About the show:

Colonial Carriage & Driving Society and Orleton Farm are proud to play a part in promoting the history and
tradition of pleasure driving here in the Berkshire Hills. The Berkshires had great history in the gilded
age with the large estates and wonderful carriage houses as the place to come and be seen driving
your horse and carriage. Harvey and Mary make their home at Orleton Farm, which has been in
Mary's family since 1900 and has always been a horse facility. The grounds have become home to
Colonial Carriage for its many events held here throughout the year: sleigh rallies, clinics, fun day,
club meetings, and the pleasure show.

The show started 16 years ago at famous sculptor Daniel Chester French’s home, Chesterwood, in
Stockbridge, Massachusetts. The show continued there for three years, with the number of exhibitors
and spectators increasing each year. The need for more space prompted the show to move to Eden
Hill, one of Stockbridge’s great estates. In 2006, with the desire to add more classes, the show expanded to a two-day show and moved to Orleton Farm. A third day was added in 2011, expanding
the show with more classes and divisions for our exhibitors.

The Orleton Farm Combined Test and Pleasure Driving Show is a unique event. The first day offers
dressage and timed obstacles followed by a two-day pleasure driving show. There are classes and
divisions for everyone. This year we have added the Pony Scurry Stake Class on Saturday and the Horse
Scurry Stake Class on Sunday with cash prizes. North American Carriage & Scurry Racing teams, featuring Paul Z. Martin, Jr. from Pennsylvania, will compete at 1 PM on Saturday and Sunday.

Spectators will also enjoy a four-in-hand put to a coach for a demonstration on Sunday by Harvey
Waller. The 2014 schedule also offers a Draft Division, a Park Division and a Picnic Class. Adding
these classes will bring variety and excitement to the event. As our show continues to grow, we are
dedicated to make your experience the best possible.

The show relies on the friendly volunteers from Colonial Carriage & Driving Society.
