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 October 19 6:30 pm

Happy Fall Everyone

Please come out and enjoy meeting together in our new meeting place. The renovations to the barn that was once part of Mary’s grandparents’ summer home are now complete. The building has been lovingly restored and the decor is stunning.

Our agenda will include a recap of this year’s horse show as well as discussion on planning events for 2023. Please plan to share any thoughts or ideas you may have.

You can bring along a favorite fall dessert to share if you wish.

Speaking at our October meeting will be Dr. Renee Slonaker. She will discuss the anti-inflammatory diet and how to keep up our energy levels while maintaining muscle strength as we age. Perhaps we should skip dessert sharing at this meeting 🙁

See you Wednesday,

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: waller.hww@gmail.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.
