Pleasure and Dressage Driving
Pleasure driving may be as simple as a drive in the country, but carriage driving shows and competitions have become popular. In carriage driving shows, entries may compete in pleasure driving classes for singles, pairs, or four in hands, reinsmanship, driven dressage classes, cones speed and agility competitions, or the concours d' elegance (judged on presentation and turnout). Many entries use beautifully restored vintage carriages, and the traditions of a neat and correct turnout, good reinsmanship and good horsemanship are preserved.
Below are some photos of Peggy driving Ulie, her Haflinger mare, in Driven Dressage, Pleasure Driving and Reinsmanship classes, and pleasure driving around the farm and on the road.
