Pics of You - John will work with you from the beginning to make sure that we cover the events to the exhibitor's and event management's satisfaction. Our number one goal is to provide memories for our customer and document their special day.

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

Sometimes things just get away from you, that's why we are here to help. Perhaps you purchased a horse and a google search pulled up our site with photos from his early career. Or maybe time just slipped away from you. Our archival site can help.

The Carriage Association of America was founded in 1960; it is the oldest and largest international organization devoted to the preservation, restoration and use of horse-drawn carriages and sleighs. We’ve introduced thousands of people to the joy of collecting these vehicles, and to the pleasure of driving them. Won't you join us?

Carriage Imports specializes in metal vehicles with brakes and shocks, suitable for pleasure driving, or for the aspiring and advanced marathon driver. We are especially proud to be the sole United States distributor for Excellent Carriages (Netherlands).

We also stock harness, driving wear, and other specialized products that I find on my annual trips to Europe, when I meet with vendors and look for items that meet our standards and which I have inspected in-person.

Please contact us to discuss your specifications! We're happy to assist with custom or specialized orders, in addition to discussing our in-stock inventory.

Vendors: Please complete and return this registration form so we have enough booth space or trailer space for you. The vendor list is constantly changing so check back for any updated information.

Pleasurethyme - As the US distributor for Kutzmann carriages, we offer a selection of sport, recreation and presentation carriages for equines of all sizes. With a wide range of available options, Pleasurethyme works directly with Kutzmann to provide a carriage customized the way you want it.

Driving Digest Magazine is the only independent magazine in North America devoted to carriage driving.  Our tag-line is “carriage driving for every equine,” which means we cover not only driving horses and ponies, but also donkeys, mules, drafts and minis. It is published bi-monthly (6 times per year). 

At Driving Digest, our goal is to provide informative and educational content for anyone interested in driving any kind of equine.  All breeds are represented as well.  Our readers range from the backyard driver to those who aspire to compete internationally, and even World Champions and everyone in between.

Iowa Valley Carriage caters to a wide variety of driving venues for the light equine. Shoppers will find products for:

  • pleasure showing,
  • combined driving events,
  • commercial carriage operators,
  • recreational driving,
  • wagon training, and
  • backyard excursions.

We provide products for miniatures, ponies, light horses, donkeys and mules. 

The American Driving Society, Inc. (ADS) seeks to promote the best interests of the sport of driving horses and ponies to carriages both competitively and for recreation. Please stop by our booth for membership information, ADS merchandise for purchase or just to say hi and introduce yourself!
