Coming to the CAA Carriage Festival?

The 2017 CAA Carriage Classic is free and open to the public (there is a small parking fee to the KYHP). Our class line-up includes new classes like the Coach Quick Change and Double Jeopardy. We will once again have speakers on each day of the show, the concept was very well received last year and we hope you enjoy this year’s topics.
