Saratoga Driving Association Horse Driving Trial - October 5th, 2008

Tamara continues to expand her driving and competition experience outside the draft horse circles with another respectable performance at the Saratoga Driving Association Horse Driving Trial held on a magnificent day at Aker's Acres in Valatie, NY. She drove a Kuhnle marathon vehicle and DeeDee, one of her veteran Percheron mares and was fortunate to have Sue Mallory for her navigator. Sue was the navigator for Robin Groves in the World Singles Driving Championship in Poland just recently and also groomed for Scott Monroe in the same event in Italy in 2006 and navigated for Scott in many subsequent competitions. Tamara also tried her hand at navigation for Sue when it was her turn to run the marathon phase with her Halflinger, Mack.

Annual ERDHA Old Fashioned Horse Drawn Sleigh Rally

Each year Classic Carriage Service proudly hosts the Eastern Regional Draft Horse Association sponsored Old Fashioned Horse Drawn Sleigh Rally at our farm in Johnstown. Teamsters from the ERDHA bring their horses and sleighs (or wagons when snow is in short supply) to provide free rides to spectators.

Included in the sleigh rally are the "Currier & Ives" and obstacle classes. Spectators can watch as the teamsters turn out in the style of the Currier & Ives era and demonstrate their horse handling skill and speed in the obstacle courses.

A special thanks to everyone who came out and made the 2009 Sleigh Rally such a wonderful spectacle and huge success! Click here to view pictures from the event
