Who We Are?

Happy Landings Carriage Driving Group helps people with disabilities by providing them with opportunities to drive a horse drawn carriage, acquire new skills and enhance social interaction. The Group’s activities enable our disabled drivers to live more fulfilling lives.

All of those participating (disabled and volunteers) come together to learn new skills in a safe environment including horsemanship, driving and communication as well as improving their personal well-being through activity and social interaction. For the more disabled, they can experience the pleasure of driving along quiet lanes while the more ambitious are able to progress to participation in local or even national competitions with other Groups.

As an established charitable Group, affiliated with the Riding for the Disabled Association (RDA), The Group has over 25 years’ experience of successfully providing services to the disabled.
