We no longer operate tours in Downtown McKinney. We are only available for private events. Please know that from June-September we only operate between 8pm and 10 am. The heat is too dangerous for our beloved horses and staff.

We offer gorgeous, show groomed, well mannered horses for weddings, India weddings, surprise engagements, Unicorns, romantic outings, corporate parties,  parades, photo shoots, advertisements, television and film productions and other events throughout the D/FW and north Texas area. Our well trained, calm horses work inside ballrooms of hotels as well as they do in traffic. They are our beloved children and partners.

We were recently featured in an ad for the Ground Control Horseshoes.  All our horses wear these amazing shoes for traction and comfort as well as prevention of hoof and joint problems.

There are also endless photography opportunities available such as engagement photos, fantasy and costumed photos or family portraits. Enter or exit your next event with elegance and grace. Ride in as a knight in shining armor to propose, into the wedding of your dreams as prince charming, or ride together down the aisle on our gorgeous white horses or Unicorns. The pony size Unicorn is only available for photography shoots. Contact Betsy Marie Photography on Facebook for more information.

Bring your favorite cd, mp3 or ipod and relax to your favorite music as you cruise on any of our luxurious carriages.

Happy Trails Carriage Service is fully insured.

For safety purposes using anything that makes noise or visual fear, i.e. ( robotics, fireworks, sparklers, glow sticks, poppers, confetti, silly string, cap guns, anything thrown in the air, balloon releases, and live dove releases) are prohibited around the horses or carriage at any time due to safety of all around us. All instructions from the driver or horse handler must be followed at all times. No one may slap or assault the horses. These rules are to ensure safety for the horses, people and surrounding property. They are required so we stay in good standing with our insurance company.

The horses can only pull the carriages 3 miles in one hour, so please keep this in mind for distance and timing purposes. We can also not travel on busy roads or highways. We also do not work in extreme weather i.e. in the heat of the day in summer, or in snow and ice, as it is not safe for humans or horses.

Watch our commercial on who we are and how much we love our horses and our jobs!

We won the best Limousine Category on the Dallas A List for 2011! We placed 2nd in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017!
