Horsing Around In Maine, Ever Thought Of Bringing Your Four Legged Hay Burner With You?

Maine vacations always something to look forward to but with your horse along for the ride so to speak?

Suremaine harbor views thing, with a call ahead to Carriages of Acadia you could bring Trigger, Bullet, Lightning with you to see the 57 miles of roadways around Acadia National Park in Mount Desert Island Maine.

A local Houlton Maine attorney talked at a recent Rotary Club meeting about his "other business". Michael Carpenter won a ten year contract award for the right to use ten horse drawn carriages.

To promote Maine and help close to 20,000 tourists to see granite bridges, amazing Maine water and land views around Acadia National Park.

Locally owned businesses, especially the ones tied to tourism and agriculture are near and dear to my heart growing up on a Northern Maine potato farm. And being a big personal fan of the Pine Tree State.

The Carriages of Acadia tours of Acadia National Park use grains, hay from Aroostook County. Local Amish supply materials, made the specially built carriages. Plan a vacation where you rent a stall for your horse so he can get away too, to Maine, the way life should be. 

Attorney Carpenter practices law during the week in Houlton Maine and come Friday night, bee lines it to the horse stables to help his family.

To pitch in with the hired crew that cares for, tends the ten carriages, teams of draft horses to provide the tours of Acadia National Park. Book your carriage ride, ask about boarding your own horse, parking the trailer and taking a trail ride of your own in Maine the next vacation between June and October. 1.877.276.3622 is the phone number.Maine, big state, come see it up close and personal, first hand yourself.

I would have not considered that, but it sounds like a great idea!

There are more and more communities where you buy there based on your neighbor having the same love, passion. Horse communities are big in some areas and a trail ride to Maine in caravan fashion to board your horse, explore the 57 miles of this incredible National Park, Acadia is an option for some.
