About Carriage Pleasure Driving
An Open Carriage Pleasure Driving competition is open to all breeds of horses and
ponies. Classes may be offered in divisions based on the configuration of the
turnout (i.e. Single, Pair, Tandem, Unicorn, and Four-in-Hand); the size of the
animal (horse or pony); age or gender of the driver; or number of ribbons won by
the horse or driver. Open Carriage Pleasure Driving classes may also be offered
in conjunction with breedrestricted classes at a breed or multi-breed competition.
The rules for these classes will be found in the Carriage Pleasure Driving section
of the USEF Rule Book. The division will be unrated (‘N’) when these classes are
offered as "open to all breeds."
