With three phases to perfect–dressage, marathon and cones–and often multiple horses to guide at one time, eventing’s sister sport of combined driving is equal parts elegance, accuracy, and a little bit of crazy (just how we like it!).
Over the weekend Australian Boyd Exell, #1 on the FEI Four-In-Hand Top Driver rankings, drove to his eighth FEI World Cup™ Driving Final victory in Bordeaux. Check out the adrenaline pumping highlights of the top three finishers as they make seemingly impossible hairpin turns, fly through gates at full speed and send footing flying as they skid around corners.
