About Us

NYC Horse Carriage Rides is a family-owned & operated business.  My Father, Giuseppe and his brother started the business in 1979 after emigrating to New York City from Sicily. My name is Frank and as a child I looked up to my Father and fell in love with the family business and horses. I joined him in 2005 and I now manage the business. My Father and I book, lead the tours and operate the carriages so there are no middle-men which allows us to offer the best prices, there are no surprises or hidden costs. I can personally guarantee that our family-owned & operated business offers the best carriage ride experience in Central Park. I grew up in New York and I take great pride in sharing the history of Central Park, pointing out landmarks and the amazing Manhattan skyline. I can also guarantee that all of our customers are treated with respect, sincerity and professionalism and leave with a smile and great memories!

Our Horses

All eight of our horses were born and raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania and they are all treated as part of our family. We love them and they are healthy, happy and are well cared for by everyone in our company. They are groomed daily and see a Veterinary specialist three times a year. They also receive many treats and water breaks while working.

Back at the stables they have big beautiful stalls with straw bedding and automatic water feeders for drinking. We feed our horses fresh hay daily, along with hot/cold showers, depending on the season. They receive brand new horseshoes and trimmings by our local farrier every 4-5 weeks. By law, they receive six to twelve weeks of vacation every year on beautiful green pastures in Pennsylvania. We do not operate when temperatures reach near 19 or 89 degrees Fahrenheit or during severe weather conditions. We guarantee our horses welfare, as they are our number one priority.
