Carriage driving lessons can be tailored to your needs, so if you’d like an hour lesson with your own horse or pony or one of our superb ponies that would be £55 per hour.

Our most popular package is a half day experience which includes a carriage driving lesson and a carriage ride out on a scenic local drive with a pair of horses driven by one of Peter, Steph or Rowena this is £180 for up to 2 people together.

Short courses and full days on request tailored to your individual needs. There are great places to stay locally or we have our own static caravan to enjoy a holiday on Gower while learning about carriage driving.

Customer Testimonials

I’ve just got home from an amazing day at Rowena’s, thank you so much Rowena for making the day so much fun and explaining everything so well, I’m off to make notes now before I forget anything!

Fiona Grigg

Absolutely fabulous carriage taster session with the most patient and good-humoured driver and horse combo – Peter and Bwrw were such fun. Their kindness for three total novices, aged between 80s and just into double figures was wonderful; instructions were clear, we felt encouraged and motivated to try harder on each new corner and obstacle! We have recommended Rowena’s carriage driving sessions to all our friends and will definitely be coming back.

Starting learning with Rowena just over a year ago. Whilst I have been around horses all of my life this is a new and exciting hobby which even the little ones are involved in. Recommend Rowena to everyone. She has the patience of a Saint and a huge amount of experience in teaching with very experienced ponies.

Very welcoming couple, teaching hands on, traditional methods that clearly work wonders. Can’t wait to return to join another workshop. i signed up for the morning – but stayed for the day!
