Learning to Drive a horse and Carriage
From one-to-one lessons to online courses, Marc calmly and thoughtfully teaches the traditional skill of driving a horse and carriage. Once you start carriage driving you open up this incredible world of horsemanship on an entirely different level. Marc teaches traditional coachman style just like he did when he worked at The Royal Mews, Buckingham Palace.
Training Horses to Drive
Marc is fully insured and experienced to train horses into harness. We have a selection of carriages, agricultural training equipment and harness to get horses used to driving. All is done with the safety of the horses and drivers in mind. Training livery is available at our HQ near Hay-on-Wye, Wales. See here for more details.
Teaching Actors Riding and Driving
Riding a horse or driving a cart as an actor on set is very different to everyday riding, which much more to consider and many more distractions for the horses, just being around horses on set may feel a little more daunting that usual. Don’t worry, that’s where a little bit of prep before hand, either in person or online, can really help. Marc offers horse riding and carriage driving lessons specifically for actors – see here for more details.
