Horse people make a difference

Published 9:56am Friday, February 15, 2013

Early in January, when the Carolina Carriage Club met for the annual meeting to plan activities for 2013, several activities to welcome all horse people were included in the calendar. The CCC hands-on beginner driving clinic in March is designed to help folks learn about the sport of driving before they make expensive mistakes. The horse driving trial in May welcomes helpers and spectators, and the 17th annual Pleasure Driving and Dressage Show at Harmon Field Sept. 21 and 22 does the same.

This Saturday, Feb. 16 the community is invited to attend (free of admission) a Fun Day with Minis with the newly formed Foothills Miniature Horse Club, just down Rte. 9 from The Green Creek Fire Department. Contact CCC Member, Connie Brown by Email for more information. The event will run from 10:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.  Attendees are encouraged to bring their own lunch and a chair. Activities include in-hand obstacles including jumps.

For more information about CCC, call Ned Frybarger 828-894-5672 or email
