The term 'Sports Driving' is relatively new in the field of equestrian sports. This book demystifies the 'myths' of competitive carriage driving. It contains advice on acquiring the right pony and equipment, schooling to achieve results and how to turn out yourself and your pony at a National Championship. The author details all three phases of competition with tips on achieving flow and bend in dressage, speed in the marathon and accuracy in cones. "Sports Driving" gives a complete picture of the sport from starting flags to finish.

Disability coach Amanda Saville travelled throughout the country with her ‘Chariots of Fire’ display team, regularly competing in national championships, and in 1999 she set up the Chariots of Fire driving centre — a driving club specialised in subsidised classes for people with learning or physical disabilities. She won many driving titles and was the National Indoor Champion of 2004/5 and Scottish Indoor Champion of 2003/04, 2004/05 and 2005/06. She sadly lost her battle with cancer in 2016.
