Distinctive Horse-drawn Carriage Services in Northern Illinois

“Transporting Your Heart” 

Shepherd’s Carriage Livery specializes in providing horse-drawn carriage services of distinction for all kinds of special events throughout northern Illinois.  Our formal carriages have been custom built for us in Europe according to our demanding standards for quality and authenticity. For hayrides and sleigh rides, the covered wagon and bobsled represent the best of American craftsmanship.  

Let us bring the horse-drawn experience to your family celebrations. While limos are fine for business transportation, our carriages “Transport Your Heart”. Whether you are planning a romantic carriage ride for two or taking the entire wedding party to the reception, we have the horse-drawn vehicle to make your event something special.  Don’t forget anniversaries, engagements, proms and quinceneras in your horse-drawn plans.  

Corporate events, reunions, town festivals, parades, promotions, fund-raisers are all types of occasions which can be enhanced by horse-drawn entertainment. Our beautifully presented horses and carriages draw crowds and provide marquis value to your event. Whether its wagon rides at a school picnic, or a splashy formal arrival at the symphony, we promise prompt, worry-free and above all, professional service.  

Our registered Belgian draft horses are our pride and joy.  Fawn, Polly and daughter Shy, Fanny and her daughter Sweet provide our big and gentle horsepower.  Polly, having made the cover of many papers, “knows” she’s famous.  Fawn has calmed and assured many brides; she really is a “dear”. The horses are, quite simply, “family”. If you would like to meet them, visitors are welcome at our farm, by appointment.
