Carriage trials

Hundreds of people showed up to participate on July 20 and 21 at the Cariboo Trails CDE and Driving Clinic hosted by Huber Farm  in 70 Mile House.

Participants test drove their accuracy in many obstacle trials and novelty events for miniature donkeys and horses to full size horses and everything in between!

There were one and two person carriages of all shapes and sizes.

This was definitely something an entire family would enjoy and came complete with a concession with homemade deals you couldn’t refuse!

Stay tuned for another exciting event in late September!
