This year the name has been changed to the Carriage Driving Horse Show and the format will include a variety of driving horses, draft horses, ponies and Very Small Equines (VSE). It will be organized by the Connecticut Valley Driving Club, whose mission is to preserve the tradition of driving horses and carriages.
