Looking Back, Driving 2016
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!
