The Mid-Atlantic Weekend of Pleasure Driving and American Driving Society (ADS) Annual Meeting are events not to be missed. They will be held at Morven Park in Leesburg, VA, August 6-9, 2009.
Organizers have added some fun driving events, including a poker drive and a new event for the 2010 Rulebook, a Continuous Day of Driving. There will be a special Drive in Front of the Mansion for a memorable photo opportunity. The event is offering the CAA Proficiency test and have added a prep course, taught by Andy Marcoux, which is open to everyone. Mickie Bowen will do a clinic on Driving Multiples. In addition to the clinic, Bowen will be available for individual lessons with your experienced multiple or her horses. This is to be scheduled and paid for at the event. Space is limited. Additionally, Dr. Richard Forfa will lead a seminar on how to condition your horse for driving.
Sprinkled among the horse activities are ADS committee meetings that are open to everyone. If you have an interest or an idea, this is the time to share it with the ADS Board. Right before the Virginia-sized barbeque on Saturday, is the ADS Annual Members Meeting and Silent Auction. Well-known artist Jean Clagett, and new Virginia resident has donated a special piece to the auction. Please bring your items to help support this event.
Cost is $80 for the weekend or $30 per day. Horse expenses are additional. Want to bring your horse and drive just for the day? There is a nominal $10 trailer-in fee and the $30 day fee.
