Field trials, pleasure driving in 70 Mile House

Big turnout expected for carriage driving at Huber Farm

The Huber Farm & Equestrian Centre in 70 Mile House is hosting a carriage driving field trial and pleasure driving classes this weekend.

The event features three pleasure driving classes in the morning and a driven dressage test, then in the afternoon a small cross country and an obstacle course. It takes place between 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday (Sept. 28-29).

Organizer Ken Huber says at least 12 hitches (teams) will be there.

“This is a big turnout for the fall because most people don’t dare trust the weather. They’re coming from Fraser Lake, Vanderhoof, Armstrong, Fraser Valley and Pritchard.”

Spectators get in free.

“If you’re coming, bring a picnic lunch because we don’t have a concession for this one.”
