All our horses are hand selected for their calm nature and enjoyment of driving.

We generally don’t look for new horses - they tend to find us!

Our work schedule is always designed around them and certain routes around the Park can vary to keep the horses interested and in line with their fitness levels. The comfort of the horse always comes first. 

In fact, our popular 2015 summer evening trip was originally designed specifically for dad, and our legendary horses, Minos and Hector. Their combined age (dad and his boys) was 146, which called for light work in the cool evenings. 

Meet the horses

The horse is the most critical consideration in every decision made during operation of the carriages. In addition to this, since Windsor Carriages represent over 5 generations of hackney carriage drivers, the highest standards of turn out, conduct and interaction with the public are always upheld.

Ted

Our Gentleman Schoolmaster.

Ted’s owners were looking for a retirement career for their athlete and our light drives around the park promise to keep Ted fit, motivated and happy. Ted has competed and won at international carriage driving events.

 

Ted’s owner first trained horses to drive with our dad over 60 years ago so we are delighted to have him join our driving family.

Orion

Black Beauties.

Our Princes, with Orion being the older of the pair who also enjoys being driven single. Always immaculately turned out, these boys know their jobs and just want to be out in the Park.

 

Named in memory and connection to Minos & Hector, The Windsor Great Park Legends who drove for over 27 years on The Long Walk.

We take our animal welfare seriously

Hunter likes to nibble anything and everything, so far this year he has eaten the stable CCTV cables and the insulation to the outdoor pipe!
