Tons of fun expected with Carlisle Clydesdales

September 27, 2019 06:19 PM

CARLISLE – A barn full of Clydesdales is ready to show off the Schoharie Valley. Willie, John Henry, Marc, Buddy, Denver, Scott, Ivy, Mac, and now Autumn - just under four months old, host the open house this weekend at the Heather Brooke Hill Farm on Prairie Road.

"They're very gentle, they have a great personality, easy to work around, kids love them," said Stephanie Leavitt.


The open house runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is free and there are other fall decorations plus snacks for sale. There are kids' activities and wagon rides around the 57 acre property.

"There's not a lot of places that are offering horse drawn wagon rides and stuff like that, so it's a chance for the kids to come out and see and get a wagon ride with the horses," said John Leavitt.

He moved the farm from East Greenbush to Carlisle a few years ago.

"Once they get that harness on, their attitude changes. They know it's business," said Leavitt. "They hear that click of the harness and they know it's time to go."
