Just starting out on their new adventure into the world of carriage driving
Where do I begin, I cannot express how grateful and happy I am with the service from Rowena & Peter, I felt like my pony did a stars in your eyes transformation, in goes an impatient and manner less piggy pony and out of the smoke comes an amazing great pony doing it all. giving me the convidence to take the reins once more, by the time we left we did the cones and had a go at the XC track, even had a go at the stressage with Peter’s great commentary skills we finished it, as I was a complete nervous wreck I can only explain Peter as having the David Attenborough vibes which for some1 like me is great, also I have to say how laid back and non judgemental these guys are. Being a larger lady with a 12hh pony I was nervous at peoples reactions, but never once was I made to feel uncomfortable in any which way. I cannot recommend these guys enough changed our lifes I can’t wait to come back and enjoy the club and show. Thank you guys from Sarah & Nookie xx
These three greys, Paddy and Cass in the wheel, with Phantom in the lead, excelled themselves yesterday. With three days of practice and not knowing how they would take to it. I had a great support team of Byron and Ashleigh ,along with our own Steph and Kaylie, and of course Peter. It was an 8mile total trip but as they were new to this combination we just put the lead horse in front for the mile or 2 long hill. And Phantom being fresh gave the other two the help they needed to keep a steady trot going all the way. What superb horses all 3 of them, a special pat for Phantom taking the lead so well
When you have three white horses, you just have to try unicorn! Paddy and Cass in the wheel, with Phantom in the lead.
Delighted to help Rhiannon to put her mares into the carriage as a pair for the first time. They behaved very well. A credit to the time she has spent training them herself. After a little bit of time longreining them as a pair and then adjusting the harness and fittings they drove very well together.
Just came across this picture of a pair I was training a couple of years ago, they really could do the extended trot
Really pleased with these two today, both can be a bit of a hand full at times but just drove quite nicely together.

Finally getting to drive one of my youngsters with Sam, very pleased with how he’s going, picking up in confidence every day.
