Dress Rehearsal for our Cinderella Coach

We have spent over two years designing our Cinderella Coach to our exact specifications and then finding the right carriage builder for the job. Our goal was to keep the coach as elegant and timeless as possible, it had to be scaled to accommodate our trailer for enclosed shipping ( we don’t arrive any event with dirty carriages) and it had to accommodate a variety of horses. With a creamy white powdercoat paint,  gold pin striping, and polished brass accents,  we think it actually turned out above our expectations!  a few snapshots from our first dress rehearsal! We can’t wait to get this carriage infront of a professional photographer!

Bookings are being accepted for 2018/2019 subject to availability please call 772-285-3480

 

 

Cinderella is going to be Jealous!

Our Fairy Godmother and her helpers have been very busy the last few months building our one-of-a-kind Cinderella style pumpkin Carriage!  Its amazingly elegant and can be drawn by 1 of our majestic Clydesdale Horses, a pair of horses, or even a team of 4 or 6 elegant white carriage horses!  ~ just like the Cinderella Movie!

 

They are just finishing up with the last details and then the Carriage will be making its way over a 1100 miles South to our Farm!  We can already imagine this carriage will be a popular choice for weddings, parties, and all types of special events!

This is to our knowledge the only Cinderella style Carriage with a team of 4 white horses available in Florida (outside the gates of Disney World) We are accepting bookings now!

When Should You Book Your Wedding Carriage?

If you’re planning a wedding in South Florida, you know that the best wedding vendors get their schedules filled up very quickly. Simply put… to get the best, you need to book early.

When it comes to booking your wedding transportation, you need to act early if you want the fairy-tale carriage you’ve been dreaming about. In fact, booking your horse-drawn wedding carriage should be one of the first things you book. Once you have selected your date and venue, you can book your transportation.

Even if your Ceremony and Reception are in the same location  ( i.e. a county club) you will still want to make sure you have that special carriage selected for your photos and those few memorable moments alone with your newly married sweetheart!

We regularly book six to ten months in advance, and if you want your first choice of carriage, it’s certainly worth getting in touch with Wind Chase Farm right away. While there is always the chance that your date will be available, it’s a big risk to run for such an important day. Off-season wedding dates do have less demand, but it’s still always a good idea to book as early as possible.

Not sure which carriage or horses are right for you? We welcome you to schedule a time to come out to Wind Chase Farm in Palm City, Florida and meet the horses in person. You are also free to inspect our carriages and determine which is the perfect turnout for your BIG day.

To find out more about our carriages and book your preferred carriage for your South Florida wedding, give us a call at 772-285-3480 today!

What Exactly is a Welsh Pony and why are they a perfect choice for my special event?

Because we often get asked about them:

EARLY HISTORY & HERITAGE of Welsh Ponies:
The original home of the Welsh Mountain Pony was in the hills and valleys of Wales. He was there before the Romans. His lot was not an easy one…winters were severe and vegetation was sparse. Shelter, most often was an isolated valley or a clump of bare trees. Yet the Welsh pony managed not only to survive, but to flourish. Led by proud stallions, bands of mares and their foals roamed in a semi-wild state climbing mountains, leaping ravines, running over rough terrain. Hence, the development of a pony with a remarkable soundness of body, tremendous endurance and a high degree of native intelligence. Down through the years, the Welsh pony and cob has served many masters. On the upland farms of Wales, Welsh Cobs would often have to do everything from plowing a field to carrying a farmer to market or driving a family to church on Sunday. Welsh ponies have been pampered by royalty and served on the farms of the poor. That the Welsh pony carries a trace of Arabian blood seems beyond a doubt. However, he has maintained his own dominant physical characteristics over the years. It has been demonstrated that Welsh crosses well with many other breeds, and this is, to breeders, an important aspect of his unusual versatility.
The Welsh Pony & Cob Society was founded in 1901 in Wales. All Welsh ponies and cobs found in the United States are descended entirely from animals registered with The Welsh Pony & Cob Society in the UK.

GROWTH OF THE BREED IN AMERICA
While Welsh ponies were imported to America as early as the 1880’s, the Welsh Pony and Cob Society of America was not established as a breed registry until 1907. Interest in the breed dropped during the depression years, but through the combined efforts of breeders, particularly those in the East, participation in shows and fairs continued. By the 1950’s the numbers of members grew, more ponies were imported and interest increased dramatically. Over the next few decades Welsh became the fastest growing breed in America. Registered Welsh ponies and cobs can be found in every state and also in Canada. To date, over 45,000 Welsh ponies and cobs have been registered.
USES OF THE VERSATILE WELSH PONY
The Welsh breed is ideal for the growing child and has the spirit and endurance to challenge an adult. Today Welsh ponies and cobs can be found competing in nearly every discipline…hunters, driving, dressage, combined training, combined driving, English & Western pleasure and heavy harness.
