The Nashoba Carriage Association was founded in 1997 by a group of horse enthusiasts who wanted to learn and promote the sport of carriage driving. In 1999, the first Nashoba Carriage Classic was held at Schilling Farms in Collierville, Tennessee. This pleasure show was expanded later to include an Arena Driving Trial and is one of the highlights of the driving season in the Mid-South. In 2016, the ADT was replaced by the popular Driving Derby competition format.
Today, the Nashoba Carriage Classic and Driving Derby is a regional favorite held each year at the beautiful Germantown Charity Horse Show grounds. The show is a step back in time and a wonderful display of Southern hospitality. Our Sidesaddle Division adds a lovely historical flavor and is returning for the fifth year.
Members of the Nashoba Carriage Association also participate in a variety of pleasure drives and clinics throughout the year. Be sure to check our events page for upcoming clinics, and we’d love for you to join us at our 2022 show, October 14-16!
