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
Our horse show is now complete, and it was a great show. The weather was hot and humid for the first 2 days, but delightful on the last 2 days. We had approximately 100 carriage entries and 110 vintage cars on the grounds. I have received so many emails and texts thanking Mary, myself, and Colonial Carriage for putting on the show. It is so satisfying now that the show is in the record books and that it went so well. It will be good to see everyone at the meeting after working so closely together at the show.
See you at the meeting,
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.
