So as a little girl, I dreamed of arriving at my own wedding in a horse drawn carriage. At some point, I must have shared this dream with my parents, because they remembered!
In 2012 I married a wonderful man and was under the impression that I was getting driven to the church in an aunt and uncle’s car – they’d even cleaned it up and organised the traditional wedding ribbon! You can imagine my surprise when I stepped out of my parents’ front door and heard ‘clip clop, clip clop’!
I got my dream of being taken to the church in a horse drawn carriage and loved it.
For those who have a passion for carriage work with horses, there are a few business opportunities to consider. These include (but are not limited to):
- Carriage rides to weddings
- Touristic rides around historical towns or in the city
- Horse drawn hearses for funerals
One such business in the United Kingdom provides horse drawn carriages for the first and last services on the above list. You can check them out at Clayton Carriage Masters.
