  • The CanDrive driving camps are very inexpensive 6 days driving camps devoted to recreational and competition equine drivers from all over the world. Driving and driving lessons, demonstrations and clinics are only part of the CanDrive driving camps because there is so much more: scheduled trips to natural hot springs, driving beautiful trails in the Canadian Rocky Mountains and getting together with fellow driving enthusiasts - plus much more! Each camp will host 50-55 turnouts so you will be part of a group of 80-90 people [drivers, friends and helpers]

    Highlighting the camps are a series of clinics, demonstrations and driving lessons featuring prominent clinicians and driving experts. Participants can attend all or none of our scheduled events – the only thing required is that one passes a safety check. Participants can drive at will from dawn to dusk. Lessons are given every morning and the rest of the day will be used for private lessons, trail drives, clinics and other activities.

    Of course all breeds and all sizes are welcome: from minis to draft horses and everything in between, mules and donkeys.

  • The CanDrive camps will provide a great opportunity for recreational driving, improving your driving skills and improving the animal[s] you drive and also for exploring beautiful British Columbia and enjoying the magnificent Canadian Rocky Mountains. Be part of a group of equine driving enthusiasts from North America and Europe – a unique experience you will never forget!

    At the end of the camp: you will be a better driver, your equine companion will have learned a lot and you will go home with a million 'best memories'!

    The CanDrive camps are hosted by "House of the Friesians". The House of The Friesians is located just outside the town of Invermere, BC, Canada, in the heart of the Canadian Rocky Mountains [near Banff]. This is a spectacular area for driving! CanDrive can be combined with a visit to the famous Calgary Stampede and Spruce Meadows and which are both in Calgary.

    So.... can we say "See you at CanDrive??"
