Carolina Carriages provides Wedding and Special Event Horse and Carriage Service to the Northern Outer Banks from Corolla to Hatteras, Northeastern North Carolina and Tidewater, Virginia. We want to make your special day even better. Carolina Carriages can provide a romantic and old fashioned horse and carriage ride for a day to remember.
Prices are determined by date, time, location and the number of horses/carriages you are requesting or are required and the nature of your event. Our fee covers all preparation, set up, travel time and much more.
What is involved
Although the actual time to service your event may be 45 minutes to 2 hours, the amount of time involved for us to prepare for your event is about 6 to 8 hours or more. We bath and groom the horse(s), braid and use ribbons in the mane and tail, harness up, load carriage and horse in trailer, drive the truck and trailer to your location, park in a suitable location, unload the horse(s) and carriage, hook up the horse(s) to the carriage, ensure the coachman and footman are dressed to the nines including top hat and tails, and be ready at least a half hour before you need us. All this happens in reverse after the event is over and we make sure our horses are comfortable, fed, watered, groomed and turned out to relax. After all, the horses are what make this special. On a regular daily basis, we take care of the horses, including feeding, grooming, as well as make sure they have regular visits from the farrier and vet.
When we travel off site
We have a truck and trailer, which are specially designed to transport our horses and carriage. When we arrive, we discreetly set up everything 'out of site'. We will be ready to serve you at the time and location that you have specified on our Agreement.
How far do we travel
The horses are located at Harvest Moon Farm in Camden, NC on the mainland, but we will transport them to the Outer Banks, from Corolla to Manteo, and to Hatteras or Virginia with a mileage surcharge. Service is also available on the mainland within a 100 mile radius of Elizabeth City. For the sake of our horses, we prefer to stay within a 100 mile maximum radius from the farm.
How many hours will you need
Packages include a time frame of a half hour to two hours. A horse drawn carriage is ideal for short distances. Therefore, as you travel at a relaxed pace, you are able to enjoy your special day. Allow approx. 15- 20 min. per mile and keep travel distance within a two- three mile radius. Be sure to allot enough time for photos with the carriage,and/or travel time to your event. If two hours is not enough for your event, you can reserve an extra hour or two for $200 an hour. If several hours are required, we will change out horses to keep them fresh.
We go above and beyond
Two courteous drivers are outfitted in tuxedos and top hats. For a wedding or special event, if desired a sparkling beverage will be served to 'celebrate the moment! Knowing the best angles to photograph a horse and carriage, your driver/attendant will work as a team to ensure your photographer gets 'the perfect pictures'!
