New for 2016: the Kentucky Horse Park has increased rates that we must pass along to our participants. Therefore, the stall fee has increased $5 per day (to $45). In addition, the KHP has imposed a one-time fee of $10 per horse; this fee will be used for maintenance and improvements to the stalls and stabling areas. These fees are itemized on the registration forms.

2016 Participants Please Note:

  • If you are participating in the Kentucky Classic CDE the previous weekend, please notify Ellen Ettinger, the CDE secretary, on your entry form that you will also be attending the National Drive. She can then assign you a stall that won't require you to move for the National Drive. Your layover night stabling fee (Monday night) should be added to your National Drive entry.
  • Campsites at KHP are full and there is a waiting list. An alternative campground is available - see the Campgrounds page for additional information.  If you have a spot at the KHP campground and wish to get your parking pass before you go through the main gate, stop by the campground store first, pick up your parking pass, then proceed through the main gate to unload and set up in the barns.

Pics of You

John will work with you from the beginning to make sure that we cover the events to the exhibitors' and event management's satisfaction. His Number One goal is to provide lasting memories for his customers and to document their special days.

Immediately after the event, Pics of You will post the event photos to its store front. Please allow one week for processing digital download orders, although in most cases they try to get those out within 2-3 days. Please allow 3 weeks for print orders and 6 weeks for canvas orders.

Additional Information

Welcome to The National Drive!

The absolute best thing about this event is the people who attend - drivers and riders of all skill levels.  The common factor is their great attitude about lending a helping hand when needed.  From our clinicians, to our staff and including our drivers and riders in attendance, we are a very laid back group of people.  You can drive and ride thru the Kentucky Horse Park and mix with awesome people who will make you feel like you have been at a family reunion.
