WELCOME to MDDA

We’re glad you stopped by to visit our website on distance driving. Perhaps you’ve just discovered MDDA and want to learn more about just what we do. Perhaps you’ve come to check the schedule to see when and where competitive drives are being held or check the results of past drives. Or perhaps you are just interested in looking at some photographs of our horses and drivers at the various competitions. Whatever the reason, thanks for browsing and drop us a line if we can answer any questions or be of service to you.

Iron Oak was a great success!

Well, another MDDA season is in the books. We had a lot of new drivers this year and hope to see them all out on the trail next year. The more the merrier! There was a wide variety of breeds and rigs, from Miniatures to Drafts, and jog carts to marathon carts.

Oct 8-9, 2016.  Although mornings were a bit chilly, by afternoon there was sunshine with a light breeze.  We had a record number of horses and riders, and overall, everyone had a great time.  The trails were very well marked, with minimal mucky spots, in spite of recent rains.    A big KUDOS to Ruth Casserly and her cadre’ of volunteers, vets, timers, P/R takers, etc. who made it happen.

We had seven drivers on Saturday, with three in the 12 mile drive and four in the 6-mile novice drive.
