Carriage Driving
Heike Bean and Sarah Blanchard
Howell Book House, 2004
ISBN 0764572997

"Carriage Driving : A Logical Approach Through Dressage Training" was the first book I bought when I started getting interested in driving, before I even started taking lessons. It is an excellent book, and is still one of my favorite driving books. Anyone starting out in driving should get this book, and I'm sure even seasoned whips would get a lot out of it. More >>

Driving Do's and Don'ts
Sallie Walrond
The Kenilworth Press Limited, 1996
ISBN 187208284x

This is one of those handy little "Threshold" picture books. I bought it because it shows common mistakes made in, among other things, fitting the harness and in hitching. I found that when I was first starting driving, if I didn't have my instructor around and I was unsure about certain items of hitching I could refer to this quick little picture book, and I like it for that.
