Coaching Weekend

By Lisa VanWilliams

It felt like stepping back in time watching these coaches regally roll their way through gates of a 165-year-old Victorian palace. We visited Chateau-sur-Mer this weekend and we had no idea that behind the mansion they had set up temporary stables for coaching weekend. We were waiting for a tour of the mansion and I heard the rumble of the carriage approaching, and I excitedly ran outside to catch a glimpse of a spectacular team of incredibly groomed horses pulling this bumble bee colored coach.

A dozen coaching teams from around the country met up this past weekend in Newport, RI and they were driving authentic 19th-century horse-drawn carriages through the streets and mansions of Newport.  Men dressed in Top Hats and suits, and the women with hats and gloves. Here are a few pics we were able to snap:
