Driving

Posted by Saddle Up on Jan 16th 2019

Driving is a popular equestrian sport, although not as popular as riding. The sport harkens back to the days when horses were the only mode of transportation and were used to pull carriages, wagons, trolleys, carts, and farm equipment.

Today many people compete in different driving events or show off their team of horses at performances and shows. Horses of all different sizes and breeds can learn to drive, from a miniature horse pulling a small cart, to a large draft horse.

Horses must be trained to drive, but once they know it can be a really fun pastime!
