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.

Next Meeting: Wednesday, November 20 6:30 pm

Greetings From Maureen…

Dear club members,
We are pleased to have Frank Curtiss as our guest speaker for the November 20th meeting.
After a long and strenuous show season ends, and fall and winter approach, we all are feeling aches, pains and muscle spasms that just won’t go away.
Frank can help us with exercises, strength training, and stretching to help us stay in shape and work our bodies correctly. He also is trained in Dr. McKenzie’s method of physical therapy and will be open for questions throughout the chat.

Come for a potluck dinner, bring a friend, and learn how to care for that over worked body.

Remember to mark your calendar for the December 8th Holiday Party. Wine, cheese, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres, dessert (already have the low down on that), music. Devonfield Inn will be beautifully decorated for the holidays.

5-8, $20 per person. RSVP maureengamelli2@gmail.com.

Please send any news you may have for the newsletter (new members to the family, photos from events, want ads) to Jen Wilcox at: jen.wilcox@verizon.net or Harvey at: hwaller562@aol.com.

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.
