I’m busy this week with putting together the May issue of our magazine, The Carriage Journal. And since I haven’t had time to find anything to post on the blog today am focused on the magazine, I thought I would give you a sneak peek at what we’ll be featuring in this next issue.

We’ll have an article about an unusual vehicle that may have been used by a seventeenth-century Swedish field marshal during the Thirty Years War; a photo essay on how to properly turn out Gigs in the pleasure-driving show ring; a feature on ancient Egyptian bits; and an article on the history of the horse-drawn connection to the early oil industry in Pennsylvania. Plus, as always, we’ll have interesting articles in a variety of departments, including “In the Carriage House,” “In the Stable,” “The Road Behind,” and much more.
