Hundley Carriages, Inc., appreciates your interest in our horse-drawn carriages and welcomes your inquiries. Feel free to contact us via phone (804.743.9233), fax (804.743.1599) or e-mail (info@hundleycarriages.com).

Here are our answers to the questions we most often encounter:

1. What happens in cases of inclement weather?

Most of our carriages have convertible tops which will protect our passengers.  However, if severe weather is threatening, you may cancel by 7 am the morning of the event.  A refund, excluding the deposit, will be issued for inclement weather only.

2. How much time should I allow for the carriage ride?

Our carriage horses trot at approximately six miles per hour. At this rate, it takes about 30 to 45 minutes to travel a distance of four miles. Wedding carriages should limit their total riding distance to no more than six miles so guests will not be kept waiting for an excessive amount of time.

3. Can the horses be driven in street traffic?

Yes, they have been specially trained by our experienced drivers to ride in busy traffic. Hundley Carriages, Inc., is fully insured and permitted to drive on any public road, except those highways where slow-moving vehicles are prohibited. A police escort is not required.

4. Are beverages allowed in the carriage?

Special occasions often call for a toast! We will be happy to keep your beverage chilled for you during the carriage ride. High-fluted glasses are strongly recommended to minimize spills. Please help us protect our carriage interiors by not smoking or drinking dark-colored beverages.

5. How do I reserve a carriage?

Just go to the Contract link on this Web site and print a copy of our simple contract. If you have any questions when filling it out, please call for assistance. Mail the completed contract with a check, made payable to Hundley Carriages, Inc., for $200 or 25% of the total, if that sum is greater. We will review the contract to make sure that your date is available and your requests are possible. The contract will then be signed and returned to you. This reserves your special occasion on our calendar. The remaining balance is due two weeks prior to your date.
