  1. That looks like so much fun to watch! I wouldn’t want to be the driver. I’ve always loved to look at beautiful horses and pet them but have a fear of riding. Only been on one a few times.

    • Having been a rider, it’s not the fear of riding, it’s the fear of the ground coming up at you real fast! Driving is probably the safest…just not the way these guys do it. πŸ˜‰

  2. I want to learn to drive so badly. Of course I just want to go for a leisurely drive. I am not very competitive. But, I would like to see a driving event sometime. More people around our part of Kansas is more into riding. Although I am sure there are some who do drive and can harness break. They are just hard to find.

    • I’m surprised that Kansas wouldn’t have Driving. There are Driving associations and schools everywhere in the US! I’ll have to check. If I find something I’ll let you know.

      • Thank you I would appreciate it. I have checked online but I always come up with race cars. I definitely don’t want to drive one of those! I have found some information on driving, but they are in other states that are quite a ways away from her. I have found books on harness breaking and teaching to drive. They are interesting, but I am a hands on with help person. I don’t always comprehend when I read instructions. I learn faster when actually doing it. It is on my bucket list. Lol. There used to be people around that did drive, but they are too old now or passed on. I’ll learn one day.

      • I put an email in, to the association and a number of drivers that are International. So as soon as I hear I’ll pass it on. The 4 horse team I featured the other day, lives here, but spends his winters on tour in the US. I’ll speak to him as well, next time I see him. πŸ™‚

      • Oh you are such a kind man. Thank you. Maybe one of our get aways, which aren’t too often, we can go to a driving competition. Hubby is not as into horses as I am, but he does like to look at them and watch them in action now and then. I will even catch him petting mine now and then.

      • Oooh! Thank you for that thought. I have not been to Canada since I was a baby. At least my Mom said I was at Niagra Falls when I was a baby. Lol, needless to say I don’t remember! Are you talking next June as next month or June 2015? Just to be clear.

      • Next June 2015! If you time it right you get 2 big events on back to back weekends. The CCI 3*** It’s a 3 day event, dressage, cross country, and show jumping. Then the following week is the big Driving event. They are both Internationals, so you get some of the best in the world. πŸ™‚

    • LOL The other horses did have fun in the mud. I also think there was a lineup at the dry cleaners. I hope to post all the pictures in a day of two. There were some amazing outfits.
