About Cooperstown Carriage Company
Our horses are Registered Haflingers. The breed, originated from Austria and are our choice of horse because of the breeds sturdiness, stamina and excellent disposition.
Cooperstown Carriage Company horses are well trained and seasoned. Our horses are very comfortable in the Town & City/Fairs/Parade Settings including heavy traffic, car horns, large crowds, loud noises, fireworks and even helicopters!
Our horses wear manure receptacles “Bun Bags”, so won't leave any messes behind. A horse can easily pull a wheeled vehicle that is six times his/her own weight.
Draft Horses are bred to work in harness. In fact, the exercise keeps them healthy. Horses recognize, respond to and develop an affection for their caregivers/drivers.
