Welcome to The National Drive!

The 2017 National Drive stall list is posted here.

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 through the Kentucky Horse Park and mix with awesome people who will make you feel like you have been at a family reunion. "It's the most fun you can have with your clothes on."

2017 Participants Please Note:

  • Our contact information has changed!  If you have any questions or need information you don't see on this website, please contact Virginia Goodman, secretary, at 502-370-1848 (leave msg) or email TheNationalDrive@gmail.com.
  • The campground has a block of sites reserved for participants of the National Drive. To reserve a site, you must call 859-259-4257 and at the prompt, choose 2 for the campground store (NOT 1 for reservations or you will get Reserve America, which has no knowledge of the National Drive) and tell them you are attending the National Drive for a special rate. Because of the Halloween event occurring at the same time, there is a 5-night minimum stay at the campground. It does not matter when during the drive you are attending, but if you wish to stay at the campground, you must pay for 5 nights.
  • 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.
  • The American Driving Society will be holding its annual meeting during the Drive. Details are posted on their website so that you may attend if you are interested.
