Rob writes: "Attending the Sparrow Draft Horse
School sponsored by Bundoran Farm and Lazy K Farms in 1998
broadened my vision and improved my skills. This week of instruction
has been one of the best training investments I have made.
I recommend it to anyone; expert or novice. Prior to attending
the school, I had been driving a team for over a year.
"Bundoran Farm has open pastures that are
a very forgiving place to learn to drive a 4-horse hitch and
to experience driving a 6-up hitch. During the week of instruction,
we moved to the roads and hilly trails on the farm which gave
all the students the opportunity to practice controlling the
hitch and wagon while descending, ascending, and turning.
As I saw more experienced drivers backing I was challenged
to improve my own skills.
