Thursday Driving Lessons Begin

A primary goal is for our participants to learn to drive a horse as independently as possible.

Many of the benefits of carriage driving are similar to riding and include:
• Improving posture and balance
• Developing self-esteem and confidence
• Stimulating communication
• And fostering self-reliance by providing a sense of freedom.

Our four-wheeled carriage is designed so that drivers may remain in their wheelchairs if necessary. We also use a two-wheeled cart for drivers who can mount and support themselves with minimal assistance.

Throughout the lesson, our certified instructor sits alongside the participant with a second set of reins. Trained volunteers assist the participant as needed, offering encouragement and support.
