Driving horses is fun!

I drive horses and i think that it is soo much, doing fast work is one of the best adrienale run ever!
Harness horses are just amazing.

I also prefer driving to riding... much easier on the hips!!!! Sadly April is a wee bit high strung for driving at this point and I am leasing out Chloe.

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

I love driving! Never done anything but pacers though. One day I'd like to try the more traditional carriage type driving.

I have never had the pleasure of doing any driving. I'd like to one day.

Oh I too love driving! I used to drive carriage horses downtown on horse drawn carriage tours.. I miss the horses! It was sooo relaxing at the end of the night driving back to the barn and just hearing the clopping noises... I loved at the end of the night after our work was done just spending time brushing them down.. *sigh*

i agree! riding is my main thing...but it's always nice to hitch up (especially my mini) and be able to go all around and just take in the scenery
