Horse and Buggy
Enjoy the romance of riding in a horse-drawn carriage for your Wine Country wedding or wine tour thru the vineyards.

When you want to make that special moment in the wine country even more memorable, you can celebrate the event with a ride in a horse-drawn carriage. This unique experience is one you will enjoy - it is fun, relaxing, romantic and one you won't soon forget.

When in the Wine Country, riding in a horse-drawn carriage through the vineyards for a wine tour allows you to enjoy the scenic beauty of the vineyards in a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. All you need to add is a picnic lunch and a favorite bottle of wine and enjoy a unique wine tasting adventure. You will enjoy the vineyards up close and see first hand the beauty of the grapes that produce the magnificent wine country wines.

And for the romantics at heart, the romance of riding in a horse-drawn carriage is undeniable - a magical moment for a marriage proposal, or for the bride and groom and their fairy-tale wedding, or to celebrate an anniversary and spend time together with the one you love. The vision of a loving couple sharing secrets in a horse-drawn carriage is a storybook dream come true.

A horse-drawn carriage will also create a fun and picturesque impression at any of your other wine country events, including corporate events, birthdays, family reunions, retirement parties, fund-raisers, picnics, or any other get-together you have planned. A horse and buggy ride is a fun experience that the guests will remember. For many wine country guests, to ride in a horse-drawn carriage is a once-in-a-lifetime event and the memory will last a lifetime.

Types of Horses and Carriages

Depending on your event, you may wish to consider the type of horses or carriages used by a company. If you are planning an elegant wedding, you may prefer an elegant light horse. If you are taking a wine tour, you may prefer a big, slow draft horse. As carriages vary in style and size, you will want to find the one that suits your needs and fulfils your vision.

Basics to Consider when Interviewing and Contracting a Horse and Carriage Ride:

  • What are the group fees/ tour fees / wedding fees?
  • What exactly do the fees / tours include?
  • What is the minimum time and when does it go into overtime?
  • What style, size, color of carriages and horses do you have?
  • What is the dress and attire of the driver?
  • Are they licensed and fully insured?
  • Is there a back-up service they can rely on in case of an emergency?
  • If hiring for a wedding, consider if the carriage is large enough for the bride to wear her wedding dress without it getting crushed and wrinkled prior to going down the aisle.
  • Consider the locale, as it is very difficult on the horse on extreme hills, if you plan on transporting guests back and forth between venues.
  • Plan ahead and call three to six months ahead of the scheduled date, especially for weekend events.
