For years, classic carriages have intermittently been a part of the Ludwig’s Corner Horse Show. A relatively new phenomenon, the Invitational Carriage Exhibit has enjoyed popularity for many years. Eliminating judging removes the competitive edge for contestants and allows the driving to be more fun for the participants. This procedure ensures an interesting spectrum of entries, which is ideal for spectator entertainment.
See and enjoy the carriages on Sunday during Labor Day Weekend; these “turnouts” should pass through the Main Ring about 2 PM. A pleasure drive of the surrounding countryside follows.
In honor and remembrance of these elegant times, the “Concours d’Elegance” Trophy is awarded to the “best turnout”, which is defined as the most pleasing overall appearance and impression of the horse(s), carriage, harness, driver and passenger(s) together. This trophy has been established and donated by Dr. and Mrs. Rosato.
In addition, in memory of Mr. Robert M. Dunn, the “Sportsmanship in Carriage Driving” Trophy is awarded to the team demonstrating the best sportsmanship during the show. This trophy is donated and presented by the Dunn Family.
To gain information about driving in this event, please call Dr. Donald Rosato at 610-827-7391.
