If done properly carriage driving is safer than riding.

I used to have a riding school and my insurance for that was thousands every year. ONce I stopped teaching riding and only taught carriage driving my insurance went down to a couple of hundred.

just have a chat with your mom and explain to her why you want to do it. and give her all the details to make her comfortable. thats what i do with my mom. i tell her what i plain to do, how i plan to do it, what is my safety, and who or what i plan to talk to, to get advice.

Tell your mom that it is no risky at all and you can earn good money with it.
