Carriage driving usually involves two- or four-wheeled carriages being pulled by a single horse, a tandem or four-in-hand team. Competitions can be for the fastest horse and carriage to complete a predetermined course, or based on aesthetic factors and subjective scoring based on the performance of the horse and driver.
