Katydid CAI ** Aiken
Combined Driving Event 2019

Now in its 16th year, the Katydid CDE continues to be one of the top driving events in the southeast and the largest show of its kind in South Carolina. Recognized by the FEI as well as the USE and ADS, Katydid CDE is one of the few international competitions in North America. This is a special kind of horse-and-carriage triathlon, featuring dressage, cross-country, and obstacle driving, requiring elegance, finesse, speed, and agility of horse and driver.

Katydid CDE has been selected to host the 2019 USEF Advanced Single Horse Combined Driving Championships and the 2019 ADS North American Intermediate Combined Driving Championships.

We are pleased to renew our association with the Aiken Land Conservancy, dedicated to preserving the area’s natural beauty. Our signature Sunday Brunch will benefit the Aiken Land Conservancy. Ticket information available at or call 1-855-ALC-LAND.

We will also offer a limited number of reserved parking spots near the exciting water obstacle, for those who want to organize tailgating parties.

Won’t you join us at this unique and special event? We would welcome you as a competitor, volunteer, sponsor, advertiser, or spectator.
