ADS selects new host for 2018 North American Preliminary Championships 
 

Cross Plains, WI. – The American Driving Society, Inc. (ADS) has selected a new venue and date for the 2018 North American Preliminary Championships (NAPC). The Green Mountain Horse Association (GMHA) will host the championships on August 24-26, 2018 at their facility in South Woodstock, Vermont. 
 

The 2018 NAPC had previously been planned for the Hickory Knoll CDE, but due to a death in the Hickory Knoll family and relentless flooding at the event location, this year’s NAPC had to be relocated. 
 

Currently, GMHA holds the only Combined Driving Event in New England, drawing competitors in the preliminary division from Pennsylvania to Canada. GMHA staff report they eagerly await the positive attention the NAPC will bring to carriage driving in the New England area. 
 

Event co-organizer Simon Rosenman was the Technical Delegate and Scorer at the 2017 NAPC at Grand Oaks. International Course Designer Richard Nicoll will be returning for a second year, as will TD Ellen Ettenger. The ground jury includes President of the Jury Francios Bergeron, Mickie Bowen and Sem Groenewoud. 
 

Walter Bradeen, GMHA Board President, is a driver himself and is enthusiastic about the addition of this season highlight to the GMHA calendar. Preserving the art of driving is a personal mission and he is a major advocate in the growth and sustainability of the driving discipline.

GMHA is a 501c3 non-profit organization in scenic South Woodstock, VT that holds equestrian events in five disciplines. The organization is dedicated to educating equestrians of all ages and preserving trails and open space. Tracy Ostler, GMHA Executive Director said, “GMHA and its surrounding community has so much to offer as a destination. We hope that the competitors will bring their friends and families to not only spectate, but also enjoy everything that this great area has to offer. We look forward to seeing the drivers in August!”
 

The ADS (501c3) is the premier carriage driving organization in the United States educating and licensing competition officials, judges and technical delegates on a nationwide basis, along with promoting education and competition for CDE, pleasure and recreational driving. The ADS is the US Equestrian National Affiliate for Driving.
