A Wonderful Horse and Carriage Ride Through Staunton-on-Wye

We were very privileged recently to have been part of a very special day in Staunton-on-Wye, providing a horse and carriage tour of the local countryside for a very special couple.  I still think about it today and we are so glad that we could be a part of it.  A special thank you goes out to all the organisers and to Glyn Jones for recommending us and being our groom and the tour guide for the day.

I’ve attached a few images below and would like to add that it was a pleasure to meet such a lovely lady and hear about her passion for horses, carriages and driving.

How much attention do you get when driving a horse and carriage?

The answer is probably more than you ever get driving anything else – except maybe a zebra (yes, someone – not us – has put a zebra in harness!). Positive comments come from all directions and the feeling of driving a horse in a competition or simply for a jaunt down the country lanes to the pub is exhilarating and time well spent in our opinion. Driving is great for those who are no longer able (or willing!) to get onto the back of a horse but still want to enjoy achieving a new relationship with horses.  Here at The Cavalry of Heroes, Marc Lovatt teaches both people and horses to drive a carriage.
