Joanna Wilburn drives whenever the opportunity happens! But teaching for her is just as exciting! Getting people involved in driving is her passion and she has been instrumental in getting many Junior Drivers driving and showing. Building a great relationship between driver and equine with Safety, Safety, Safety being most important is what drives Joanna.
Joanna has shown in Welsh Pony Shows and Open Driving Shows with singles and pairs for over 30 years. She has competed in Combined Driving Events as a Driver in Single Preliminary and Navigated for Single, Pair and Four in Hand from Training to Advanced.
Joanna has been the clinician for the Spring National Drive since it’s inception in 2010 and has been one of the rotating clinicians for the the Fall National Drive. The National Drive is a Recreational Driving convention with lessons, talks, vendors, and various carriage related activities (weighing horse/carriage, horse shoeing, carriage maintenance, handling emergencies, etc). Originally held in Lexington KY, it is now held in Edinburgh IN at the Hoosier Horse Park. Look us up on FB under The National Drive or http://www.nationaldrive.net.
Joanna travels to give clinics and would enjoy working with you or your club to widen your driving knowledge and build a better communication between you and your equine. She has a wonderful speaker and headset system enabling better hearing by the driver and auditors.
Joanna has shown Madyn Starman aka Spanky for Connie Moore for the past three years at Welsh Shows winning National Champion or Reserve National Champion in the Driving Divisions and National Champion in Halter all three years.
Joanna occasionally takes in ponies that have been started but need further education. Due to not having enough farm staff, she no longer accepts totally untrained animals (you need a second person to do that).
