Wasn't sure if I wanted to spend the time or money on a horse and carriage ride through Central Park, but I'm so glad we did as we all enjoyed it. The carriages were all lined up on 59th St, so I approached the first one, but he referred us to the next carriage when he heard that we only... More

Hi, We visited NYC for 5 days from the UK and planned to experience central park on a horse drawn carriage. A little apprehensive as there were lots of rumours about neglect, but we live in the country and are surrounded by horses and these were in very good condition so don't necessarily believe the rumours because sometimes that's all...

This company provides NO service whatsoever. I agree with other people who have posted about receiving no response from this company. I sent 3 email requests because there is no other way to contact this dodgy company. At no point did I get any response to my webpage query, leaving email details and phone numbers (and nothing went to junk... More

We wanted to arrange a horse & carriage ride around Central Park after our wedding on the 11th July. We were getting married at Shakespeare Gardens, then lunch at the Loeb Boathouse. We wanted to be picked up from the Loeb & then finally dropped off at the Tavern on the Green. We didnt realise that a number of different... More

We just came back from New York and had a great ride through Central Park with Ron. Booking with Ariel was very easy and Ron was on time to meet the four of us. Our hour ride was very informative - Ron knows it all and makes it very interesting. Letting us feed our horse was a nice touch. There... More

I recently visited New York with the intention of asking my now fiance to marry me. After extensive research i emailed Ariel for more info on his services. He did get back to me after a few weeks ( yes a little slow but obviously very busy ). We arranged everything via phone and once in New York by text... More

As advertised throughout all the posts here, Ariel is absolutely the go to guy for a marriage proposal in Central Park during a horse carriage ride. Please be advised that he may not respond promptly (reflecting the demand for his services!); however, he will follow up with you and deliver on all the details. Following the script of everyone else... More

This past week I contacted Ariel to create the perfect proposal setting for my now Fiance. He contacted me within hours of making a request through his website (http://www.nycarriages.com/)for the carriage ride. We discussed what I wanted in detail and he was easy to work with. I wasn't able to make my original 6pm reservation and with a call a... More

It's not very often when you come across a person who truly loves their job. Ariel the owner and operator of NY Carriages has been giving tours of Central Park for over 33 years. I contacted Ariel from New Hampshire with the hope that I could propose to my now fiancé in Central Park. I explained that I was not... More
