Gif Horses Gif

We share our back yard in Oakley with our Haflinger horses. Each has a large stall with rubber matting on the floor and shavings changed regularly. We also have extra large turnout paddocks for the horses so they can frolic and exercise together, as horses are social animals. The horses have a beautiful view of Mt. Diablo from their paddocks.

Fancy Ferriage uses a pair or a single carriage horse. These carriage horses like to travel at a rate of 4 to 6 MPH. Each of our horses receives extensive training before they are allowed to participate in events. Only those horses that have a temperament suited to the work pass the training. Every horse is bathed and groomed prior to each event. All of our horses are shod or trimmed by an experienced professional in order to protect their feet and provide them with traction on pavement. They wear diapers to protect the pavement from the horses.

Gif Carriages and Drivers Gif

Our Vis--vis Carriage (White with royal blue upholstery) is an exquisite reproductions of elegant carriages, which was brought to America from France in the early 1800s. It has velvet upholstery and convertible top.

We also have a surrey with a fringe on top!

Upon request we will provide:

  • Just Married, Just Hitched, or Heading to the Wedding signs for the back of the carriages.
  • Carriage decorated with your flowers or streamers.

Carriages are appropriately decorated for holidays, and can be fully enclosed during inclement weather.

Our Drivers and Coachmen have had years of training and experience. They take a great deal of pride in presentation, execution of their duties and in the spotless condition of horse, carriage, tack and their own costumes. The costumes range from formal top hat and tails to western, what ever best suits the occasion.
