Horses for hire
All of our carriage and wagons are pulled by Percheron power. Percherons are a heavy draft breed originating in La Perch, a district of Normandy, France, and were bred for heavy farm work and battle mounts in the Middle Ages. Each of our horses weights in at about 1,480 to 1,600lbs. and stand at 16.2 hands  (a hand equaling 4 inches). These are considered small for the breed since they can reach up to 19 hands.
They are known as gentle giants and live up to their name. All of our horses can be ridden, driven single or teamed up with one another. They are all experienced with street noises, city traffic and large public gatherings.
Our horses are always well groomed, wonderfully behaved and treated with great respect. Most of all they are given a lot of attention and love, which we feel is the key to their all around performance, personality and health.

His motto is: “Better slow than never.” He has experience in pulling vehicles, plowing, and performing in commercial and film work. He is a very handsome, sweet, and personable boy. (Semi retired)

A 16.2 hand, grey gelding, weighing 1,600lbs. ( Percherons that are born black will eventually turn white with age. They are called greys, If they are born brown in color, they will stay black like Brutus.)

Daniel, at the age of seven, has all ready turned pure white. Daniel has worked on the busy streets of NY as well as quiet country roads. He is beautiful, elegant, personable, and very photogenic; a favorite for weddings. Because of his willing nature, Daniel is our Baraat horse. He is completely accustomed to the commotion and festivities surrounding the Baraat and Vidia ceremonies of the Indian weddings.
