A Unique Experience

There are few places that you can experience the nostalgic feel of riding on a horse drawn carriage. It’s a traditional attraction that’s unique to the Charleston area, making it a must for you to add to your itinerary.

Not only is the ride itself unique, but so is the opportunity to pet our 2,000 pound, purebred Percheron horses. These friendly, gentle giants are truly a sight to be seen themselves. Be sure to ask your guide before petting a horse, and never approach a horse from behind, so as not to spook them.
