    Default Cool photo

    I'm not in the Driving discipline, but I found this photo on Pinterest (note, not my pinterest account) and thought I'd share it! I think it's pretty cool..

    Wow. Way cool!!!

    I am nearer to 50 than 40 and have only just started driving. I am the youngest driver of all the people I know!!! One guy, who is probably in his 70s and has Parkinsons, told me that he used to event (advanced) and driving is the best way to get that same buzz. I'll bet this driver had an adrenelin rush for that obstacle!

    This summer I was watching Aachen live on line & I got bored with the dressage (gasp--don't rat me out) & started watching the four in hand driving competition. It really was, hands down, the most exciting horse event I have seen, including racing & eventing. just watching gave me the chills.

    I kept talking about it to the point that I think even my horsie friends got sick of it.

    OP: thanks, LOVE this pic.

    You should try hanging on the back of the carriage full tilt, while keeping the four wheels down on the ground. IT IS AWESOME! I swear grooms/navigators are just junkies looking for a fix!

    Awesome, I'm glad you and everyone like it! I especially love it because they are ponies I would like to see this round? Course? Sorry, don't know the proper term.

    The horsemanship in driving is incredible.

    Now, that's combined driving! Presentation, dressage, cross country, cones, and jumping - lol. The splash in the following frames must have been awesome.
