The ABC's of CDE's

So, have you heard about driving cde's? Once you discover this exciting and challenging sport, you'll probably be just as hooked as me! There's lots of interest brewing in Memphis about cde's! There's even a junior driving CDE clinic this Saturday, January 12 at Kimberlin Farms-lucky kids!

CDE's are like eventing, but carriage driving rather than riding. It consists of three phases, like an event. The three phases of carriage driving CDE's are:

  1. Dressage
  2. Cross Country Marathon with Hazards- comparable to eventing cross country phase
  3. Cones competition- comparable to eventing stadium jumping phase
