Experience the Thrill of Driving Horses!
 Enjoy a Learning Vacation!

Plan your vacation time, take driving lessons and discover Montana!

   It is important to learn some basics of driving horses so you can understand what the driven horse needs and expects from you. With the proper skills you can develop better communication with your horses, be more comfortable with the lines or reins, be a confident, competent and a safer driver. Safety is paramount.
  We have several carriages, carts and wagons for sale and we order harness to suit your individual needs. You may click on Carriages & Wagons
 also see Driving Accessories include safety helmets and vests.

 

Professional training is a wise investment in your safety and future.

  Before you buy horses, equipment or harness and before you attempt to drive your horses PLEASE seek professional assistance. Learn to drive before you risk yourself, your family and your horses. Many of our students have come to us with a horse, harness and vehicle only to learn nothing fits right or they bought something not suitable. Learn about the sport of driving before you waste you money!
Coaching drivers.
4-up We love to work with people who are driving horses now but want to improve their skills to get the most from their horses in a confident and relaxed state.
  Commercial carriage drivers may be surprised at what there is to learn about driving their horses and to be better prepared if or when things go wrong.
  In Combined Driving Events we can often improve your scores for the Marathon and Cones phases when you learn what your horse needs from you.
 Here is a photo of Alex driving a team of four horses.  This is the third day out playing in the flooding waters up the road. Two of these horse sold to Robert Smith in CA. Congratulations, you have bought two of our favorites!

 

 There are always risks involved when you work with horses, but what you can learn at The Fraser School of Driving may lessen the risks to you, your family, horses and equipment. Also offered are Safety Clinics  for Commercial Carriage, Wagon and Sleigh ride businesses. Drive Safe!
 
   We have a variety of horses we may use for driving lessons. You are welcome to bring your own horses for your lessons if they are already trained to drive. See Rates.
   If you are looking for that special horse we have some wonderful driving horses for sale and we order-buy horses for people who want something we don't already have. We custom order Harness depending on your horses, vehicle and what type of driving you want to do.

For 2013 we will continue to offer choice of either offer below to anyone buying our horses in stock.

Offer 1.) We know it is expensive to transport horses for out of state buyers, so we are offering to help with shipping costs up to $500 on selected horses.

Offer 2.) All our horses are awesome to drive, but even the best horse needs to feel confident in the driver, so we will offer up to six hours of driving lessons or coaching free to anyone buying horses from us. If you are not sure which horse to buy, you are welcome to try any of our horses here at home. If we don't feel you are the right match for a horse we reserve the right to refuse a sale. We care as much about our horses as we do our buyers.
