HORSE DRAWN CARRIAGES

 

For over twenty five years now we have offered our very unique  horse-drawn carriage service to the central coast. We have a number of carriages from which to choose. From a surrey that can carry 2 guests to a wagonette that carries up to 12 guests. The very well maintained vehicles and horses, highly polished harnesses and turn-of-the-century tuxedos give your event a true touch of class. All of our carriages are clean & suitable transportation for even the most well-dressed of guests. These carriages have been seen everywhere, from the small streets of Carmel-by-the-Sea to the busy arteries of Salinas. The horses are very friendly and are used to loud music, dancing, curious guests and even bagpipes. The driver and assistant can be dressed in western attire or turn-of -the-century tuxedo and top hat. For the finest horse drawn carriage ride in Central California call Monterey Bay Equestrian Center. (Please click on the blue carriage names below to see photos)
