"Make the Most of Carriage Driving" is a delightful introduction to driving in its various forms. The authors combine to provide a wealth of knowledge coupled with a bubbling enthusiasm for all sporting and recreational aspects of driving and for the animals who play an essential role in it. After recounting the history of carriage driving and the evolution of the related sports, the book offers advice on retraining an animal to go in harness and on choosing and maintaining a suitable vehicle and equipment. Correct, safe procedures for putting to and taking out are discussed, and there is detailed advice on how to drive in single harness, followed by descriptions of the principles of driving pairs, tandem and teams. The section on driving in the show ring covers the judge's view-point; types of class, turnout and show ring procedure and also offers practical guidelines as to the best methods of transporting animals and vehicles to and from the showground. In keeping with the authors' obvious love of the animals involved, the book even offers advice on choosing and training a coaching dog to complete the ensemble. "Make the Most of Carriage Driving" offers a colourful blend of history, sound technical advice and encouragement, making it essential reading for any aspiring Whip, or indeed, for anyone who is stirred by the sight and sound of horses in harness.
