Mid Suffolk carriage driving for the disabled
Many of you in Bedfield have seen the horses and carriages driving through the village as we exercise and keep the horses fit. We meet on Mondays at all sorts of different venues. Farms, pub drives, Rendlesham Forest and local drives. Two of our horses live in Bedfield and two in Dennington. We have disabled adults who come and drive with us and many learn to hold the reins and drive the horse very well. Recently we have been to some new venues. On May 22nd we drove from Worlingworth Hall. We are very grateful to the Hall Committee for allowing us to do so. We always have tea and sandwiches and cakes which were consumed that day on the terrace of the village hall with the sun blazing down.
Another venue is Hamish & Mary Dickson's Farm in Bedfield. James their son has been driving with us for many years. Our Monday there was made very special because we were able to have our food & drink in their beautiful barns, which were used for John & Kayleigh’s wedding recently.
We would like to thank all those drivers who slow down when they see us. We appreciate it very much. Gloria Bell
