Friday Feature: Driving

This week’s letter is D. If you missed last week’s Friday Feature, take a look at Career Counselling (Equine).

Someone who has the skill of driving horses may be able to turn this into an income earner a few different ways.  Perhaps it’s through providing carriage driving services to the public, selling horses that have been started under harness or maybe through charging a fee to start horses in harness or via racing horses as is done with trotting and pacing.  I’m sure there are more options!

A Horse in Harness

Someone who is interested in utilising their driving related skills to generate income may need to:

  • Have the ability to start driving horses under the use of lunge lines
  • Be involved in the carriage driving competition circuit to build up awareness of one’s skills and develop contacts
  • Have horses trained in harness
  • Have carriages that can be used with driving horses
  • Gain a driving license to race
  • Gain local council permission to run a carriage driving business on the streets

If you have an interest in working with horses in harness, but don’t yet have the skills to run your own business, consider:

  • Contacting local businesses where you could gain work experience or employment
  • Reading as much as you can on the subject
  • Attending events that would put you in touch with those who are already established in the industry (sales, races, competitions)

For posts that relate to this area of work on Equus-Blog, take a look at:

“If one induces the horse to assume that carriage which it would adopt of its own accord when displaying its beauty, then one directs the horse to appear joyous and magnificent, proud and remarkable for having been ridden.” – Xenophon
