Overview

A book that will take the most novice beginner and permit him or her to progress to any level of driving with a clear understanding of how and why things are done. -William E. Miller, M.D., President, American Driving Society [The authors] obviously know their subject well and treat it with much sensitivity and wisdom. I only wish I had this book before I started my driving program. -Sasha Rockefeller The modern bible of carriage driving . . . now back by popular demand Widely renowned as the definitive book on training the driving horse, Carriage Driving offers an easy-to-follow, practical guide to this increasingly popular sport. The philosophy is simple but remarkably effective: If driving is as much fun for your horse as it is for you, he will be a willing partner in the endeavor. With that in mind, Carriage Driving focuses on building a strong physical, mental, and emotional relationship with your horse. Equine mechanics, selecting the right bit and tack, harnessing, and ground training are just a few of the topics addressed. Drivers at any level will benefit greatly from this groundbreaking book, which has stood for more than a decade as the preeminent resource on training a balanced, responsive, and safe driving horse.
