Since 1999, the Nashoba Carriage Classic has been a carriage driving tradition in Germantown, Tennessee. Normally held at the beautiful Germantown Charity Horse Show grounds, the Classic is a regional favorite, and we hope you will make plans to attend next year on October 15-17, 2021.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause cancellations to our normal routines, we regret that we are unable to host the 2020 Classic in person. However, in an effort to foster fun and camaraderie with our horses and driving friends, we are pleased to announce that we are holding a virtual edition of the Nashoba Carriage Classic.
We are excited about the new classes we are able to offer with this shift to the virtual world. This year will be our first Utility, Mules and Donkeys, and Bombproof classes at the Classic, and we can’t wait to see all the entries. Send us your best photos, and enter as many classes as you like!
Class Entry Fee, $5.00 each class entered
Photos may be new or old, at a show or at your barn, of your current horse or a previous horse.
Class entries will be judged by overall impression.
Our Judge, Shawn Bigley (Colora, MD), is a respected WPCSA and USEF R Welsh Judge. She also judges for regional show series such as BRAHA, EAAHSC, and the Cecil County 4-H Program. In addition, she has judged for the University of Maryland Equestrian Team.
Having worked with horses most of her life, Shawn breeds and trains Section A, B, and part-bred Welsh ponies that have gone on to be successful in-hand and performance ponies. She competed nationally under saddle and in-hand. In addition, she has taught in numerous clinics including sidesaddle and western pleasure clinics in various venues.
Classes will be pinned with 1st through 6th place rosettes which will be mailed to the winners. Please make sure we have your correct mailing address. All winners will be announced on our Facebook page.
