What is Adaptive Carriage Driving?

This program teaches the skill of driving a horse drawn carriage. Lessons are run with an instructor on the ground as well as a driving instructor assisting in the carriage. Along with learning the unique skill of carriage driving, this sport inherently provides a unique movement experience and challenges the muscular, neurological, vestibular and sensory systems. This program may be suitable for those unable or unwilling to mount a horse for various reasons such as weight restrictions, excess adductor tone, fear of heights or may just prefer it to riding.

What is the Cost?

$45 per lesson (lessons are 30min duration). We run on a seasonal schedule therefore invoices are sent out at the beginning of each season.
