We host two major competitive events every year; the My Revelation Carriage Classic which is an ADS recognized pleasure driving show, and the Longview By The Lake Driving Trial, also ADS recognized.

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US

The Carriage and Driving Society of Greater Kansas City is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. We consist of volunteers representing various equine breeds, driving disciplines and associations.  Our mission is to promote horse-drawn carriage driving through scheduled recreational drives, competitions, clinics and seminars.

Charitable donations, used to support our mission, can be made through the MY REVELATION CARRIAGE CLASSIC form or online through our online DONATION link.

ABOUT OUR EVENTS

The annual Fuzzbuster Schooling Show is set for May 2nd, 2020.  Find more information on this great show and a show bill under our events tab.

Longview Horse Park has a rich history with Kansas City. Longview Lake and the surrounding park was a farmstead of the Long family. The daughter, Loula Long-Combs, was one of the first women to show driving horses in the early 1900s and the first to show at Madison Square Garden.

Longview Lake and Park is built on much of the former Longview Farm, which was known as “Missouri’s Show Place” when lumber baron R.A. Long built it for his daughter Loula in 1913.

To read more about this exciting sport please check out our Laymans Guide to Combined Driving.

Each year we organize driving clinics and seminars.  Check our events tab often for more information on the coming year’s events!

Beautiful Longview Horse Park is a perfect location for the first nationally recognized Carriage Pleasure Show in our area. Loula Long Combs drove her champion carriage horses here in the heyday of Longview Farm, bringing home trophies from all over the United States and Europe. Loula was the first woman to show her horses at Madison Square Garden.

It is fitting to dedicate this show to the outstanding driving heritage she represents. So, in her honor, our show carries the name of her favorite driving horse, Revelation.
