Well you can get in the carriage driver’s seat at an upcoming clinic hosted by our local driving club, Brass Oaks Driving Society. Spend a day getting an introduction to carriage driving while enjoying the view from the carriage driver’s seat. Everything from drafts to minis will be on hand to give you experience with each one.
