Combined driving is carriage driving's answer to eventing. It is comprised of three
sections: dressage, the marathon (including roads and tracks and obstacles (in lieu
of jumps!)) and cones (the equivalent of showjumping)...
Show driving events, often termed harness classes, can be seen at most agricultural
shows including Royal Shows and are often divided into light and heavy horse sections...
A Pleasure drive can be simply a drive down a country lane, rail trails, a picnic
or campfire shared with like minded company held on one day, a weekend or even for
a week in public reserves or private property...
The object of the dressage test is to judge the freedom, regularity of pace, harmony,
impulsion, suppleness, lightness, ease of movement and correct bending of horses
and ponies on the move...
