The BDS Young Drivers

 

This is a section especially for the Young Drivers of the BDS.

 

The Junior Commissioners

Commissioner for Junior Members: Emily Ham

“As someone who has come up through the juniors in the BDS I am very keen to ensure we have an active young driver membership with as many activities as possible at local as well as national level. I started driving with Sherry a 9 hand Shetland and had excellent training as a BDS junior as well as the opportunity to enjoy cones, camp, showing, socials, pleasure driving and fun events. There are many interesting places to visit and things to do.

I welcome any suggestions from those supporting the young drivers and of course would love to hear from our junior members about their driving, what they enjoy and what they would like to do.

My aim is to get to know you all, not just by name, so please send me some information about yourself and what you have been doing. Please come over and introduce yourself if the opportunity arises – at Shows & Events etc. I am always happy to help. Please do get in touch !”

BDS Junior Drivers

Commissioner for Junior Members: VICKY MORRIS

I would like to introduce myself to you all! I am Vicky Morris, I live in Dorset, I am 26 and you may know me through the Victoria Foods Show. I have 2 Welsh Section C ponies. One is called Barney who my family have owned for 17 years, and Bob, who is 9 years old. I go on regular drives around our lanes with them and compete in Private Driving classes across the South West with Bob.

I am very excited about the future of the BDS Juniors and can’t wait to hear and see what you have all been up to!
My pictures below are of Bob at BDS Devon last year, Barney in harness ready to be put into the carriage and the view when behind a team of Friesians. I have been driving since the age of 10. Barney was my first driving pony. I have driven singles, pairs and teams and I have also tried indoor carriage driving.
I would love to hear from you and know what you have been up to with your ponies or what you are hoping to do next year!! What horses do you drive/own? How old are they? What do you currently do with them throughout the year?

Kind Regards

Vicky
