Due to the ongoing impact of COVID together with rising costs, my little micro business has become unsustainable and I am regretfully having to close it. I will be contacting people who have paid DEPOSITS or who have bought GIFT CERTIFICATES in the near future. Please contact me with your bank details if you are one of these


Enjoy superb views to Mount Macedon and Hanging Rock from a horse drawn carriage.

LOCATION: Carlsrhue.  Rides leave from ‘Hedge Farm’* at 124 Three Chain Road, Carlsruhe (near Chaser’s Lane and about 3 kilometres from the Calder Highway turnoff.) *Hedge Farm is an independent Accommodation, Function Centre & Gallery. Separate from Yesteryear Today Carriages.

THE CARRIAGES: Ride in a comfortable covered picnic wagon which takes 4 average sized adults plus 3-4 young children. Easy to enter for with two low steps and hand rails. A barrier can be zipped up between the driver and your household party. Rugs are provided OR ride in an 1890s buggy which takes up to 3 average sized (and agile) adults.

THE HORSES: The horses  are Percheron Cross breeds. Patrick is grey and Laura is black. Both have retired from city carriage work and are experienced with lovely friendly personalities. You can bring an apple or carrot as a reward for your horse after your ride and photos with the horses are encouraged!

COVID PROTOCOLS: Masks must be worn, passengers need to sign in and complete an insurance waiver. Sanitiser is provided. It is with heavy heart that we have to say no to Metropolitan residents at this time.

BOOKINGS: there is a $20 deposit to make a booking which is fully refundable (or we can change the date if you prefer) should COVID prevent a ride from going ahead.

GIFT VOUCHERS: are valid for 12 months from issue and fully refundable if I am unable to proceed with a ride for any reason. If COVID prevents a voucher from being used within 12 months, the time may be extended at our discretion or the money refunded.
