Meet Bella! As the newest and only equine female member of our carriage company, Bella is very smart and a quick learner. Bella is a North American Spotted Draft Horse. When Bella is not giving tours, she makes use of her time by bossing the boys around and taking long naps. Her other talent is eating ! Even though her brothers are twice the size of her, she can eat twice as much. When you come to see her, don't forget to bring carrots and apples. Dont just tip your driver, all the horses like “tips” too!
Meet Maverick! He is the smallest, but strongest equine member of the family. Maverick is a crossbreed, meaning his Sire (father) was a Tennessee walking horse and his Dam (mother) is a Percheron. Crossbreeds are very versatile horses and are typically very healthy and happy! Maverick, like Bella, loves naps, food and bossing around his big brothers. Maverick is as solid as they come and excels at everything he does! If you come to visit him and take a tour, make sure you keep the pizza box hidden away from him! He will take it out of your hands!
Meet King! King is a Shire draft horse. The breeds origin is from England and the breed is listed on the “Critically Endangered Species” list.

King has been a family member of Chattanooga Carriage Company since 2017. King loves Probiotic Apple treats from Tractor Supply. Not only are they a yummy treat, they are actually good for his digestive system. If you “tip” King in Probiotic Apple treats, he will be your best friend!
Meet Daryl ! He is our movie star. Daryl, was chosen by Paramount Pictures for the upcoming film "Grounded.” Daryl is a Clydesdale, which is a breed origininating from Scotland. Clydesdales almost went extinct, but thanks to the efforts of Budweiser's breeding program in the early 70's, Budweiser was able to revive the breed from critically endangered to just endangered. Daryl seems happy with his new mate/girlfriend, Bella. Wherever Daryl goes she is right beside him. Daryl is a gorgeous horse that will do anything you ask of him, even though he moves like molasses. We couldn't be more thankful to have him! Take a ride with Chattanooga's only equine movie star.
