Fiona Powell has a guide on how to prepare for your first show. We take a step back in time at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum. In our Spotlight on Scotland feature, we discover logging horses and the role they play in protecting the habitat and Sanchia May explains why Scotland is the perfect place for driving. We head to France with Rosemary Neale, Valkenswaard in the Netherlands with Amy Mundell and Susan Dunne meets Vilmos Jambor, one of the driving forces behind carriage driving in Hungary.
