Nothing says romance like a horse drawn carriage.
Peppermint Creek Carriage Company has been in business since 1991. Over the years we have worked with many individuals, businesses and governmental agencies.
We have expanded and grown each year. We now have a variety of beautiful historic vehicles and awesome horses. In addition, we have the equipment, trucks, trailers, etc. necessary to haul horses and carriages to locations far and wide. We presently service Merced to Lodi with no travel fee.
We have done so many interesting jobs and met so many interesting people. Our business has taken us to small towns throughout Central California. We have been hired for countless weddings and Quinceañeras (15th birthdays), proms, family reunions, parades, downtown promotions, homeowners association parties, historical reenactments and movies.
Besides the wonderful brides and grooms that we have met, we have had some very impressive people ride in our carriages: Mr. and Mrs. Gallo, various mayors, police chiefs, the President of the Board of Directors of the Smithsonian Institute, U.S. Army General and Carol Channing and her husband. The all loved the experience.
We have been featured in the Modesto Bee, Stockton Record, Lodi Newspapers, The Union Democrat, Merced Sun Star, Oakdale Leader and the Capital Press. Two of our horses were even movie stars. They were in the opening scene of the movie “Titanic”. Our carriages appear in some of the westerns that are filmed in Tuolumne County.
One dear friend said she believed our business was run on love. Indeed, we love the people, horses, carriages, the work and the time period we represent. We hope you will think of us for your next event.
