Carriage Driving

Carriage Driving 

Carriage Driving gives those who are unable to mount a horse the opportunity to experience the fun and enjoyment of equestrian activities.

Carriage driving allows participants a feeling of independence which can increase their levels of self esteem and confidence and offers many of the same benefits as riding:

* Improved co-ordination
* Improved muscle power
* Improved balance
* Relaxation through rhythmic movement
* Being out in the open air

 

Non-physical benefits:
* Decision making
* Making friends
* Achievement
* Self confidence
* Having fun!
