Carriage Rides

 

The feeling of stepping back a hundred years in time,
the romance of being a king and queen on a carriage, the beauty of enjoying a horse experience without having to actually ride a horse. All this and much more is possible with a horse drawn carriage.
We are happy to announce that we now finally have a carriage available for rides for the public. We DONT yet do weddings or other events on location.
However for fun rides, romantic rides, proposals, and photo shoots here at our farm and the nearby surrounding area we are available.

Hopefully in time we will be able do weddings on location and other exciting and romantic packages. For now though, the following are our base packages:
