Welcome to the fifth presentation of The Great Lakes Carriage Classic (GLCC) in this year of 2023. The objective is to provide a diverse range of driving enthusiasts with a Canadian experience to show their equine partners and encourage Junior and Para Drivers to participate.
Returning to a three-day show with Dressage and CDE Cones, officials for this ADS Recognized Show are Larry Brinker-CDE Judge from British Columbia, Ruth Graves-Pleasure Judge from Texas and Dana Bright-TD from Pennsylvania. The Great Lakes Carriage Classic enters this year as a stand-a-lone entity with Not-for-Profit status, championed by Jean McLean, Show Manager with Valerie Williams, Show Secretary. Thank to our supporters for helping to build a solid foundation from which to expand offerings and continue in years to come.
