Welcome to the Colonial Carriage and Driving Society’s web site. This site is intended to give up to date information about our club meetings and special events. The Society welcomes everyone to join the club, whether you drive carriage horses or just have an interest in the history and traditions of carriage driving. Open meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:30 pm at Orleton Farm in Stockbridge, Mass. Some meetings feature an informational speaker as well as the normal business.
Our next club meeting will be our Holiday Party scheduled for Sunday, December 3 5-8 pm at the Devonfield Inn, Lee, MA. This will be a pot luck gathering once again. We are putting together a 2018 calendar featuring photos from the Tub Parade. We will have these available at the holiday party. Perfect stocking stuffer or gift for anybody on your shopping list.
Events for the upcoming year
Saturday, February 24 will be our annual banquet. Stay tuned for time and location.
The calendar of events is listed here and we are always seeking ways to improve our events.
Please check “Listing of Events” on this site for details on other upcoming events. The Society hosts a variety of events, such as driving clinics, informal drives, the Orleton Farm Pleasure Driving Show, Winter Classic Sleigh Rally, Lenox Tub Parade, and Summer Fun Day. Fun Day was created as an opportunity for recreational drivers, as well as seasoned whips, to experience games and friendly competition. The members enjoy the social aspect the Society brings to each meeting and special event, where friends get together to have fun, drive their horses, and to learn more about carriage driving.
The Colonial Carriage and Driving Society was officially formed on January 15, 1989. Twenty-five years later, the club continues to grow and offer many exciting activities. Come to our events or join our club and enjoy the history and tradition of carriage driving.
