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.
