Introduction: Sleigh Rally

On February 2, 2003 the Stony Brook Camera Club sponsored a filed trip to the annual sleigh rally held at Waters Farm in West Sutton, MA. It was great! Special thanks goes to Bob Sheppard who organized the trip. What a great idea! Here is a link to Waters Farm.

We enjoyed the scenery, the horses were beautiful, the competition was fascinating, and the Currier & Ives competition was grand. We recommend the trip. In the event of ground too muddy to allow car parking in the field, the event is post-poned a week. In the event of no snow, wheeled carriages are used. This year the event went on schedule with snow, but there was no sun at all and a chilling breeze. If there is snow and sun next year we will certainly return for more photography and enjoyment.

Both Joan and I are complete novices with respect to horses, much less sleigh rallies. Please take my comments with a grain of salt! If you know about the event and spot any errors, please send me an email with suggestions by clicking on the link at the bottom of the left browser window. Thank you!

The pictures in this section are half mine and half Joan's. My favorite (the next to the last) is Joan's; I wish I had taken it!
