Stone Bridge Members are a group of like-minded individuals who gather together to enjoy both carriage driving and social events. We host clinics, lessons, Horse Driving Trials and a Combined Driving Event (currently the only CDE in Alberta).
Founded as a nonprofit Society in 2005, Stone Bridge has each year hosted fun, safe and challanging horse driving events. Over the years we have had clinicians and judges from the USA (Muffy Seaton, Jane Anne Merritt, Penny Nicely Sarah Schmitt, Sterling Grabern, Bill Lower), Europe (Ewood Boom, Anne Okema) and Canada (Francois Bergeron, Doug Orr, Lorraine Hill, Ellen Hockley).
From our Horse Driving Trials, (The Wild Rose Classic) in July and the Eagle Ridge CDE in August, to pleasure drives, derby’s, fun events and barbeques, there is always something to interest everyone, young or not so young!
