Let us help you find just the right items for:
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 European built carriages. We are especially proud to be the sole United States distributor for Excellent Carriages (Netherlands). We also sell Ideal harness, Arden harness, Fleck whips and driving cones.
We 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 visit our booth to discuss your specifications! We're happy to assist with custom or specialized orders, in addition to discussing our in-stock inventory.
Carriage Imports is also a sponsor of the Saturday wine and cheese party - please thank them when you stop by!
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.
Driving Digest also sponsors our coffee and donuts! Please thank Ann Pringle when you see her.

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.
