Carriage Driving Experience

£175 per person (refreshments included)

A fantastic opportunity to learn from our experienced Horse Operations Team and discover the basics of how to drive horses.

Whether you are a novice or are experienced with horses, you will learn about the skill of driving a horse and carriage. Each session will fit into the daily work pattern of the Horse Operations Team, and is dependent on site events and seasonality. Sessions can be tailored to individual requirements, where appropriate.

Thank you for a fantastic day we loved every minute of our driving experience. The staff at the stables couldn’t have been more helpful, we all have our own horses but this was a new experience for us.

The experience will be “hands-on” and participants will require safety shoes or boots. A costume will be provided.
