How do Horses Change from Driving to Riding in Combination Classes?

Combination Class 2 Minute Changeover

At the completion of the Driving Line-Up the "Headers" (usually two persons unless the tack/clothing has been stored in the foot basket of the cart), enter the ring with the horse's saddle, bridle and the Driver's change of clothing. The Headers have only two minutes in which to completely change the horse out of harness into saddle/riding gear. The Driver/Rider is allowed to help, but must also change clothing into the appropriate Riding Dress for the Discipline chosen. The Disciplines are usually English Pleasure (Saddleseat), English Pleasure (Hunt Seat), Western Pleasure, or Dressage.
