Elegant White Horse Drawn Carriages


We provide beautiful horse drawn carriages which are uniquely designed like a convertible. On a clear day, they can be enjoyed completely open for total visibility.


As temperatures rise, so can the tops to shade passengers. In case of inclement weather, we fully enclose them with clear side curtains. Special lamps add a touch of ambiance, for an evening event.


Generally one horse is used on a carriage. As you can see here, Mickey was looking very dapper as

Michelle Wood Zanauskas and her husband Brandon drove him in the Forestville Memorial Day Parade.
