Ariel makes for me the best possible carriage ride I could imagine. He his extremely friendly and he is super flexible when it comes to adapting and changing your plans. If I would like do another carriage ride I would definitely chose him again. He can tell you a lot of interesting things about Central Park and the buildings around.... More

I booked our carriage ride with Ariel about two months ahead of time. Once we got to NYC the weather turned really cold on our scheduled night. Ariel was easy to work with and allowed us to change our dates. It was a wonderful experience! We had an hour to ride thru Central Park, with Ariel stopping along the way... More

We ccommunicated with Ariel prior to our visit and then he adjusted the time of our ride according to our schedule. Then, when my daughter's feet got cold and wet from the snow in Central park he let her borrow warm socks for the ride and THEN went to go get her some new ones after the ride. He is... More

Ariel created the most perfect engagement that we will remember forever. I coordinated via phone with Ariel a few weeks prior. He listened intently to my requests for the ride and honored them perfectly during the ride without any reminders. These included ample pictures with both his and my cameras, our preferred pickup and dropoff locations, and the degree of... More

We quickly learned how passionate Ariel was as a coachman, and just as quickly it became so apparent how important it was to him that we would have a special and magical hour on our secluded and slow ride, taking in the majesty of central park and the stars of both the sky and the city. Now just a fond... More

I proposed to my now fiance last week. I was stressing out about who to book for the proposal horse and carriage ride. I am from Alabama, and I had never been to New York so I was pretty nervous. I decided to book the ride with Ariel, and it was the best decision I made on the whole trip.... More

Ariel was a lovely tour guide with 35 years of experience. My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. He was very photo gracious, knowledgeable of the city, of horses and their care and a true pleasure to meet. He even had lights on the carriage that lit up and was decorated nicely. He took good care of his horse and... More

The carriage ride was absolutely wonderful and the proposal was a complete surprise to me! We are from Florida, and my fiancé and Ariel had spoken for months prior to plan this. Not only did Ariel do a great job at taking pictures without me catching on, but he then took us down a gorgeous path near the lake, and... More

It was FRIGID COLD! But we enjoyed our ride very much. We loved hearing the history of the park--would have loved to hear even more. We enjoyed the stop where we walked under the bridge and out onto the fountain patio. Unbelievable little gem! My only complaint is that Ariel booked us at a certain time, and we didn't get... More
