    Default Who are the "Carriage Companions" meeting in Blowing Rock in July?

    We are planning our summer horse vacations.

    I checked the calendar at
    http://www.blowingrockequestrian.com...scalendar.html and noticed a group called "Carriage Companions" will be at Blowing Rock July 10-17. Could anyone tell me what group that is? It would be wonderful to have more driving companions ... and learn more about my favorite sport. Besides ... to get out of the heat and up into the mountains again would be wonderful!

    Any information would be appreciated!

    THANKS!

    FUNDRS, Fun driving and riding society, loosely based in GA, they have members in NC/SC/FL too. They are doing a drive/ride in TN May 7th as well. They have a website, but they dont keep up with it since most the members are on facebook.

    It is truly a wonderful group -we had a blast in Black Prong in March and there is a group of us (not me this time), going camping in TN in May (I think this weekend).

    We have no organizational structure, no prez, no BOD -just decide to do things and do it. Membership is completely open -no dues, no fees, nothing.

    We don't do competitions as a groups, just fun stuff! We cook together, camp, we drive and ride together and we have fun, lots of fun: ages 15 to 80! As a group, we own lots of dogs. So, expect dogs. Last year at blowing rock we had around 25 humans, 17 dogs and 12 horses...and a fair amount of alcohol in the evenings. Did I mention fun?

    We are always glad to have new people -don't be shy, show up!
