A horse-drawn carriage is an elegant way to travel to special events, such as first days of kindergarten, professional wrestling matches, and going to a hospital to browse the maternity ward. Evoke refined style even if you're wearing a "Macho Man" Randy Savage costume with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a country carriage ride for two through Suffolk and Holland plus a light dinner from Chariots for Hire (a $180 value). Horse-drawn rides begin at the Chariots for Hire farm in Suffolk. Weekends are booked well in advance, so make reservations as soon as possible.

Family owned and operated since 1986, Chariots for Hire whisks romantic couples on an elegant, 50-minute horse-drawn carriage stroll, riding from the rural parts of western Suffolk through the quaint downtown of nearby Holland. Chariots for Hire's impeccably groomed horses wear rubber shoes to lightly gallop down quiet city streets, and each coachmen will pilot his stallions while decked in formal attire, complete with a top hat that houses a smaller top hat inside. A light dinner comes in a large basket, with options such as roasted chicken and bacon wraps and pimento-and-cheese sandwiches. Riders can BYOB, as coachmen will have wine glasses and corkscrews ready. Enjoy spectacular views in the autumn, such as the multi-hued leaves of Suffolk, which change to orange, red, yellow, and clear in the fall.

Carriage rides set out rain or shine, with the tops folded down for sunny weather, and the tops folded up for cold or rainy weather. For those seeking a romantic getaway, the peaceful pace and serene countryside of a carriage ride afford plenty of opportunities to make a chivalrous marriage proposal or delicately reveal your clandestine life as a slightly above-average hockey player.

Customer Reviews

I gave this Groupon to my sister as a gift. She and her husband had a fantastic time and already want to do it again. She said it was a family run business and that they treated them so nicely. I hope you offer it again very soon.

It was a magical experience for us from beginning to end! I'm sure their intent is for couples but I took my granddaughter and it was made special for her! I loved it myself and hope to go back again. From the moment our little hostess met us to the very end...which was well after the ride, we were made to feel welcome by all the family. Dinner was delicious though I wish I had spoken up for the leftovers. It was fun having a picnic while riding along listening to Fancy and her Christmas bells. Thank you so very much for putting the word out about your company through Groupon. We loved it!

It was wonderful! Everyone was so friendly. The tour of the farm was great and the memory photos were an added surprise. Did I forget to mention the light dinner was scrumptious and just perfect!
