We would like to introduce TEAM PATCHWORK RANCH
Owner and manager of the South Carolina division, Carina Crawford, is a competitive carriage driver.
After years of competing in ridden dressage in Germany, she found her love and passion for Carriage Driving.
It all started with her most amazing Haflinger gelding “Major”, who was truly a blessing for a beginner driver:
teaching his human how to prepare him for a show, taking care of his human during the show and on top of everything super fun to ride.
In “Major’s” footsteps followed the Haflinger mares “Itakauva” (aka ‘Snack’) and “Memory” (aka ‘Memo’). Both driven single and finally in a pair. And that triggered the passion for pair driving. Snack and Memo accompanied Carina from Training level through Intermediate level. It was FUN!!
And then all changed…. DONNA, a German Riding Pony mare, came into Carina’s life and turned everything upside down…
A long story short:
Carina is now driving German Riding Ponies and is very successfully breeding German Riding Ponies. For the sport of driving and for any discipline of riding.
Please, be introduced to the ponies which make the
