Introduction

This equestrian sport is increasing in popularity with all ages and abilities.  There are few limitations to carriage driving and it is an accessible and superb sport for those with a disability.

Often a riding pony outgrown is motivation for interest but as a sport in its own right driving is great fun.

Whether it be the exciting sports of Horse Driving Trials or Scurrying or the style and elegance of driving for showing or just for pleasure

Professional, knowledgeable tuition

We offer carriage driving tuition and expertise (singles/pairs) with our well-schooled horses from absolute beginner.  Driving training is using Coachman Rein Handling technique.  Pleasure, or Horse Driving Trials is our speciality.

All tuition is one-to-one and so based on individual needs & learning curve and taking into consideration objectives.  Private tuition with your own horse/s can also be arranged or guided drives out. 

Long reining lessons are also available to help you bring on and school your own horse at home.  (Phone for a quote)

Learn how to assemble a set of harness and fit to horse.  How to 'put to' to a 2 or 4 wheeled vehicle.  How to hold the reins and guide the horse in the direction and pace you require in the safe confines of our premises.
Carriage driving taster sessions will be available as an introduction and gift vouchers are available.

For those who are wheel-chair bound  or semi ambulent and want to drive horse-drawn carriages, we have an easy loading specifically designed and manufactured vehicle.   Because our training is based on individual's needs we are delighted to discuss specific requirements for people with disability.  Also see details regarding our holiday cottage for provision for people with disability.
