One-Of-A-Kind Vis-a-vis Carriage
Our beautiful vis-a-vis carriage has old world charm and the hand-tufted emerald green velvet interior goes well with all color schemes. Our hand-made carriage was built by Amish craftsman who have been internationally recognized as being one of the top carriage builders.
Carriages and Horses
Weddings, elegant events, anniversaries, special occasions, parades, quinceaneras, and funerals. No matter what the occasion we can help make it a memorable event. Our horses are freshly groomed the day of your event and the mane & tail are professional braided incorporating white silk flowers or silk flowers matching your color scheme, if you provide them. Our carriage seats four normal size adults very comfortably. Our carriages are pulled by a majestic Percheron draft horse with years of experience. The carriage top can be open, partially covered, or put completely up for bad weather. Carriages travel 15-20 minutes per mile, traffic permitting.
A beautiful horse drawn carriage is a memorable experience for all! Our Percheron draft horses have quiet dispositions and are very people oriented.
