Happy Trails Horse Services

Formerly Happy Trails Carriage Service

We no longer offer carriage work

Creating Timeless Elegance…

Call or text 214-662-6705 for pricing and availability. Please include the date, time and location to receive a quote, as this is needed to calculate time traveled, fuel for the truck and trailer and for a helper.  All events are customized, color coordinated and executed with the highest professionalism.  You can also email us at happycarriage@yahoo.com or happycarriage@peoplepc.com. Calling or texting is the fastest way to reach us and get your event on the books! Pricing begins at $650.


We offer gorgeous, show groomed, well mannered horses for India weddings,  Unicorns, corporate parties, 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 and crowds of people. They are our beloved children and partners.

We no longer operate carriage events, tours in Downtown McKinney or Holiday light tours. We are only available for private events on private property to ensure the safety of our horses.  Please know that from June-September we only operate between 9pm and 10 am. The heat is too dangerous for our beloved horses and staff.

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 into the wedding of your dreams or ride together down the aisle on our gorgeous white horses or Unicorns.

The pony size Unicorn is only available for photography shoots. Contact Nicole Wierick Photography on Facebook for more information or go to: https://www.nicolewierickphotography.com/   

Happy Trails Horse Services is fully insured.

For safety purposes using anything that makes noise or visual fear, i.e. ( robotics, fireworks, colored smoke bombs, 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. 

We will 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.
