2024 Boyd Exell Queensland Clinic Wrap

Equestrian Queensland (EQ) with Driving Queensland (DrQ) and the Australian Carriage Driving Society (ACDS) hosted a Queensland Driving Clinic with the Number #1 World Champion Boyd Exell from Friday 12 to Sunday 14 January 2024 at RM Equestrian Centre in Hodgson Vale near Toowoomba!

A fabulous opportunity to learn from the mega world champion, his attention to detail being second to none!

Most sessions started with perfecting all the fitting of equipment and carriages until every horse was moving forward comfortably and correctly.

With a focus on foundations, rhythm and straightness were key to improving all combinations. 

Boyd was so passionate and very hands on, helping to demostrate the feel and response he was looking for. This was fantastic to watch and just as awesome opportunity for fence sitters as well! It was amazing watching such precision and accuracy. Everything Boyd was explaining and working on improving was easily transferable across to other disciplines.  One big one... Fail to prepare, prepare to fail!

Congratulations to all drivers, backsteppers and teams for working so hard in your lessons and all making improvements throughout the three days.

A massive thanks to Boyd Exell taking the time out of his busy schedule to develop the Drivers in Australia.  We hope to have you back again in the near future!

Thank you to the William's family and RM Equestrian Centre for hosting Boyd, the clinic and also the "An Evening with Boyd Exell" on Saturday night in your amazing clubhouse,  a wonderful special social event.

We would also like to thank Peter Lee and Gavin Robson travelling from Victoria and Bob Edwards from Queensland for your assistance and the amazing support provided for the drivers.

And lastly, thank you to everyone who helped over the three days, it is greatly appreciated. 

We look forward to planning the next one!
