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.

Learn to Drive a horse and Carriage in Person

In One-to-one lessons, 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.
