2019 Horse-drawn Vehicle Display
Minnesota Whips and Wheels Carriage Society (Whips and
Wheels), in junction with St Croix Horse and Carriage Society, are local clubs
with a mission to provide education to club members and the public regarding
the driving horse and their carts, carriages and harnesses. The clubs are proud to be represented at the
MN Horse Expo and to provide education regarding carts, carriages and sleighs that
are hitched to the driving horse. The
sport of driving provides hours of fun in all the various seasons in Minnesota,
including “Riding in a one-horse open sleigh”.
Please stop by our booth and display area in the Swine
Barn and take a look at the various vehicles that are pulled by our driving
equines. Club members will be present to
answer any questions you have or show you around the carriages. We look forward to seeing you at the Whips
and Wheels booth.
