Come see horses of every size, shape, and color hitched to elegant carts and carriages as they compete for division championships at the Wade House Carriage Driving Days.

Spectators will be able to take a horse-drawn wagon ride from the Wade House Visitor Center and Wesley W. Jung Carriage Museum, over to the competition ring where they will enjoy watching many different breeds of horses hitched to all types of carriages; antiques, reproductions and modern vehicles will be shown. Visitors can sit right next to the ring and watch the action up close, feeling the footfalls of the horses as they steam around the ring showing off their different gaits at the subtle command of their drivers. 

A historic stagecoach stop between Sheboygan and Fond du Lac, the Wade House was a welcome respite to weary travelers. Now, this Wisconsin Historical Society site will once again be host to horses and carriages much like it was in the 1850s. Ladies wearing elegant hats and gentlemen in dapper boaters will drive their horses in a series of competitive classes designed to test the skills of the drivers and the athleticism of the horses. The devil is in the details of this equestrian competition, as drivers try to impress the expert American Driving Society certified judges to win the coveted blue ribbon.

Location: Wade House (W7965 State Hwy 23, Greenbush, WI)

Wade House, an 1850s stagecoach inn built to serve traffic along the plank road that connected Fond du Lac and Sheboygan, tells the story of frontier entrepreneur Sylvanus Wade and his family during the Civil War years.

In addition to the inn, the historic site includes the recently reconstructed Herrling sawmill, one of the few working, water-powered sawmills of its kind in the nation. Wade House is also home to the Wesley Jung Carriage Museum, which houses the state's largest collection of antique carriages and working wagons.
