Other Info
This is one of our club's most popular picnic drives. It is held at the warm and inviting Cone’s Farm. A lovely potluck picnic follows the drive at picnic tables in the shade. The Cone family will provide hot dogs, hamburgers and chowder. Bring a potluck dish and a chair. For the drive, drivers will be heading out at 10:30 am. There are approximately 5-6 miles of paved and dirt country roads. Riders are always welcome as the Babcock Pond Wildlife Management area is almost adjacent to the Farm and the carriage route. NEW THIS YEAR: for added entertainment, we are planning a treasure hunt with prizes. You won't want to miss it! We want to have a strong club turnout for this event - join the fun! We invite you to drive your horse with the group, ride your horse on the trails, take a ride with one of the drivers, or just come and relax!
