Nestled in the rolling countryside of southeast New Hampshire, The Carriage Barn provides a full spectrum of equine therapeutic programs and activities. In the context of a quiet, natural outdoor setting, our gentle horses and supportive team help participants form unique relationships that nurture and empower them in ways that bring new insights, self-confidence, improved communication, and relaxation.
Due to our lovely New England weather….we had to postpone our planned fundraising evening at Michael’s Harborside in Newburyport, MA. Originally scheduled for Monday, February 9th, we are now planning to be at Micahel’s Harborside on Monday, February 23rd.
Fingers crossed for calm weather! Hope you can join us to encourage Mother Nature to bring Spring.

Fundriaser Evening at Michael’s Harborside
Please join us at Michael’s Harborside Restaurant, 1 Tournament Wharf in Newburyport, MA on Monday, February 9th from 4 to 9pm. Michael’s Harborside is hosting a Benefit Fundraiser for The Carriage Barn Equine Assisted Therapy Programs.
Michael’s Harborside is Newburyport’s premier waterfront steak and seafood restaurant. Overlooking the Merrimac River, Michael’s is known for the freshest seafood on the North Shore. It is a favorite of locals who dine out often, boaters staying at one of the many marinas, and tourists who come from all over New England, Canada and even farther away to get a true taste of New England.
Whatever the weather outside, Michael’s is always warm and welcoming with fireside dining in the winter and the most popular outdoor bar in Newburyport during the warmer months. Besides the most delicious lobster roll and the juiciest burger, Michael’s features year-round Specials, Live Entertainment and family-friendly dining.
Guests can choose items from any menu and Michael’s Harborside will donate a portion of each dinner check to The Carriage Barn.
Avoid the crowds and come with your family, or that special someone, for an early Valentine’s Day celebration. We encourage clients, parents, volunteers, and community members to join us as we raise funds to support our therapeutic horseback riding and carriage driving programs.
