"I would recommend the driving school
to anyone (horse enthusiast or not) that likes beautiful
scenery, wide open spaces, good times, great people,
great gentle giants willing to please, some exercise,
and a great sense of accomplishment. I have owned and
ridden horses, from fox hunters, walking horses, to
cutting horses for over 40 years, and drove Welsh mountain
ponies as a child, and there is just no greater feeling
that getting out with your horses riding or driving.
It does the soul good.
"I teach basic riding on occasion, at
my farm, and I love to pass along any tips I learn about
driving and riding along to anyone that will appreciate
or listen, especially children.....I have trained and
sold three quarter horses to drive and ride, and am
training my new spotted saddle bred for riding and driving
"My driving horse, an American Cream
named Moses, who Stan Rudacil
used to shoe at Colonial Williamsburg, continues to
teach me driving and the ins and outs of carriages on
country trails, it is an adventure, and he makes me
glad I have a very smart and sensible driving horse,
because, those carriages can turn over... even when
you are careful...
"By trade, over the past 25 years, I
have been doing contract work, specializing in electronic
payments systems for banks using CHECKFREE computer
software. I sell real estate part time through Whitney
properties, specializing in farms, subdivisions & estates,
as well as, raise hay, sunflowers and black white-faced
cattle on my farm."
After visiting Bundoran for her first
school, Jahn wrote us a nice note: "The scenery, the
Belgians, your house and carriage barn make for beautiful
pictures. I feel I learned a lot about driving and harnessing
from you, and thank you for making the effort to share
your expertise with me. You are a good teacher and a
most charming host!"
