Customer testimonials

Rowena is a gifted teacher of horses and people. I have been a very fortunate pupil of hers when I have visited the Wales from Australia. I have driven all the pony team in various combinations and was lucky to compete with them in pairs. Rowena has endless patience and delivers clear messages throughout the lessons. She has boundless and infectious enthusiasm. The ponies are well trained and responsive, there is equipment for practice in all facets of driving. A driver of any age or capability will improve under her guidance.

Rowena has been wonderful in helping me along my carriage driving route. Very knowledgeable, takes time to understand what is best to progress. Has been helping me produce my pony in driving. We have both learnt so much and the enjoyment I get from driving is superb. My pony is becoming a little star to drive and Rowena is always on hand to help.

Samantha Jenner

Rowena is an exceptional teacher and has the unique talent of taking a task and breaking it down into a language taylored to the individual so they can understand and she constantly invents new ways to help the student understand and achieve what is being asked, be this by using different ways of explaining it or inventing exercises to help illustrate it. Rowena is quick to size up your strengths and use them to help you with things you might find a challenge. I have learnt a great deal in the few months I have been driving with South Wales Carriage Driving Centre and I always look forward to my next visit and what challenges I will encounter and the knowledge I will gain from driving and just generally being around and observing what is going on. The horses are all lovely ,the staff are amazing and always a friendly greeting from the dogs.

Gail Smith

Rowena Moyse is an excellent coach who inspires students to achieve more than they thought possible. She has a natural empathy with the animals and a laid back approach to teaching carriage driving backed up with many years of expertise in top level competition. Thoroughly recommended.

Alan hodges

I have had three lessons and an assessment with Rowena, during breaks in lockdown, both with my own pony, the Pony of a great friend and with Minstrel, one of the world championship standard driving ponies that are kept and trained at South Wales Carriage Driving Centre. Right from the word go Rowena has a knack of connecting with both pony and driver. Her wealth of experience both as a top level competitor and coach enable her to intuitively get the best out of each combination. Lessons are collaborative, enabling the learner to express their aims/ dreams and for Rowena to suggest areas to work on to achieve those aims. Each step is clearly explained and built upon, discussing how it feels as a driver and what it looks like as a judge. I particularly like the “small steps” approach to both lessons and homework. I have left each session feeling that progress has been made and I know what to work on next, both proof of Rowena’s skill as a coach and mentor.
