Having a runaway when you’re carriage driving can be one of the scariest experiences you can have. The first step is prevention, but when that fails…
Emergency preparedness is the difference between a scary moment and outright disaster. Learn what to do in difficult circumstances when nothing went as planned.
You’ll also learn what to do if there is a carriage turnover or a horse goes down.
Oh ya, there will be stories too. I’ll tell you about some of my most harrowing moments, and how I handled them.

This is a great class. Full of exactly the information I needed. I had just experienced my first “incident” of a runaway. Just like Andy says, momentarly, my horse had no brain. This is NOT a young horse, but a very road safe older riding horse (34 yrs old and still working) She was green broke as a 3 yr old, but never driven. I’ve started driving her about 3 months ago. On this day, she just decided that some calves running up to the fence on the road side were something she should be concerned about! Brain went out of gear and we were off to the races. I was able to get the horse under control, using my general horse knowledge, but then I doubted myself as to whether or not I handled it correctly or in the best manner. To be honest, I was afraid to go out again, just because I wanted to KNOW the best way to handle runaways. This class told me exactly how to handle the situation. Andy does a fantastic job of covering all the bases. Thankfully, according to Andy, I did pretty good after all, in handling my situation. He gave me the confidence to head out again, but this time, better equipped. Yes, we did go right out again, after I watched the video, with success Andy, thank you sooo much! Now I’m going to buy the class on How to drive through the spook so I am better prepared.

This is a fantastic class. I’ve had a few close calls, but never quite a runaway. I’ve always wondered what I would do if I did. Now I know what I’d do.
Andy’s teaching is really easy to follow. Everything is laid out so that it makes perfect sense.
I think that anyone who drives horses, or is thinking about driving horses should take this class.
