Horse and Carriage Rentals
Creating Memories to Last a Lifetime!
Wisteria Hill Plantation, Inc. is proud to be the CSRA’s premiere horse drawn carriage ride company. Horse drawn Carriages are a wonderful way to make a special event fun and memorable. Established in 1988, we are licensed, bonded, insured, and have an outstanding safety record. With well over 20 years of combined professional equine and business services, we are committed to providing our customers with memorable experiences that will last a lifetime.
We have unique, well trained Draft Horses with plenty of PERSONALITY! Our horses and carriages have traveled throughout the south leaving lasting impressions on the guests we have served. Our horses are definitely part of the family and live on our 55-acre estate with plenty of room to exercise and play. They are cared for daily and receive lots of love and attention.
We offer our white vis-a-vis Cinderella type carriages for engagement proposals, weddings, anniversaries, parades, hayrides, proms, birthday parties, funerals, Christmas carriage rides and more! We take pride in our horses, carriages and equipment so you will be assured to have only the best. We also offers other horse drawn vehicles for festivals or larger groups
Be sure what you see IS what you get! Does the company you are interested in provide the horses/carriages that you see? They may be pictures of years ago. What you see is NOT always what you get! Therefore, if you have the opportunity to meet with the carriage company you are considering, we encourage you to do so. We would be happy to set up an appointment to meet with you with absolutely no obligation. Call us at 706.541.1084 to discuss your request.

About our fees... We are happy to offer reasonable prices that cover everything from preparation to set up to travel time. Our pricing is determined by the date, time, location and number of horses and carriages you require for your event. Feel free to call us for your individual price quote.
Getting to you... We are experts at getting to your location discreetly. We have specially designed trucks and trailers which safely transfer our horses and carriages to an "out of sight" meeting point. Upon our arrival, we work quickly to set everything up and will be ready to serve you at the designated time and location of your event.
Where we will go... Wisteria Hill Plantation, Inc. is located in Appling, GA which is about 20 miles west of Augusta. To ensure the safety and comfort of our horses during travel, we prefer to limit our travel distance to a 75 mile radius from our farm.
We go above and beyond! We strive to be the best wedding carriage provider serving the CSRA. Our courteous drivers will be dressed in tuxedos and top hats, and we also have female attendants to assist the bride with her gown as she enters and exits the carriage and also during pictures. After wedding ceremonies, we will also provide a sparkling beverage to 'celebrate your new beginning'! Last but not least, our drivers and attendants are experts with our horses and will patiently work with your photographer to make sure you get the perfect pictures on your perfect day.
How much time do I need? Horse drawn carriages are best suited for short distances. You will be travelling at a relaxed pace as you enjoy the day you have been planning so hard for. We suggest allowing about 10 minutes for each mile, and keeping the distance limited to about 2 miles from the starting point. If you are coordinating your arrival time with a wedding reception or other event, make sure you plan additional time for:
• A receiving line
• Photos with the carriage
• Travel time to your reception
