This just in - we are pleased to announce Country Diner Food Truck will be with us each day of the Fall Drive. Click here to see their menu. Country Diner comes highly recommended and the menu looks scrumptious! Reasonably priced, too.

The National Drive is moving! 

The National Drive is proud to announce it is moving to the Hoosier Horse Park at Edinburgh, Indiana for the 2018 season, both Spring Fling, May 24-27 and the Fall Drive, October 2-7. 

Come join us back in Indiana where we all cheered on the soldiers who qualified for their CAA proficiency in 2010. Hoosier Horse Park, home of the Indiana CDE for 24 years, is a quiet, picturesque park consisting of miles of trails and wide-open spaces. You'll be able to drive the competitors' routes as well as dabble in seven hazards, two of which are water. We'll have areas to work on the flat and drive several cones courses-maybe even a derby-as well as a ring for the Pooch Parade, private lessons or dressage figures.

You'll be close to stalls, tent/office, parking and camping; no more long-distance travel back to the camper or trailer.  No admission charges, no traffic or extra horse fees; just low rates and lots of fun.

Off-campus activities include an outlet mall, Little Nashville, the Brown County Art Colony and Indianapolis, just minutes away. The Taylorsville and Franklin exits off I-65 afford many fine restaurants and hotels, several pet-friendly.

If you've never visited Hoosier Horse Park, you're in for a pleasant surprise. Ask anyone who has been there and they'll tell you it has a lot to offer and should not be missed just because of a few extra miles. Did we mention you'll save money? Make your plans to attend next year's activities in Indiana. You won't regret it.

​The National Drive appreciates the continued support of participants, vendors and sponsors and looks forward to continuing the driving (and riding) tradition. 

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 of lending a helping hand when needed.  From our clinicians, to our staff, to our drivers and riders in attendance, we are a very laid back group of people.  You can drive and ride through the Hoosier 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."

"The National Drive is a stand-alone event, unique in its purpose, with a growing following of equestrians, from varied backgrounds, enjoying countless types of activities while riding and driving many different kinds of equines, all coming together to enjoy the camaraderie and non-competitive atmosphere with only two rules - be safe and have fun."
