Coach- carriage Rides
With a design of almost 400 years old, the Vis-A-Vis derives its name from the French. The coach is a fine example of craftsmanship turned out by the hands of the master coach builders. Our first coach, the formal coach, is black with white interior with coach lamps. The top on the coach comes up like a convertible, but most prefer it down. The second coach is a wagonette which is a larger carriage that can hold up to 10 passengers. It is a deep hunter green with natural wood stained wheels and easy access from the back by 2 steps and a railing. There is no top on this carriage.
- Our coach horses are a registered team of well trained, experienced and cared for Belgian or Percheron horses.
- The coachman is formally dressed in coachman attire consisting of a black top hat, tall boots, breeches, and a tuxedo tailed coat.
- The options for events to use coach carriage rides are unlimited from weddings, Christmas parties or quiet summer rides through Ellison Park.
