Fjord Horse Experience: Two-Hour Pleasure Driving

Thu, Aug 1, 2019 - Thu, Sep 26, 2019

Program Overview

Enjoy a two-hour experience with Norwegian Fjord Horses, a unique breed of gentle horses, while learning the basics of pleasure driving a horse and cart. Selectively bred for more than 20 centuries, Norwegian Fjord Horses might best be described as short and stocky, friendly and versatile. Whether pulling boats along Scandinavia’s fjords, working in farm fields, or pulling a cart to market, fjord horses were important partners for generations of farmers. Lessons begin in an outdoor arena and progress to beautiful trails through the quiet woods above Grand Marais. This experience is open to all, including those who would prefer simply to relax and take a pleasure drive with a team of fjord horses driven by the instructor.
