The Carriage Driving Event, one of several gatherings of its kind in North America, is devoted exclusively to recreational equine driving. Since 2005 this three-day event has been held at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, Kentucky.
Spectators may witness the excitement of carriage driving while being introduced to yesterday’s world, learning the history and art of this equine sport. Carriage driving focuses on the welfare of the horse, attention to safety and building confidence.
Approximately 60 horses are entered to compete this year. Highlighting the event is a series of clinics, demonstrations and driving instruction featuring some of the nation’s most prominent clinicians and driving experts. There will be a practice show on Sunday.
