We left the Laurels on Monday morning, stopping off at Jack Day’s in Maryland to tour his impressive carriage collection (stay tuned for a future article in Driving Digest) and then arrived home Tuesday afternoon. Now Thursday finds me in Edinburgh, Indiana for the National Drive. It is being held here at the Hoosier Horse Park (home of the Indiana CDE) this year only due to the WEG taking the National Drive’s date – imagine that!
As I pulled in, already there were many drivers enjoying the extensive driving opportunities the horse park has to offer. I’ve yet to see much, but hope to tomorrow. The winds were strong, but the vendors are safely housed in the indoor arena – safe from the elements. The forecast is for temps in the 80s, but no rain. The ‘staff’ was ready to inspect all turnouts and give them their sticker of approval. At the end of the day all gathered in the indoor for wine and cheese and to enjoy live music.
