My Lady's Manor Driving Club was founded in 1979
by a small group of local carriage driving
enthusiasts headed by Mrs. Edward C. Dukehart and
Mr. Dean Bedford. The
club takes its name from an historic tract of land
in Maryland's northeast Baltimore County and
western Harford County.
The purpose was, and still is, to "promote
the owning, training, driving, and exhibiting of
all breeds of equines; and to hold such activities
as will best contribute to those objects".
All types of horses, ponies, and vehicles are
encouraged to participate.
Throughout the year, the club sponsors various
activities which include an American Driving
Society approved pleasure driving show in May, fun
shows, clinics, Christmas party (with
carriage-related ornament exchange) and picnic
drives scheduled and organized by its members.
newsletter is sent out every other month to notify
members of club activities, as well as activities
of other clubs and organizations.
Memberships include individual and family. The
majority of our members are from Carroll,
Baltimore, Harford and York Counties, but anyone
is welcome to join. Meetings are held every other
month during the year and often include speakers
and instructional videos.
