Booking in Advance

Private trail rides are cut off for online booking 24 hours in advance. Call us at 570-839-8725 with any day-of booking questions. If you do not see availability online for the date and time you’d like to book, then all rides are full. We do not provide availability via e-mail.

For carriage rides, please book well in advance. This applies especially if your event is during the peak summer season on a weekend, so we can best accommodate you.

We typically don’t require a deposit to reserve private trail rides or the carriage rentals. Please pay at your time of service. If you’d like a receipt for the carriage rides, you can put a credit card on file with us in advance when you reserve your rental.

Are there restrictions to where the carriage can go?

The carriage usually requires a paved or very smooth surface, because the wheels can get stuck in soft ground. If you’re not sure if your venue will work for this purpose, we can set up a meeting beforehand with you and our carriage driver so you can be sure we can meet your needs.

Can we decorate the carriage?

Yes, you’re welcome to decorate the carriages or we can provide our standard decorations of artificial flowers. All decorations must be approved first.

Are the carriages heated?

No, the carriages are not heated. Although they have roofs, they are open-air and weather can get in if it’s raining or snowing.

Do you operate all year long?

Yes, we operate all year round for trail rides and carriage rentals. Trail rides can be done in all weather conditions, except emergency weather situations. The carriages cannot operate if there’s too much snow or ice. June through October is generally the best time to book our carriage rentals.
