Carriage Driving Weekend

July 19, 2024 - July 21, 2024

Come see horses of every size, shape, and color hitched to elegant carts and carriages compete for division championships. Celebrate horsepower during this rare three-day weekend of competitions in our brand-new horse arena and throughout the grounds at Wade House Historic Site. A horse-drawn carriage will transport you to the contest grounds, where you will view teams of drivers and horses performing together as they attempt to master a series of trials designed to showcase their versatility, training and talents.

Drivers will be dressed to impress in their best finery – Ladies wearing elegant hats and gentlemen in dapper boaters will drive their horses in a series of competitive classes designed to test the skills of the drivers and the athleticism of the horses. The devil is in the details of this equestrian competition, as drivers try to impress the expert American Driving Society certified judges to win the coveted blue ribbon. At the competition ring witness a variety of carriages – genuine antiques, reproductions and even modern vehicles. Watch the action up close! You’ll thrill at the sounds of the horses breathing and feel their footfall as they demonstrate different gaits and navigate courses under the subtle commands of their drivers.
