My sister, Debbie, and I began our carriage service 12 years ago, however, our experience with horses spans our lifetime.  We began riding before we could sit up unassisted.  We rode in a mounted drill team and performed all over the state in rodeos and horse shows as well as competing in barrel racing and timed events.  We enjoy trail-riding and trail-rides are still our family vacations

OUR HORSES
Our horses are more than just animals that we hook up to our wagons and carriages.  Each one is carefully evaluated for not only physical soundness, but for a kind nature and a reliable performance history, but also for their friendliness and safety around children.  Our horses are cherished family members.  They interact with our grandchildren and when not working, they receive lots of brushing and hugs and kisses. 
We strive to make sure that we do not work our horses in adverse weather conditions and do not accept events that would require them to work in inclement weather or extreme temperatures.

CASH and KOLBY
Cash and Kolby are the children’s party specialist team.  They have been with us since they were 2 and 1.5 years old respectively.  Cash is a blonde Belgian draft horse and Kolby is a black Percheron.  They are very steady and careful around the little ones.  Kolby is every child’s best buddy.  He loves children and will lower his big head nearly to the ground for hugs and kisses.  Our biggest issue with him is that he wants to join the party and enjoy cake and ice cream with the other guests!
JOY and IRIS
Joy and Iris are a team of black Percheron mares.  They are full sisters and look so much alike they c could be twins.  They came to us several years ago from a very good friend in the carriage world that had to retire due to health issues.  He allowed them to come to us with the promise they could retire with us.  Joy and Iris are very steady and willing workers.  While we used them for every sort of event possible, they are not the grandchildren’s playmates that Cash and Kolby are.
