OK - I know CoTH is USA based! I’ve been active on here for years, but never in the Driving forum but I do trust the collective wisdom of the CoTH crowd and wonder if there’s someone that can help.
A friend and I have been hankering to learn a little about driving - a sort of taster to see if it’s something we would like to pursue as a sport/hobby and learn about. We have both spent 30 - ahem 40… - years with owning/riding/working with ridden horses and are curious about driving.
Does anyone know of anywhere in Southern Europe - Spain, Portugal, France - or anywhere sunny (we are based in the UK…) where we could go and enjoy the sun and get good quality tuition with well cared for horses? We’ve been able to find lists of excellent people in the USA and the UK - but less so mainland Europe.
Our plan would be to have a holiday and explore the basics of driving and then (assuming it’s something we want to continue with) pick up with someone local for further advice/tuition/mentoring. Like any equestrian discipline, I’m sure it’s a lifelong learning curve but for that initial toe in the water we were hoping to combine it with a much needed escape to warmer climes.
Any recommendations? Any caveats? Feel free to tell me if it’s a dumb idea!
Thank you CoTH!!
