MTCC Driving Derby


From Kate Bushman

Middle Tennessee Carriage Club (MTCC) held its fifth annual Driving Derby on Sunday September 26, 2020 at Whip Hand Farm in Franklin, TN. A Driving Derby is a carriage-driving competition of speed and accuracy, where drivers compete over an arena course that is a combination of marathon and cone obstacles. Each driver is timed through a numbered course of obstacles/gates, taken in the proper direction and in numerical order to the finish line.  Drivers may enter equines of any breed and size, from minis to horses.

The show offered Training and Preliminary+ divisions for each of the following groups:

·     VSE (Very Small Equine)/Small Pony (less than 12.2 hands)
·     Pony (12.2 to 14.2 hands)
·     Horse (over 14.2 hands)

Kate reported, “We had a terrific turnout for the derby this weekend.  There were 15 entries, lots of spectators, and a  lovely day, weatherwise.”
