Summer Driving CT & Combined Driving Event (CDE)

22 Aug - 25 Aug

Cheryl & River

Event Details

The CDE (Combined Driving Event) is modeled after the Three Day Event, which tests the overall condition and versatility of the horse in sport. Major competitions are usually held over three days: day 1) Driven Dressage; day 2) Cross Country Marathon; day 3) Cones Driving Competition. Penalty points are incurred in each of the above phases and the winner is the entry who accumulates the fewest points. The first CDE in the USA was held in New Brunswick, NJ, in the early to mid 1970’s.  This year, GMHA offers a Combined Test (Dressage & Cones) in addition to the CDE.

  • Thursday – Combined Test
  • Friday – CDE Dressage
  • Saturday – CDE Marathon Day
  • Sunday – CDE Cones

Camping on-site is available for GMHA members.  All horses must be stabled.  See omnibus prize list for more details or contact the event secretary listed below.

Horse Health Requirements

**ADS requires Flu/Rhino vaccination dated within 6 months of the competition**

GMHA requires a negative Coggins and proof of rabies vaccination within 12 months for each horse that comes on the property.  Rabies titers are accepted within one year of event date and must accompany a note from your veterinarian explaining the reason why the vaccine could not be administered.

Please note that the State of Vermont requires a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection within 30 days or Exhibition Permit from the Vermont Agency of Agriculture’s Animal Health office for any horses entering the state. GMHA does not require these documents with entry, but the VT Agency of Agriculture may enforce these regulations at any time.
