In this two-day, hands-on clinic, you’ll work with experienced teamsters of the Green Mountain Draft Horse Association and their horses in the beautiful setting of the Breeding Barn. If you’ve never driven a horse-drawn cart, this clinic will help you to get comfortable. If you’re an experienced driver, enjoy brushing up your skills and meeting Vermont’s draft horse community.
On Saturday, learn the basics of draft horses, how to harness, hook up a cart, and ground drive while focusing on safety working around these large animals.
On Sunday*, put your newfound skills to work! Jump in a cart or wagon, drive an obstacle course, and take turns driving on a horse-drawn tour of the Farm.
A light breakfast and full lunch will be served both days.
*Participation in the Sunday clinic requires previous attendance in the Saturday class, past year’s attendance can be counted.
