The Story Of Carriage Driving is the title of a talk being given to Westerham Society on Friday, January 11 2019 by Sara Howe who runs the Bradbourne Carriage Driving Centre in Sevenoaks.
Sara will be at Westerham Hall at 7.30pm to share her knowledge and enthusiasm for carriage driving.
She has been a top international carriage driver since 2003, representing Great Britain as a team member in more than five world championships. She has won three bronze medals and been the UK National single pony and Team champion numerous times.
Although Sara is a very keen competitor herself, some of her other proudest moments have been in her role as the Chef d’Equipe and team trainer at international competitions for The Para-Equestrian Carriage Driving Team and British Young Drivers where these teams have also celebrated medal successes.
She is a key figure in the training programme for many of the junior drivers in this country and finds it very rewarding supporting them and watching them develop their skills.
Sara is also an RDA carriage driving assessor and road safety examiner for many of the local groups in Kent and Surrey.
On a daily basis she teaches novices the art of carriage driving by loaning the use of a turnout from her centre, as well as, continuing to support more experienced drivers in their schooling and competition techniques with their own turnouts.
The Magical Mystery Of Houdini is the title of a talk to be given to the Westerham Society on Friday, February 8 at 7.30pm by Joe Mendell.
The event will tell the story of the greatest escapologist and magician of his era
