[2011 news shared on Horse Smarts Blog]

Two NH-bred and raised carriage horses, named Gilford and Glendale, on Sunday July 17, 2011 took their owners, Rick and Connie Moses of Granite State Carriage, to the top of Mt. Washington. The event truly was a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Several riders and beginning carriage drivers have asked us how to learn more about carriage driving, or how to start their own horse. Below are facilities, organizations, and professionals in the Northeast you can learn from!

As riders and horses of all ages and degrees of experience come to our drives, and cars share the road, it is important to remember the rules of driving, and riding courtesy.

The first “Driven Image” Carriage Driving Conference and Trade Show was held on March 19 & 20, 2016 in Amherst, MA on the grounds of Hampshire College, just down the road from UMASS Amherst.

Acadia National Park will now be requiring every vehicle that enters the park to show an Entrance Pass. This includes being parked anywhere in the park, including Wildwood Stables.

Mischief wasn’t a fancy show horse. She was a family horse who brought fun and
pleasure to all of us for 35 years rather than making her mark in the larger world of
competition, although I think she could have, had we been oriented that way.

Spirits lifting to the strong, steady clip-clop rhythm of hoofbeats on country lanes…

This is my 3rd full year as a GSCA member. I'm a trail rider who was initially concerned about joining a driving club, however that has not been a problem at all :). All you need is a love for horses and to enjoy talking about them.
