Barry Hook

If you want to watch an awesome carriage trainer check out Barry Hook on youtube from Britain. The man is very skilled at retraining horses for driving and by watching various videos you can watch everything from a single pony to a hammerhead of Friesians. That was a term I'd never heard of but it's a five horse hitch, three abreast and two wheel horses. The middle horse is a bit ahead of the other two, thus forming a hammer head. The traffic he drives in would scare the willies out of most of us and the horses learn to cross a small river.

stalking lol.

Hiya and I don't mind you stalking me lol.
If and when you come over you will be more than welcome to stay.
I have not done a lot of showing as the lagistics are against me at the moment.
The last show I did was with tammy that was a ridden one.
The last driveing one I did was with the bds british driveing society at basldon essex with tricky and we did quite a few classes and a road drive and a cone course.
But since my frend chris has passed its been a bit of an up hill struggle.
Well nancy if you do come over to stay you can come and stay in my room at my house and ill have to clear some of the tack out.
Well my room is like the house in great expectations with the harness and the tack and there is tons of it.
The funny thing I have no off spring to pass it on to
my nephews I have not seen in a long time as me and my eldest brother do not get on.
My younger brother has 2 daughters and a son and hardley visit but its up to them.
So I say to my mum don't worrey what you don't see you don't miss its there loss.
I supose I could have had kids I would have been a great dad and with vanessa thay would have been rideing and driveing and may be we might have had a large barn with horses.
But its only a what if question and you can not turn back the hands of time.
I have not made a will at all the whole lot would be like a giant collection of my life.
So nancy drop us a line if your comeing over and the welcome will be a warm one and you can drive tricky he is nearley 30 and quincy.

Interesting man - I'm not into driving at all but do admire people who do it
Sadly the UK roads are becoming less and less horse friendly places though

We had to ride on the roads most of the time in the winter months where we lived - we had some great bridle tracks but if it rained they turned to knee deep mud paths!!!

bridle paths and mud.

That reminds me of bucks ally were I am now lol.
Epping forest was and is a good place to hack out in and well I have driven in there quite a lotand got chased by the mounted rangers there as you have to perchase a yearley id disc so you can ride in the forest.
Well thay came at me hell bent for leather I was driveing tandem at the time so I swung them round and chased them lol thay did not know what to do.
I had my 2 ponys trick and tammy to a 4 wheel exercise cart and thay were so responsive I likend them to a pair of class 86 locos hauling a rake of freightliners.
Tammys passed on and I only have trick now sigh I miss her so much and both of them were a loveley team.
