The American Driving Society (ADS) is pleased to announce the host venues for the new head-to-head driven North American Preliminary andthe North American Intermediate Championships. The Preliminary Championships will be held at the Glen Willow CDE, September 5-7 in Avondale, Pennsylvania. The Intermediate Championship will be held at the Katydid CDE, October 30 – November 2 in Windsor, South Carolina. All VSE Championships will be held at the Equestrians Institute CDE, August 8-10 in Ethel, Washington.
Each event will be a driven championship, taking place over a single competition weekend. Host venues will likely change location year after year, moving around North America so drivers in various areas can travel to compete. These additional championships are being offered to provide an opportunity for ADS level drivers to meet and compete and to create additional enthusiasm for the sport of Carriage Driving.
All updates on this exciting new program can be found on the “Awards Programs” section of www.americandrivingsociety.org. The 2014 program is experimental and organizers and ADS leaders will work to ensure the program continues to improve.
