Competition Driving on a Shoestring

The author took up driving when severe hip and back problems made it impossible for her to continue riding. She discovered competitive driving when invited to help at an event and has been an enthusiastic competitor ever since. This book tells readers how to get into the sport with limited funds - from selecting a suitable horse or pony, vehicle and harness; via schooling, fitness, and professional presentation; to the event itself; the dressage, marathon and cone-driving phases. Written in a conversational style, interspersed with anecdotes from the author's own personal experience, this book will be welcomed by anyone who has ever contemplated competitive driving.
