CAA Driver Proficiency Program



Everyone in the carriage driving community benefits from skilled, safe drivers. We encourage you to become a “perpetual student” of carriage driving, especially when it comes to safety.


Touchstone Farm whole-heartedly supports the Carriage Association of America's Driver Proficiency Program, in which skilled driving instructors evaluate drivers for safety, skill, and knowledge.


Touchstone Farm and Andy Marcoux of Coachman’s Delight are offering lessons to help drivers to prepare to take and pass the CAA Driver Proficiency Test at Level I and II. Join us for individual lessons for you and your horse to see if you are prepared and ready to pass your test!
