About Us

The Best of Iowa in Traces Society (BITS) was formed in 2003 to promote carriage driving in Iowa. 

The purpose is accomplished through educational activities and the sponsorship of carriage-driving shows and events focused on helping members improve their driving skills. Examples of such events include a practice pleasure driving show, speakers on topics directly related to carriage driving, like shoeing, carriage selection, and training tips. 

BITS is a nonprofit corporation registered with the Iowa Secretary of State. 

The club hosts several events and meeting throughout the year.  The largest event is the Skunk River Driving Trial each June.
