Dear Shannon,
My husband and I wanted to thank you again for giving such exceptional service to us on our Wedding Day! The way you decorated the carriage to match my colors was so considerate and the tux and top hat really added the final touch. Everyone at my wedding complimented on how great you and the carriage looked. We will definitely recommend you in the future. Thanks again, Kind Regards,
Jorge and Kristine Fernandez

Hi Shannon!
I was part of the 5 people you took on a carriage ride (probably your last one of the evening), and I want to tell you, I can’t stop thinking about it! We were in town to see Electric Light Orchestra, saw the great show, and the evening was made OH SO PERFECT by you and the “ladies”!!!! As I look over your website, I am even more impressed by not only your knowledge of the historic places around McKinney, but your gentle nature and hard work you’ve obviously put into your company. Your family must be awfully proud of you! If we didn’t have to fly out back to Ohio the next morning, I certainly would have made another 5 or so rides!!!!!
Thanks again Shannon!

I have lived in McKinney for 14 years and on Friday, June 1 took my first carriage ride through historic McKinney. Shannon was a fantastic tourguide. She was very knowledgable and I learned alot of things that I did not know about our wonderful town. I believe that these rides are a wonderful addition to the downtown square and highly recommend them to anyone who wants a little taste of the history that made McKinney so great!

Sincerely, Shelly Mack

Thank you so much for making last night St Valentines one to remember for us. I will be recommending your service to all my friends and people I come across. The carriage ride through the historic part of McKinney was wonderful.For anyone who is thinking of going on a carriage ride either for a special treat or a special occasion I would totally recommend you contact Shannon Cole and Happy Trails. The horses are beautiful and in such great condition, her professionalism is impeccable and she made the entire experience everything I could have hoped for. Thank you so much Shannon!

Shannon – We cannot begin to express our gratitude and appreciation for the part you played in Raven’s 3rd Birthday Celebration. We were more than pleased with your services. Kids and parents alike have expressed to us how much they enjoyed the carriage ride – one little girl even told her Mom she wanted to have her birthday party at Raven’s House. We could not have made it such a magical moment for Raven and her friends without you and your beautiful horses. We are looking forward to booking a holiday tour – visiting with you often may help us elude the wishes for a pony in the backyard at least for a little while. Thanks again – You are wonderful at your craft and we are blessed to have found you. Regards,
Patrice & Michael Everidge

Heidi and I were involved with the wedding of her brother, Hunter King on May 4th. We followed your beautiful horses and carriage throughout the ride to the couples home taking pictures all the way. We were very impressed with you and the horses. Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Hello Shannon,

I’m Malina one of Madeleine’s wish granters (I was the one who spoke with you and gave you your tip). I would like to thank you again for what you did for Madeleine yesterday. You all were amazing and topped the day off better than I could have ever imagined. You are such a blessing. I will most definitely keep you in mind should I come across another wish like this or anything else for that matter. I told my fiancé ¡bout you and said we’d have to fit in a carriage ride into our wedding plans! I hope you have a wonderful day, I can’t put into words how I feel about your generosity. A million thank you’s is all I can say.

Take care,
Malina Chavez (Wish granter for the Make A Wish Foundation)

Thank you so much for agreeing to be a part of Madeleine’s wish celebration. We were not only impressed with your professionalism and friendly demeanor, but we were truly touched by your guestbook entry on Madeleine’s website. Thank you for making the extra effort!

Having a Horse drawn carriage at the end of our wedding reception (September 18th, 2004) was an incredible way to end our reception. It was a chance to cool off and have a moment to ourselves after the last few hectic weeks of wedding prep. The carriage looked great, Shannon was at the hotel when she said she would, and did an excellent job. Thanks!

We used Shannon and her beautiful horses for our wedding on 11/20. What an experience! She’s a very upbeat and knowledgable person and really loves what she does. We couldn’t have asked for a better professional on our wedding day…it’s definitely unforgettable. We highly recommend her services. Thanks Shannon!!!

I just wanted to thank you for coming to our neighborhood Halloween Harvest Hoedown. I heard many wonderful comments from the neighbors about how the carriage ride was one of the highlights of the party! I am sure we will want to invite you back for next year’s party as well.
