    "Excellent experience and tuition all top class. Stephanie is very patient! Will definitely be back." E Kennings

    Learning to carriage

    drive is a wonderful experience.  It’s good fun to learn and gives you a fantastic sense of well-being when you connect with the horses.


    No previous experience of horses is necessary.  Non-riders often pick up the art of carriage driving more quickly than experienced horse riders.

    Our aim is to provide training in an enjoyable, safe way to produce carriage drivers who respect equines, carriage drive with courtesy to road users and have a passion for the sport. Photos courtesy of Hazel Woodbridge.

    "Had a great time.  Love the horses, a really good experience".   L Huggins

    Our approach to handling horses is the ‘natural horsemanship’ way.  Body language and voice are used to communicate and build trust.  A good carriage driving horse will frequently flick an ear back to listen to you.   We also show you how to listen to what the carriage horses are telling you in return!

    "Delightful experience.  Excellent calm horse with Danny and very clear instructions all the time.  Great fun!"  A Wheeler

    Based near 'Royal' Tetbury at the gateway to the Cotswolds, we are one hour and twenty minutes from London by train to the nearest train station (Kemble, 8 miles away).  Located at Long Newnton by the Wiltshire ~ Gloucestershire border, we are approximately 45 minutes drive from Bristol, Bath, Swindon, Cheltenham and Gloucester and an hour from Oxford and Reading.
