Anyways, I wanted to read up a little bit about driving, training, and everything involved in it. Are there any really good books that you would suggest? I guess I am just curious about driving and want to learn more about it :).
Agree with Essential Guide to Carriage Driving Robyn Cuffey and Jaye Allison Winkel.
A book that was recommended by many clinics is Carriage Driving by Bean and Blanchard.
If you are interested in work horses, the Work Horse Handbook and Training Teams books are excellent, lots of photos!
If you order from www.buggystuff.com
put the word buggystuff in the discount section for a 10% discount
They have DVD's also, Teach Your Horse to Drive by Mary Ruth Marks is very good
