2021 Indoor Dressage Test No. 10 (2005)

Skillful Horsemanship

Combined driving showcases the high level of skill and finesse required by the driver and the equine team. You must have excellent communication and control over your horse while horses display athletic agility, responsiveness, and discipline.

Thrilling Competition

Each phase tests different aspects of driving ability. Dressage demonstrates precision and harmony, marathon challenges speed and endurance, and the cones phase requires agility and accuracy. The diversity of challenges keeps the competition exciting and dynamic.

Inclusive Nature

Combined driving is open to a range of horse and carriage combinations, making it accessible to various breeds and sizes of horses. This inclusivity allows diverse participation and a rich mix of styles and approaches.

International Competitions

Combined driving is practiced worldwide, and numerous international competitions bring together talented drivers and their equine partners. These events offer a chance for you to showcase your skills on a global stage.

The highest expression of horse training

The NSW Branch of the Australian Carriage Driving Society has 17 clubs located throughout NSW.
Once you become a member of an ACDS affiliated club you may participate in the activities of any other affiliated club
