What a Day!

Yesterday we had 3 horse drawn funerals  in one day; a black hearse with team of blacks, a white hearse with team of greys and another black hearse with a pair of blacks. Karen even managed to drive the two team funerals herself.  It was a logistics nightmare but we managed to turn out 3 hearses, 10 horses and 5 horse boxes!

Catton Horse Driving Trials

Karen came 2nd at Catton Horse Driving Trials at the weekend and so sadly will not be part of the team going to the pony world championships.  She did, however, take new horse, Wilaan, in her horse team for experience and was delighted that she took everything in her stride.  Including when a loose horse hurtled into her portable stabling and joined her for a few minutes until rescued by the groom!  For results see website.

Road Driving Certificate for Commercial Operators

Karen has been awarded the British Driving Society Road Driving Certificate for Commercial Operators of Horse Drawn Vehicles for a team of horses, as well as a pair, and has applied for membership of the Professional Carriage Masters Association for her Horse Drawn Hearse business.

Catton Horse Driving Trials

Karen will be going to Catton Horse Driving Trials on Thursday.  She will be driving the pony team, but will also take her own team to give the new young horse, Wilaan, a taste of the sight and sound of a driving trial.  Results will be posted on her website as soon as possible.
