Training the Driving Horse

Lessons and Training for Horse and Driver


Carriage driving can be a fun and exciting activity for both horse and human.


The Classical training of riding horses includes long-lining/ ground-driving, so teaching a horse to pull a carriage is not far from the path to teaching a horse to accept a rider.


Many people seem to pursue driving as a way to enjoy working with horses even though they may not be a top-level rider. Driving is however, even more dangerous than riding horses since there is more equipment to break down and it is more difficult to dismount from a carriage (and more serious consequences) than falling from a horse’s back. Carriage driving is not a sport to pursue if you looking for an “easy” sport.AprilValDressageWalk2
