Carriage Rides

Step back into a time reminiscent of a Charles Dickens novel or a Norman Rockwell painting as you enjoy the company of family and friends with the sounds of horses' hooves and holiday music in the background.

You can catch a carriage ride at Rustin Park near Santa's Village in the Southlake Town Square. Feel free to bring your own blanket and cocoa when the weather is chilly.  

The carriages are generally out after 5:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, and after 4 p.m. on Sundays during the holiday season (Thanksgiving through Christmas). These are the standard times for walk-up service; however, carriages may start early or stay late depending on demand. Other times are available by appointment. Reservations can be made online for the Extended Carriage Ride only. Book your reservation here. For more information, visit Work Horse Ranch's website or call 817-925-4993.
