Produced as a stable-mate to the author's hugely successful Breaking a Horse to Harness, this invaluable book uses the same step-by-step format to help the novice whip learn the art of driving. Sallie Walrond's concise, easy-to-follow text is complemented by numerous photographs specially taken for the book by equestrian photographer Anthony Reynolds and delightful line drawings by the late Anne Grahame Johnstone. Driving is one branch of equestrianism where the ability to ride is not a necessity. Therefore many non-riders can also enjoy driving as a pleasurable pastime or a competitive sport. Driving a Harness Horse leads the way.

Driving Horses shows you how to get the most out of your horse's power while establishing a relationship of confidence and trust. Learn how to hitch your horse to an implement, how to maintain correct lateral and longitudinal alignment, how to use various harness and collars, and more. Step-by-step colour photos show you how to accomplish all these tasks quickly and efficiently. Driving Horses is an indispensable how-to guide for first-time and seasoned horse owners and drivers alike - whether you have one horse or six, and whether you're using them to plow a field or pull a pleasure cart.

Originally published in 1884, this extremely scarce early work on driving horses is both expensive and hard to find in its first edition. This excellent little book was written in an era when "handling the ribbons" was not only a pleasurable pastime but was almost the sole means of transport - hence any hints on making driving simpler, and consequently, safer, were of inestimable value. In view of the steadily growing interest in this pastime and the constant demand for information on harnessing and driving, this book will prove of great value with its detailed wisdom aimed at both tyro and expert. The book consists of two hundred and twelve pages divided into twelve Comprehensive Chapters, each illustrated with explanatory line drawings: Harness. Driving-Single Harness. Driving-Double Harness. Curricle and Cape Cart. Driving Four Horses-Position of Coachman. Four Horses-The Reins. Four in Hand. The Whip. Starting. Pulling Up. Turning. Useful Hints. Tandem Driving. Tandem Harness. Breaking to Harness. Etc. This is a fascinating read for any driving enthusiast or historian of this mode of transport, but also contains much information and advice that is still extremely useful and practical today. Many of the early equestrian titles, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

The focal point of interest in this fascinating and beautiful book by one of the leading authorities in his field is the art of driving for pleasure and the relationship between man, the carriage, and the driving horse. It begins by investigating the emergence of the elegant carriage in Italy and then describes the development of the art of driving in 17th and 18th century France. It follows the development of the perfection of driving for pleasure in England and Germany during the 19th and 20th centuries, commencing with the modern sport of competitive driving as we know it today. Various driving techniques are discussed, as are the different styles of harness and methods of harnessing up in Europe, and includes the development of the driving bit and the special rein systems. Traditional driving as it is known today and the various questions as to how to turnout correctly—which carriage suits, which type of horse, and on what occasion—are dealt with in the last chapter of this book which provides solid answers.
