Fun Day is scheduled for next Saturday, June 10. The Open Farm Drive will start at 10 am. Come as you can and drive at will. We will have the cones course, dressage course and the trails. It will help get your horse acclimated to the farm for the show. At 1pm, plan to put your horse/pony away and come for lunch at the Party Barn.

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.
