Paul Orchard’s wonderful photographs grace the pages of Carriage Driving, he talks to Susan Dunne about capturing the perfect picture. Bob Elliott takes time to revisit classic carriage driving books. In news from Australia, Gail Bain looks at the success of the Southern Highlands Carriage Club. Liz Harcombe shares the fun had by all as they put together new combinations for a day of tandem driving. Emily Ham shares the enduring appeal of small ponies and has dates for the diary for young drivers.
