Yes, there are a few teamsters. We hoped of we added a section for them we might get more.

I've driven a few times, and it was great! hehe. I also always teach youngsters to ground drive before I even think about riding them :)

My horse is afraid of carts. He's ruined more than one show spooking at the carts. He would never drive.

I have not driven with a cart or anything, but I like to ground drive my horses. Also, this winter, I taught Dez how to pull me on skis - pretty fun. :) In the past we have also had a rider and someone pulled on a sled - also very fun, but you need goggles and a helmet in case of flying snow and snow chunks from the hooves. :) Anyway - that is my version of "driving". I have always wanted to teach my horses to pull a sleigh though.

I'm a driver! I started driving when my sister's show horse needed condtioning. I have only shown Hackney Pleasure Ponies, but hopefully, once I get my own show horse, that will change.
