Benefits

of Carriage Driving

Provides a recreational and sporting experience with a horse as well as a mental challenge similar to that of riding. Driving yields the challenge of working in harmony with a horse and learning an equine skill step by step.

Carriage driving encourages the development of self-confidence and a sense of accomplishment as various maneuvers are learned.

It can improve the cognitive skills of sequencing, following directions and differentiating between left and right, etc.

Driving is another venue for socializing with other participants, the volunteers and instructors, and of course, the horse. It offers another opportunity for developing relationships, equine and human, of mutual respect and trust.
