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

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

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

We took a carriage ride through Central Park. So glad we did. It was gorgeous and we got to see the park in a leisurely way.

Ariel made sure my proposal was something she would never forget. It is awesome how much he cared and the effort he put in to make sure everything worked flawlessly. I started by leaving a message at the number on his website and he called me back the next day. I explained how I wanted to propose in Central Park... More
