The modern park drag or road coach can not be said to be adapted to use on many of our sandy country roads, and in districts where such prevail a vehicle better suited to the purpose must perforce be used. But be it remembered, also, that sandy roads themselves are gradually becoming more and more a relic of the past.
There may be said to be two methods of indulging in the sport of coaching to-day.
First, the driving of a coach or drag simply for the amusement of the owner and his friends.
Second, the running of a "public" or road coach.
The gentlemen's drag differs quite considerably in many points from the road coach, and the rules of the coaching club, which are quoted herewith, point out the distinctions.
