    Default Driving Clinic In Florida For New Drivers

    I came across this information on the CD-L for new drivers and those interested in learning to drive equines. Might be something to put on your Calendar for the new year.

    For many years, members of the Florida Whips have teamed with Santa Fe
    College to offer an inexpensive short course in teaching the newby and
    his/her horse to drive. Two days of intensive seminar, demonstration, and
    hands-on practice covering starting the horse to harness and carriage the
    nomenclature and application of various types of harness and two and four
    wheel vehicles, and techniques of harnessing, reinsmanship, and driving
    under supervision. The class is given at the Univ of Florida IFAS Horse
    Teaching Unit in Gainesville on February 9th & 10th

    It is suggested to members of this CD-L who may have friends visiting in
    this area, that you could encourage them to join our ranks of carriage
    aficionados by joining this class, or if you yourselves are in the area and
    would like to sharpen up your basic skills, this is a fun and inexpensive
    way of doing it.

    If interested contact us for more details and specifics and ways to enroll
    through the college. E-mail is the most efficient.

    I took that course a couple of years ago. It was very good and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in learning to drive.
