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!

First, check out this new Carriage Driving Calendar Northeast which GSCA maintains:
You can find dates and contact info there for numerous organizations doing carriage driving activities.

THESE FACILITIES, with their 2016 dates on this Calendar NE, OFFER BEGINNER LESSONS and/or auditing:
Carriage BarnHorseCarriageWheel
GMHA (Wheel Runners & more)
Touchstone Farm
Winning Spirits

ALSO on the Driving Calendar NE, SEE the "Clinics, lessons & more" category; almost any Clinic can be audited, there may be an auditing fee.

Look for Maine Driving Club under the Clinics category, which has activities that might be close to you. For an extra dollar added to GSCA’s membership fee, you can join them.  (For details, see GSCA website Club Happenings --   

AND... it so happens we just started a "Training for Carriage" series of blog posts giving step-by-step description of training a youngster from start to first hitch. Click for
Ground Driving Step by Step article with videos; next on the blog will be First hitch, with Pair Driving Training to follow!

Hope this helps get you started!
