Are carriage rides available rain or shine?

Because the comfort of our horses is a top priority, we suspend carriage operations during certain weather conditions. We don’t allow our horses to work in excess heat and humidity (89° F and above) or extreme cold (19° F and below).

During wintertime, carriages run on cleared streets and Park pathways. If it rains or snows, or if there is heavy wind or thunderstorms, we keep our horses inside.

Should we tip your driver?

Tips are not included in the price of a ride. We encourage you to leave a standard 15% to 20% gratuity for our driver after you’ve had a good experience.

Our horses love tips too! Feel free to bring them a carrot or apple treat.
