Our Favorite Things - 2020 version

Last year, I wrote a post regarding my favorite carriage driving items. This year we have some new items that I would have a hard time living without.

“Level” Shafts?

“Level” Shafts?

You may have heard that the shafts on your two-wheeled cart should be level with the ground. The correct answer to that perception is “maybe”. It really depends on a number of factors with the cart.  Shafts parallel to the ground is a bit of a misnomer by beginning drivers.

Long Lining or Ground Driving?

Long Lining or Ground Driving?

A lot of new drivers are under the impression that a major step in training the driving horse is ground driving, walking behind the horse like you were in a vehicle, but without the vehicle attached. We do more what I refer to as “long lining” which is basically staying in the center of the arena while the horse goes around.

The Helmet Fascinator

The Helmet Fascinator

Youth have to wear an approved helmet at all times when on the show grounds. When we had a cute teenage girl showing with our phaeton cart, her helmet needed something that made it look a little more feminine and elegant besides just the helmet cover.
