The full experience of driving a horse and carriage. Great gift experience or excellent entertainment for yourself! In this 2 – 3 hour morning/afternoon, you will be greeted by Marc before getting to long-line one of our driving horses to get a feel for the voice commands and theory behind driving. We will then go through with you all the safety checks and parts to the carriage that you need for a safe journey, as well as harnessing up a single and a pair of horses. You’ll then help to put to, before driving through the Welsh and Herefordshire Countryside. If you would like to bring along a friend to the morning/afternoon, a second person can accompany you at no extra cost.
