Learn to drive a horse and carriage in just 3 days!

Learn everything you need to safely harness and control both a 2 wheeled cart and a 4 wheeled carriage in 3 or 5 days.

On this intensive course you will learn how to:

  • safely harness and put the cart to the horse
  • be confident in your ability to drive
  • have lots of hands-on experience with 3 different horses on our track system

Our driving activity holidays are designed to help get you up and running with driving a cart / carriage with real, hands-on experience on our track system with our cart horses. Each has their own personality and we’ll help you feel confident with each and teach you techniques that will help you manage a variety of situations that you could encounter.

Set in the beautiful Somerset levels and surrounded by a nature reserve, HorseHavenUK is the ideal location to learn to drive and a cooked vegetarian lunch is provided for the duration of your stay.  It’s ideal for couples or friends looking for something a little different – and there’s a substantial discount available when booking for 2.

What our students have said

wonderful course! Lovely people, great laid back atmosphere and delicious lunch. Course was fantastic, just the right amount of lecture, demonstrations and practical sessions and loads of opportunities for hands on “have a go” and with a nunber of different horses. Would thoroughly recommend.Reviewed by zelkins E

A rare opportunity to spend time with horses who are genuinely cared for! A good track system, natural shade and peaceful location provided and ideal environment for the animals to feel happy and in turn for humans to be too 🙂 only attended a short one day course but the owner had some wonderful helpers and staff on hand and everyone was catered for.
