Both of us took lessons and showed, when available. Me more than him. Some people don’t feel the need to show at every possible opportunity. Imagine that.
Because I have no agenda for driving, I fail to get in my own way. I do it for fun. At this point, I show in a cart better than I do in a saddle. Seriously. The peanut gallery has repeated sent me into the ring with the exhortation to ride like I drive.
I drove in 8 shows; Greg in 5. Three big shows; two for Greg. In that time, I encountered one non-Stepping Stone competitor. I don’t understand why more people don’t drive. It’s a hoot, the horses love it, & most Saddlebreds are taught to drive, at least a little, as part of their training.
In 2015, we piddled with the idea [Show Report]. In 2016, Combined Driving took off for us.
Greg took his first lesson.

Greg competed twice.

We did so much driving that I instituted Driving Thursdays on the blog.
Go Team Walcott!
