Vintage Carriage has been giving carriage tours through Highland Park since 2005. All our carriages are pulled by two percherons. We only use teams of horses, not single horses. This is more expensive and labor intensive, it also doesn't allow us to run more carriages at a time. However, we feel teams are more impressive and also makes the work easier on the horses.
Vintage Carriage also owns all their horses and carriages. We do not subcontract with other individuals or companies. The only exception to that rule is at times we do a lease a team of horses at Christmas time from dear friends of ours in Louisiana. This is so we have a spare team to rotate in and out to give more down time for our horses during this busy time of year.
Vintage Carriage has also been upgrading our carriages. Just this year we acquired three new carriages to give our customers a more luxurious ride. The three carriages are made by notable carriage makers Troyer and Raber.
Vintage Carriage offers many different
kinds of carriages to suit our customers needs. We have carriages that seat from 4 to 20 people. So whether you want an intimate carriage ride, or a big group of friends, we have you covered.
We are so happy to see all our repeat customers this year. We are so lucky to do what we love. We have amazing employees, amazing horses and have been blessed with amazing customers. All are like family.
