Combined DrivingCombined driving is often compared to three-day eventing, the sport from which it was derived. However, when watching the marathon phase, it’s more like the rally racing done with sports cars. In the marathon phase of a combined driving event, drivers navigate through complex hazards over a cross-country course with one, two, or four horses. Without the leg and seat aids that riders use, drivers rely heavily on voice commands to direct their horses.

Here’s a driver’s-eye view of the marathon phase of the 2011 Windy Knoll CDE behind a team of Friesian/Saddlebred mares.

  1. Well, that was fun! That’s the view I usually have! And I’m glad to know I’m not alone in making funny noises when I drive.

  2. WOW, that is fun but yet scary! Those are some tight turns and tight spots. Amazing that the cart don’t get a wheel hung up on the obstacles!
