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 Event: October 20 6:30 pm. Meeting with speaker

Hi Everyone,
Our next meeting is Wednesday, October 20 at Orleton Farm with coffee and wine at 6:30 pm. We are hoping to arrange for an animal communicator to come and do a reading. Stay tuned for more details to come.

We had a great turnout at our September meeting. We had arranged for osteopath Oliver Dick, D.O., as our guest speaker. Due to unfortunate circumstances he had to cancel. He has let Harvey know that he is doing fine now and so we hope he will be able to come back to speak to our group sometime soon. We did make good use of the meeting time with lots of good discussion recapping the August driving show and beginning to make plans for 2022.

See you all at the October meeting,
Maureen

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.
