A carriage ride adds much joy to your special occasion!

We offer a choice of carriages pulled by a beautiful matched team of horses. Cline or one of our sons will personally drive the horse-drawn carriage, in top hat and tuxedo if desired! Our many delighted customers will tell you that we are dependable, reasonable, friendly, and experienced.

A LITTLE BUGGY HISTORY

Cline got his start in the buggy business as a young boy in 1949. A relative gave him an antique carriage, but by the 1980s,it had seriously deteriorated. We had the 100-year-old carriage restored in 1995 in the Amish community in Ohio.

The next year we purchased a two-seated surrey with fringe on top. And, to meet the increasing demand, we had a 3-seated surrey built in 1998 by 3 amazing craftsmen at Chandlers Coach Shop in Petersburg, Kentucky. In 2000, we added a white vis-a-vis especially suited for weddings.



The white buggy is popular for Christmas rides as well.


A LITTLE FAMILY HISTORY

In 1973, Kathryn began writing a humorous weekly newspaper column, "The Farmer's Wife," which ran for 30 years in the Shelby (NC) Star.

We got out of farming in 1986, not by choice but of necessity. Eventually we sold our 125-year-old farmhouse and moved into town. But our heart is still on the farm, where we keep our horses and buggies.

AND, we were able to realize a lifelong dream in 2001. We built a house and moved back onto the farm in October 2001.
