Q: I have a 12-year-old son that wants to compete. In breed restricted classes, he can drive alone. What is the rule for Carriage Driving?
A: Drivers who are 14 years old have the option in single-horse turnout to drive without a passenger or groom. Drivers below 14 must be accompanied by an adult who is knowledgeable and capable of rendering assistance.

Q: I have won three blue ribbons in fairly large classes recently and have a new horse which is a stallion. Are there any limitations showing stallions in Carriage Pleasure Driving?
A: You would be eligible for limit class, if offered. If you enter as a limit driver, you would not be able to show the stallion. Maiden/Novice/Limit drivers are ineligible to compete stallions. (Note: Classes of less than three entries do not affect the driver or horse status).
