Carriage Driving & Equestrian Centre Hereford
Welcome to KC Carriages. With 30 years of dedicated service to the equine population, we have rescued hundreds of horses and ponies, many we still care for at our stables in Herefordshire and others that we have placed at loving homes around the country where they can end their days being loved and cared for in safety.
One of the ways we raise money so that we are able to continue this work is with our carriages, for weddings, funerals and special events throughout the country. We have travelled the length and breadth of the UK with our horses and carriages making every event memorable, especially when our clients know that they are also helping support our rescue work.
Having grown over the years, we now offer a diverse range of services for all ages and stages, including riding and driving lessons and riding for the disabled. We also provide horses for film and TV hire and historical re-enactments. Our yard is ABRS approved and we are also approved by the Carriage Driving Association. We have a team of extremely talented instructors and can provide tuition in any sphere. For further information about any of our services, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We are an approved centre holding a full animal performing licence and are authorised by the new Animal Welfare Act to use our horses in all promotions of performing animals, for TV, films and activities for public display. Our reference number can be obtained by calling the centre.

What our customers are saying
Fantastic, professional and caring What can I say. What a fantastic job Lorraine and her team did for my fathers funeral on Tuesday. The horses were absolutely beautiful, the staff were brilliant, professional, caring and very kind. The communication from Lorraine was brilliant, shame the funeral company I used for everything else wasn’t as good!. Lorraine made the process very simple and easy and clear in this difficult time for us as a family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything that you and your team did for us on Tuesday! Brilliant. I would definitely recommend for anyone who may be thinking of a horse drawn carriage.Richard Wright10/28/2021

Beautiful Horses KC just provided a horse drawn carriage for my Dad’s funeral. The horses and carriage were beautiful and carried out their duties wonderfully. They did my Dad very proud. I got the chance to meet one of the owners, Lorraine, before the funeral and she couldn’t have been more helpful to me which was a big comfort during a very difficult time.Also remember using this company helps provide funding for the horse sanctuary they run so a very worthy company.I have no hesitation in recommending them at all. They are the best.TracyS-1315/22/2020
