Carriage Driving at Lowther Show

Recently attended the Lowther Show in Cumbria – whilst it’s a country show with lots of countryside displays to watch from falconry, gundog scurries, hound show and clay shooting among others.

But one thing that took my eye was the carriage driving – in the past i had been part of a back up team to a carriage driving team with a Shetland pony – whilst they competed I was the head cook and everything else to be done behind the scenes for them!

So I could not resist watching the carriage driving at Lowther and wow if you ever get the chance to watch carriage driving its addictive – so much skill – horsemanship, timing, negotiation and amazing talent to say the least.

Prints are available to order – please contact me at for further details.
