Would you like to learn to drive a horse and cart?  If the answer is YES then this  is definitely the workshop for you. 

Join us on Saturday 15th September 2018 for an action filled day.

This is a fun and informative introduction to driving a horse and cart.

It’s a great day out with lots of learning and practical hands on experience.

 

 

A very popular workshop that fills up quickly.

We make full use of our track system for the driving experience where you will learn to manoevre the cart around various obstacles and mock road works which are set up on the track.

We only take small groups in order that everyone gets plenty of driving experience and individual attention.

In the morning you will learn about the harness and its various parts, tacking up and safely putting the horse to the cart.

Refreshments provided throughout the day and there will be a short break for lunch which is included.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In the afternoon everyone will have the opportunity to ride in the cart and take the reins.

All activities take place in the safe environment of our full size arena and around our extensive track system where you will encounter road works, T junctions etc. to simulate things that might be found on the road without worrying about traffic.

The day is packed with learning and lots of practical exercises including spatial awareness of the cart, tacking up the horse, removing tack, and understanding what different parts of the harness do.

There will be plenty of driving opportunities and you will get the chance to drive several different horses as each horse offers a different driving experience.

Dean Dibble is the tutor for this workshop.

Dean has been around horses most of his life and is a very experienced trainer.

He has a lovely gentle energy when working with horses and people alike creating a safe and positive experience for both.

Why not join us in September for a fun, informative day?

If after this taster day you find driving is something you would like to pursue we offer further training which  goes into much greater depth where you will experience driving a 4 wheel carriage on the track plus road work.

I can promise you there will be fun and surprises in store for all!

Although we have a warm cosy workshop space most of the work will be outdoors so please  bring warm comfortable clothes and sturdy footwear. Waterproofs just in case with our Somerset weather being unreliable.

Individual private sessions are available by prior arrangement. For more details contact Suzannah at suzannah@horsehavenuk.com   or telephone 07545 139009

Dean is also available to train your horse to cart if required.
