    Default What is "Trained to ride T.S.S." ??

    I'm flipping through an auction catalog and seeing many horses listed as "Trained to ride T.S.S." or "Anybody can drive, broke single/double, tss."

    I've never seen that before! I can't seem to connect it to any breed or discipline (they range QH, Haflinger, Morgan, etc types...trail, some western pleasure, some speed horses, and driving). I can't come up with any logical guess either! Can anyone enlighten me?

    ... O.o .... o.O

    Huh. Search me. "Trained Side Saddle?" That seems unlikely. I've never seen that in an ad....Now I'm curious, too!

    I found a reference to Traffic Survival School... makes sense as regards a well-trained driving horse.

    Several of the Standardbreds say "Traffic safe & sound." Maybe "TSS" is an abbreviation for that?

    Well, who is Justin Plank? All of the horses for whom "T.S.S." was mentioned in the link are currently owned by Justin Plank.

    Maybe it's the equine version of shoot, shovel and shut up...only it's Throw, shuffle and shut up.

    Yeah. I'd assume it's Traffic Safe and Sound too. Maybe there is a word limit or something, so he wanted to abbreviate..
