Magical Moment on my Wedding Day!

I hired Dream Horse Carriages to take me to my Wedding venue at the Bronx Museum 3 months ago on my Wedding Day. I wanted a "Wow effect" and to surprise my guests --and they sure did deliver. The earlier part of the day preparing for this day was very intense and we were running late, they were patient and arrived well in advance. The view of the two white beautiful horses galloping down the streets of the Bronx was magical. Everyone was running out of their homes, restaurants, and places of business just to take a picture of me and the horses. The children were cheering me on and it brought "happiness to my neighborhood". The horses were beautiful and the staff were well skilled with navigating around narrow areas to get me to the Wedding.

Tania was great, she too was patient and helped me work out an issue with my payment when the post office lost my mail. She was very responsive, gave me good advice and wished me well and assured me I was going to be pleased. I was beyond pleased and until this day, everyone still remembers the girl with the Horse & Carriage on my block. Thanks Tania! This was one of the best highlights. I will definitely recommend you and look forward to hiring you again in the future!

Indian wedding/Baraat

Happy Tales Pets and Dream Horse Carriages did a wonderful job for our Indian wedding/baraat. They were very professional and very pleasant to work with. On the wedding day, the horse handler showed up in decorative gear. We would definitely use this company again for future family events.
