Lessons can be 1-to-1 for individuals and we work in partnership with other charities & schools to provide group sessions.
All coaching is designed to suit each person's own abilities. They will learn to drive a pony as well as how to groom and harness their pony before and after each lesson.
As their sports driving skills improve, some of our drivers compete at local, regional and national Indoor and Outdoor carriage driving competitions.
