Chariots for Hire® has been family owned and operated since 1986. Some people may remember our first endeavors at Waterside in downtown Norfolk (1986 - 1994) and Portsmouth (1994 - 1996). We closed our downtown operations to focus on special events and weddings. We moved from Chesapeake in 2000 and we now raise our horses on 50 acres out in western Suffolk. In 2007, we started Doves of Love. Doves of Love is a dove release used for weddings, special events and funerals. The birds we use are white Rock Doves. They are trained to return home. Visitors are always welcome to come and visit our horses or watch our birds fly free here on the farm.

Chariots for Hire was established in 1986. We have been training horses for over 40 years. We are family owned and operated. Our quality American made carriages are hand crafted. We have purposely stayed small to be able to pay attention to detail. Visitors are welcome to our farm in Suffolk to visit the horses and see our carriages. We also support the Silver Moon Vaulting team.
Additional Booking Notes
We suggest the carriage routes be 3 miles or under. Our horses travel about 3 miles per hour.
