What We Do

 There’s nothing I enjoy more than teaching people how to carriage drive, safely and correctly, with the traditional English Coaching Style of rein handling.

Whether it’s to go out for a jolly along a quiet country road with family and friends, or, if you’ve got higher aspirations and would like to show or compete in horse driving trials.

The Coaching Hand



I have been carriage driving for over 25 years. Taking part in private driving, club events, long distance driving and Indoor  Carriage Driving and Horse Driving Trials.

Safety ​First 

All beginner lessons will be carried out with two sets of reins, a bit like having duel controls on a learner car.

When carriage driving, visibility is of paramount importance! Hi-viz vest will be provided for all persons on the carriage.

Please note that when driving in fields and along track, these may be bumpy, so this activity may not be suitable for people with back issues. 

If you suffer from any health issues, please advise us when you make the booking, as a reasonable amount of mobility is required to mount the carriage.

Perfectly Trained Horses

We have 3 carriage horses, all being in the herd from an early age.

Holly and Lola, have both been trained to ride and drive by myself.

Benji was broken to ride autumn 2021 and is at present being broken to drive.

More about them later.
