Carriage Driving

New England Horseback Riding and Carriage Driving is located at the Telemark Wilderness Lodge. We offer a variety of unique and educational horseback riding, carriage driving and sled dog programs for people of all ages.


This season we will be running our carriage driving programs out of our farm in Colebrook New Hampshire, next to The Balsams Resort. See our other website for photos of the farm and environs: The farm backs onto several thousand acres of wild and scenic conservation lands.  there are also many miles of pastoral dirt roads that wind thru the countryside that are perfect for carriage driving.   Learn the elegant art of carriage driving with our well trained carriage horses and ponies. Our horses and ponies love to drive!  Our driving vacations are suitable for someone who has never driven before.    Sit next to a knowledgeable driver and learn everything from harnessing and hitching the horse, types of carriages and driving techniques, to taking the reins and exploring the many scenic miles of dirt roads that leave from our doorstep.

Our Adult  Carriage Driving Camp is a 5  day intensive clinic where you will learn and become comfortable with: Harnessing, hitching, driving basics and safety, driving down the road, in the ring, working with young horses,  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. There are only 3 students per camp session, each will drive their own pony/horse (sitting next to a knowledgeable driver) for the morning.
