Friesian Driving Experiences


The Friesian Driving Experience is run by Tracey Alexander and aimed at anyone with an interest in having a go at carriage driving with one of our Friesian horses. No prior driving experience is required as full instruction will be given before and during the drive.


Your time will include:


  • An introduction to the horse you will be driving
  • Time on the ground getting to know your horse and grooming them to prepare them for work
  • Explanation of the driving harness and how to fit it to the horse correctly
  • Demonstration on our 'rein machine' how to hold the driving reins and use them effectively
  • Explanation about the carriage and how to safely hitch the horse to the carriage
  • A drive round our quiet country lanes where you will have the opportunity to take the reins and drive yourself for up to an hour under Tracey's guidance

We take a maximum of 2 people on a Driving Experience


PEAK TIMES: May to end of September
