No horsing around at Carriage Driving Competition in Pittsford
PITTSFORD, N.Y. -- The 46th annual "Walnut Hill Carriage Driving Competition" in Pittsford is a real horse race of a different sort.
Organizers say competitors from around the world come well-equipped with a variety of carriages and horses.
Drivers are judged on their skill and their use of history through the 1890s attire and carriages.
This year’s competition features more than 200 horses and 100 competitors from the U.S., Canada and one 17-year-old rider from Bermuda.
"It's loads of stuff that I would not be able to get back at home. Now, I take it back home and perfect it more," said Kiwon Waldron, Bermuda.
The horses are available to meet their adoring public in the stables.
The competition runs through this weekend.
Admission costs up to $12.
