Tuesday Tips: Do-It-Yourself Driving Course
We love driving our horses, both as a cross-training exercise (it’s great lateral training for dressage horses in particular), and as an awesome way to get new people interested in horses.
Recently, we had the chance to go to a convention of carriage horses at a local park and enjoyed the opportunity to practice the finer points of our steering by moving through an obstacle course of cones. The small rubber cones are especially good for this because they can be run over without doing damage to the wheels or the cone itself, and they’re easy to move and store.
One of the instructors suggested using frisbees for a DIY course at home–what a great idea! Frisbees are of course, easier to find, just as durable, and simpler to store.
