COMPETITORS travelled from across the region and out of state to attend the Murrumbidgee Carriage Driving Club's latest event.
The club held a one-hour carriage driving event at the Murrami sportsground on May 20, with 17 competitors, including six from Victoria taking part.
Competitors took part in obstacle and cone events, as well as a three-kilometre marathon.
Club member Gail Habermann said the sport appeared to be gaining in popularity.
"The day ran quite smoothly ... obviously it's quite different to other horse events," she said.
"Instead of horse jumping you have the cones with the tennis balls on top and instead of cross country there's the obstacles that follow a pattern to be negotiated by the driver and horse.
"We had two new members join up on Sunday."
Mrs Habermann said the club would be continuing to get the word out about the sport.
"I don't think a lot of people realise what it is, but we will be having an introduction to carriage driving day in Griffith in July," she said. "When Prince Philip did it, it was quite popular and everyone seemed to know about.
"So now we are trying to push it again and make it more known."
The Murrumbidgee club hosts numerous events throughout the year and also attends others throughout the region.
"There are many types of events," Mrs Habermann said.
The club will hold a heavy horse event on June 24 and an introduction day in Griffith on July 29.
