At the 2013 Show Driving Championships

I haven't posted for months, where did 2013 go ?

The ponies have been going well, we have attended several events and had a great time.

Unfortunatley we were eliminated at the 2013 NSW CDE Championships as I had not adjusted the axle width of the carriage for the cones course, an incredibly stupid mistake.

We had a great time at the 2013 show driving championships, despite the incredible heat. Nothing like driving in a tweed suit and woollen lap rug in 30 degree heat with sweat pouring down your back.

My New Years Resolution for 2014 is to get qualified as a carriage driving instructor. I completed the course in 2008, but did not submit my final assessment as I had personal issues that meant I would not be able to teach. But now my circumstances have changed so I am keen to pursue teaching again.

I have my first student lined up, she bought a 'come and drive a team' experience at our driving club Christmas Raffle.
