We are finally settling into our new home in Danby, Vermont. Lovely new facility and farm. I’ve just returned home from Ladd Farm in Bridgewater Farm where we have conducted our fourth driving workshop in two years. Its always inspiring to see how much progress horses and their humans can achieve in just a few days. So inspired I have committed to my own driving goals for the summer…..1. To get the basic driving foundation on my saddle horses, Beaugart, a ASH/arab cross (who has issues with ropes in zome 4 and 5) and my aging anglo/arab Manny. 2. To get Ripple, one of my Percheron rehabs comfortable driving as a single (this makes him anxious) and 3. to bring a new horse along…foundation, to ground driving to driving a cart.
So, Tuesdays are my days off. Never had one of those before!
Tuesdays are now driving days at the farm. I welcome visitors, teamsters, friends, family and anyone interested in learning to drive to come on out to the new farm and get involved. Our first driving day will be Tuesday, May 21st. We’ll start around 10am. Go here for directions.
