Horses are like potato chips

What? PC

We tell ourselves all the time “we have too many horses“. After all  it is a ton of work taking care of 11 horses 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year! The expense is also quite hefty considering that our largest horses can eat over 50 lbs of hay a day and in Florida we pay about $625 per ton for good quality timothy hay. and thats just the beginning.

And then we are occasionally reminded…. If one of our horses gets unexpectedly hurt or sick….. we can take the time to give that horse some TLC down time and still keep our commitments and business operating as usual.  Wind Chase Farm currently has 11 exquisite horses to choose from and its what guarantees we will arrive with horse(s) and carriage on your special day….. Think of it as your Insurance Policy!

So when your looking to hire a professional Carriage Company for your special day, this would be a good question to ask… “how many horses do they have and what happens if one or two are sick or injured?”

Beachside Wedding at The Breakers

It was Tiffany’s dream to have a romantic horse-drawn carriage for her Grand Entrance. Well I think we pulled that off!  This is truly a classic elegant turnout for an amazing couple and we couldn’t have had a more stunning location. The Breakers in Palm Beach is truly magnificent!

Questions to ask when hiring a Baraat horse service provider.

No South Asian wedding is complete without a Baraat! It’s even more spectacular when you have a beautifully adorned Ghodi (white female horse), especially if traditional vibes are your thing. But you can’t expect just anyone with a horse to show up and provide you with a safe and reliable mount for the Groom! – just like with anything else, do your homework and research the different providers and ask questions.

THE QUESTIONS:

I’m a little afraid of horses. Can I come meet the horse and possibly do a small ride to see if I really want this for my wedding day?

Are your horses adjusted to loud noises and music? This includes a DJ playing loud music or a dholi playing their drum?

How will I get onto the Ghodi (Baraat horse) on the day of the wedding?

A small child might be riding with me on the horse during the Baraat; is that ok?

Will the horse be in a regular saddle or dressed up in a traditional costume as a Ghodi (baraat horse)?

Does  the Baraat horse service provider own the traditional Ghodi costume(s)? If so ask the provider to see current pictures of it.  do you have the option to select which costume you prefer? is this included in the fee?

What will the horse handler(s) wear? and how many handlers will accompany the horse or horses?

How early do you (the Provider) arrive before the event starts?

Have you (the Provider) serviced at my venue before? If not, will you  find out the logistics of the venue beforehand?

Do you (the provider) have a carriage as well if we wanted to use it for the Vidai/doli (bridal send-off)?

How many Indian/South Asian weddings do you do per year? How much experience do you have? Read the companies reviews!

Is your horse reliably safe in the presence of drones? and a dancing crowd? Do you have video?

What is the cost? Is it hourly or a flat fee?

What is included in the cost?

Are there any additional fees?

What if our Baraat starts late?

What happens if I cancel? What happens if you cancel?

Do you own your horses… how many?  costumes? and carriages? or do you subcontract the work out?

Do you have liability insurance? Is there a additional fee for Insurance Certificates if requested by the Venue? by the City/Town? By the Event Planner?
