ADULT CARRIAGE DRIVING CAMP:
Maybe you are a rider, but you have always wanted to learn how to drive a horse….or like me, you are getting older and the idea of carriage driving just seems more appealing! You might have a horse that you are considering teaching how to drive…..or maybe you just want to learn an elegant art form that has been around a few thousand years longer than automobiles have….
Our Adult Carriage Driving Camp is a 3- 5 day intensive clinic where you will learn and become comfortable with: Harnessing, hitching, driving basics and safety, driving a cones course, driving down the road, in the ring, working with young horses: lunging in harness, ground driving and more. Our horses are well trained and fun to drive. You will start out sitting next to an experienced driver as you learn reinsmanship and build your confidence driving.
