On Saturday there will be a Cones Scramble and Safari Drive. There are also opportunities to practice a cones course and dressage in a regulation dressage arena, followed by a Therapeutic Driving Demo presented by Touchstone Drivers topped off with an ice cream social (yes, it's local homemade ice cream from Connolly's down the road). And there's more. Saturday night, there will be a a classy Reception and Banquet Dinner at Timberdoodle Club. On Sunday there's a drive to the surrounding farm and a Blessing of the Horses and Carriages on Sunday morning.
