It's combined driving, and it's a BLAST!!!!!! :) It's driving's version of eventing, cones is one section of three. The other two are dressage and the marathon which has hazards (which is a group of things you have to go around certain spots in a certain order).

You can learn about it here: index (geared towards minis, but it applies to big ones, too :)

I really wish I could competitively pleasure drive my paint, but he's not tall enough and we'd never do well at the bigger shows. :( Looks like a blast though!

Not tall enough??? Never heard that in terms of driving! (of course the only breed show driving I"m familiar with is minis haha)

Haha! Yours might fall into the category of 'too tall!'

I show APHA, and hunters and pleasure driving horses should look like TBs, only with some color. Lol, my horse is barely 15.1 and stocky with a really nice stride on him, so we have some issues with placing because we're so little! :)

My horse (the one on my avatar) is 17 hands his specialties are hunter and driving classes. My friend does show her 15-2 hand gelding with a nice stride in driving and does decent. In some driving classes it just takes consistancy.

Okay, I have to see if I can make this work. This is our morgan gelding Roo, in this video it was about his 5 or 6th time being harnessed.

Wow, I would love to drive a horse like Roo. I have never driven a high stepper.

man, this makes me wish I had someone to video my minis now! Around here some shows offer mini barrels and mini pole bending, me and my stallion love doing those two events! He is such a little speed demon, he does an average mini size barrel race in 28.0 seconds! We covered a full size barrel course one in just under a minute, it was like 57 or 58 seconds, I don't remember exactly on that one, but I know everyone was like wow! I just have a few pics which I will try to scan and add on here in a few minutes.

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!
