Teamwork makes the dream work! The driver and navigator relationship is the epitome of the dynamic duo. The navigator’s roll is to help the driver plan a route in each obstacle on the marathon course. With all good plans, they sometimes go awry, so the importance of clear communicate between driver and navigator second to none.
We are excited to offer an opportunity for drivers and navigators to learn, develop, and grow a stronger partnership. Andy Marcoux from Coachman’s Delight will be teaching on July 31st directly before the GMHA CT & ADT. This two part clinic will begin with a lecture in the Youth Center, then migrate out to the dust bowl (warm up arena) for a practical hands on experience.
“The navigator is a critical and essential part of the driving team. Not only do they keep the carriage balanced, but they also help ensure the driver stays on course and on time. I’d be lost without mine!” ~Alice Bradeen
“…it is important to know that someone is with the horse other than the driver who is ready and able to help at all times while on the competition grounds. Over the years we have all have witnessed many a potential accident prevented by having someone with the turnout.” ~Martha Hanks Nicoll
“… it’s to understand what it’s allowed to do and what it’s not allowed. If the navigator has taken an action what will be the consequences on the competitor and on the safety of the turnout.” ~Francois Bergeron
