affiliated to Riding for the Disabled,  was started in 1994  in Ifold, by a lady called Ann Sheldrake from her home ‘Happy Landings’ hence the name.  It is now based at Tismans Common, Nr Rudgwick where we drive from approximately April – October each year (weather dependent).

We are run as a Charity with a Board of Trustees who are responsible for the well being of the charity and its drivers and volunteers.


Without volunteers we simply would not exist
