Our carriages come with decorations, which can be customized to coordinate with your event colors. The driver and assistant come dressed in attire that relates to the event (i.e. formal for weddings, western for wagon rides, etc.), unless you have another preference. We can accommodate your needs and we operate day or night. All vehicles have lights for evening operation. The carriages have tops that can be put up for that sunny day or intimate evening.
Your safety and the safety of our horses are our utmost concern. Our horses are well trained and experienced in traffic. However, we do not take unnecessary chances. We ask that you do not request your carriage ride on roads with a speed limit over 35 mph otherwise we will require a police escort. We can help find an alternative route. We serve all of Central Florida and surrounding areas.

How far ahead do I need to book?
To insure that you get the date that you want, you should book at least 12 weeks in advance. However, always call or e-mail in case we have a cancellation and are available on your date.
What area do you serve?
We serve all of Central Florida. Outside of Central Florida may be serviced for an additional mileage fee. Please call or email us for more information on the locations we serve.
Do we need special permits?
No. The horse and carriage has the same “rights” to the road as any other vehicle. If you are having an event within a homeowners association, you should check with them to see if you require a permit.
How far can we travel in the carriage?
A thirty minute ride covers about 2 miles. In order to allow time for pictures, etc. the longest distance you should travel is 3 miles. You don’t want your guests waiting too long at the reception for the arrival of the bride and groom.
When does my time start?
Your time with the horse and carriage begins when we arrive at the time and destination requested on your contract.
What if I want to extend the time of the horse and carriage?
If you should need additional time, a fair rate can be discussed. The horse and carriage is booked for a minimum of 2 hours.
Does the carriage have a top?
The carriage has a folding top that can be put up if desired. It gives about as much protection as an umbrella from the rain.
What about gratuities?
Although gratuities are greatly appreciated by the driver, they are between you and the driver and are not included in the price quotes.
Do you always have a driver and attendant?
We always come in pairs.
