Authentic 19th century coaches drawn by matched and highly-trained teams of horses will return to Newport from Aug. 20 to 23 for a Weekend of Coaching, hosted by the Preservation Society of Newport County.

Enjoy free viewing of the colorful and historic coaches every day as they drive the streets of Newport and the grounds of the Newport Mansions, celebrating and preserving a century-old sporting tradition.

Approximately a dozen coaching teams will come to Newport from around the country.
