Evaluation / Consultation »


In learning to evaluate a carriage driving horse’s potential, you need an understanding of the many factors that should be considered. Education is key to making the right choices when looking for that new animal to put behind you’re carriage of choice.  Two main factors that come to mind are conformation and disposition.   The confirmation should satisfy the goals of the potential buyer.  The disposition should match the character of the driver.  Depending on your own personal goals in the carriage driving world this could guide you on how much emphasis you might consider from one to the other or both.  If you already have equipment choosing a new animal that fits the existing equipment is imperative.
