The Carriages

 

 

We offer a wide choice of horse drawn carriages for hire to suit every occasion.

 

Each carriage is decorated to suit your chosen colour scheme.  Most of the carriages can be drawn by either a single horse or a pair of horses, except for the Victoria, which can also be drawn by a team of four horses.  All of our carriages are attended by one or two grooms.   

 

 

 

 The Victoria. This carriage is used for weddings and other very special occasions.  It carries up to five adults and can be drawn by either a pair of horses or a team of four horses.  The hood can be raised to protect the occupants against any inclement weather, and traditionally styled side lamps can be attached for balls and other evening events.

 The Brougham.  Pronounced "broom" or "brohm", this carriage carries up to four adults and is drawn by either a single horse or a pair of horses.  It is totally enclosed with sash windows for all weather use, and it is used most often for proms, balls and other evening events.

 The Wagonette.  This elegant carriage is a less formal and more economical alternative to the larger Victoria.  It carries up to four adults and is drawn by a pair of horses.  It is very popular for weddings and proms.

 The Country Wagonette.  This carriage carries up to six adults and is drawn by either a single horse or a pair of horses.  It has easy rear access and is ideal for family outings and country rides.  Its large capacity also makes it well suited to carrying bridesmaids for weddings and for larger groups attending proms.

 The Fun Wagon.  This carriage is a favourite at fetes.  It’s very easy access combined with its low level seating, its low centre of gravity, and its pneumatic tyres makes ideal for young children (and grandmas).  

 

       

  ~

 The Trials Carriage.  This carriage is intended primarily for cross country marathon trials, but we use it extensively for training our carriage horses, and for cross country rides.

 

       

   ~

 The Vintage Victoria.  This is an original Victorian carriage, dating from about 1900.  We have used it for weddings, but it has now been superseded by the new Victoria carriage, as shown at the top of this page.
