Driving Digest Magazineis the only independent magazine in North America devoted to carriage driving.  Our tag-line is “carriage driving for every equine,” which means we cover not only driving horses and ponies, but also donkeys, mules, drafts and minis. It is published bi-monthly (6 times per year). 

At Driving Digest, our goal is to provide informative and educational content for anyone interested in driving any kind of equine.  All breeds are represented as well.  Our readers range from the backyard driver to those who aspire to compete internationally, and even World Champions and everyone in between.

Driving Digest also sponsors our coffee and donuts! Please thank Ann Pringle when you see her.

Hoosier Horse Park, IN

Pics of You-John will work with you from the beginning to make sure that we cover the events to the exhibitor's and event management's satisfaction. Our number one goal is to provide memories for our customer and document their special day.

Immediately after the event, we post the event photos to our store front.Please allow one week for processing digital download orders, although in most cases we try to get those out within 2-3 days. Please allow 3 weeks for print orders and 6 weeks for canvas orders.

Sometimes things just get away from you, that's why we are here to help. Perhaps you purchased a horse and a google search pulled up our site with photos from his early career. Or maybe time just slipped away from you. Our archival site can help.
