We suggest booking ahead to avoid disappointment, as Charleston is such a popular destination for spring. In fact, we’re America’s favorite city for the fourth year in a row, as chosen by readers of Condé Nast Traveler Magazine.

Best Horses in Charleston

Kids and adults of all ages love our horses. And, our horses love treading the streets of Charleston, which have been home to horses since the late 17th century. In the 21st century, our beloved Belgian and Percheron heavy draft horses such as Big John, Prince, Dan, and Ben, are descendants of the type that have worked on farms and in cities for hundreds of years.

When they’re not vacationing at our Johns Island farm, you can visit our gorgeous horses at the Charleston Carriage Works barn before or after your horse drawn carriage ride. Here’s a comment from a recent guest, “We were there early and they let us go the barn to pet the horses and ask questions. They take very good care of the animals. I also like that they use horses as compared to mules that some others use.”
