Welcome to 3 Hats!

Our Goal

Our goal is to work in conjunction with Carriage Association of America to provide the very best training of horses, mules and drivers to the highest standards of safety and knowledge.  

Our Methods

Safe practices are the foundation of our carriage driving instruction and carriage horse and mule training. Because we have experience in starting draft horses and mules, fine harness, pleasure driving, CDE, commercial carriage work, and for 21 years have driven the stagecoach and 4-in-hand team for Wells Fargo Bank, we provide a source for nearly every driver to learn to drive or hone his craft. 

Three Hats Training Center is a recognized CAA Evaluation Center and our instructors are CAA Certified

We carry a quality line of carriage driving harness, whips, and bits, as well as several used carriages and carts. 

We Believe...

We believe carriage driving in all of its myriad forms is making a resurgence. In the day, nearly everyone had driven a horse or mule or at least had ridden in a carriage and surely had ridden a horse and was exposed to horses on a daily basis. Today, many new drivers come to us without any prior horse experience. By providing a center for training horses and drivers, we have a unique opportunity to educate partnerships to very high standards and help those that are a little more experienced to enjoy safe, smart carriage driving.
