“Living the Dream”

It is often said to me that I am living the dream. While I guess it could be perceived from the outside that indeed I am, as I grow older (and I would like to think wiser) I am beginning to realise one doesn’t actually know exactly what that dream is. If you had of […]

The coming of Age

I think the scariest thing about what we do with our horses and carriages, is doing something for the first time. Years of training, working towards a certain picture, is all put to the test in how the horse responds to a new environment or situation.  Our young Clydesdales have been working towards commercial work […]

When offering a service as we do, one is always looking for ways to improve the service. This is how we came about our next generation of greys.  There is a regular horse sale in Echuca Victoria. A lot of quality horses go through these sale yards, so if you’re a gambling person, it pays […]

Nibbles and Tabby have been washed and wine wagon decorated with happy birthday decorations.  Today’s tour is a surprise for the birthday girl, who joined her friends […]

Humble beginnings and a little horse called Calvin

We often get asked how we started our carriaging thing and I am only too happy to explain! We all have to start somewhere! Coming from a completely non harness background, even I am surprised with where this journey has taken us. I have always loved horses, when I was a teen I (perhaps stupidly) […]
