Walnut Hill Carriage Show

PDC members Bob and Leslie Yarborough and Carl and Caroline Cox journeyed to beautiful Pittsford, N.Y. for the 43rd Anniversary of the Walnut Hill Carriage Driving Competition. There were classes foreverything from mini’s to four-in-hands of coaching horses, including scurries, presentation, carriage dog, ladies’ wicker Phaeton picnic turn-out, fancy dress costume, and more…..Truly the organizers met their stated objective: …”providing driving enthusiasts with the opportunity to advance the classical driving arts for the improvement of the sport of horse and carriage driving…..and to promote public interest in the contributions made by the horse and carriage to our cultural, economic and social history.”
We were proud to have PDC member Maryalice Matheson serving as one of the judges, and similarly happy to witness PDC member and CAA President Dr. Thomas Burgess take home the ribbons for Reserve Grand champion with his elegant and talented pair of Friesians.
Those of us who were fortunate to attend this event all agreed that it needs to be on next year’s PDC calendar!
