Barre Riding & Driving Club
From 1942 through 1945 mounted patrols were organized under the leadership of Herbert Rice, Jennie Blaisdel and Captain E.B. Stone. The patrols cut and maintained trails in addition to assisting police and fire patrols in search and rescue efforts.
In the seventy years that the club has been in existence, it has been involved in a multitude of activites. The Galloping Hooves 4-H Horse Club was started in 1955 by Jennie Blaisdell. BRDC held competitive 35 mile trail rides starting in 1965.
Today we offer a Horse Show Series. Our Scholarship Show earns money for local students continuing on in higher education. We also offer spring and fall trail rides along with a gymkhana series. We have several functions for the members to relax and have fun with their horses.
