How does the horse and carriage get to my event?

Both the horse and the carriage are transported by truck & trailer to your event, and then hitched up on-site.

What happens if the weather is rainy, cold or hot?

Our horses are happy to pull the carriage in all types of weather.  The carriage also has a convertible top that can be brought up to provide added protection for the passengers from the elements.

Is it hard for a horse to pull a carriage?

Is it okay to feed the horse?

We are happy to accept a treat for our horses and promise to give it to them after they are out of the harness. Hand feeding horses can encourage nipping.  Since our horses are around the public so much, we don’t want them associating any part of a person’s body with something yummy.

Is there a deposit required?

There is a $150 non-refundable deposit required to reserve your date and time.

What payment methods do you currently accept?
