The Essential Guide to Carriage Driving

Robyn Cuffey and Jaye-Allison Winkel

Seeing the need for a truly practical guide to carriage driving, the authors combined their over thirty years' of driving experience in the writing of The Essential Guide to Carriage Driving. Generously illustrated with over 350 photographs and diagrams and covering topics ranging from the selection and fitting of harness and vehicle to preparing for competition and driving multiples, this book is sure to become an indispensable resource.

Robyn Cuffey is an international clinician specializing in retraining Standardbred horses. She is co-author of Retraining the Harness Racehorse. Cuffey began carriage driving twenty years ago and in this time she has driven for recreation and for competition in combined driving, pleasure showing and competitive driving. She has trained and driven horses and ponies for single driving and pairs. Knowing that too many people are lucky to "survive" their first carriage driving experiences with ill-fitting and marginally safe equipment and inappropriate horses and vehicles, helping others get a safe start in carriage driving is a primary goal for Cuffey. As an instructor and trainer at her Buxton,
Maine farm, Cuffey fields questions about carriage driving almost daily. This book was written in response to this interest from students and fellow horse owners.

Jaye-Allison Winkel is the listowner of "CD-L, the Carriage Driving List", an Internet discussion group dedicated to the subject of carriage driving, since its inception in 1996. She is also the publisher of CarriageDriving.net, a carriage driving "webzine" on the World Wide Web. An avid horsewoman, she learned to drive ten years ago and the sport has been her passion since that time. Winkel lives in
Waterboro, Maine, with her husband and four young sons.
