Driving

Learn all you can about hitching up a horse to a vehicle, which tack and equipment to use, techniques, and variations within the discipline, which can be done recreationally, in pleasure classes, and in the sport of combined driving. Horse Illustrated covers the sport, regardless of whether the equine being used is a horse, pony, mule, or donkey, and the vehicle is a wagon, carriage, cart, sleigh, or other horse-drawn vehicle. This discipline includes pleasure classes, combined driving, farm work, harness racing, and more. Read news from competitions or features on techniques, including long lining; how to get started in the sport and how to improve your skills, stories from those who participate, and more. This discipline is organized by the American Driving Society, the Carriage Association of America, local clubs, and associations in other countries.
