What to Expect
Central Park horse and carriage rides will let you see Central Park the way folks have for over 150 years. Discover why it has been the most popular way to see Central Park for so long.

The carriages are a symbol of pre-modern life, before the advent of motor vehicles. During this time, New Yorkers traveled by horse-drawn carriage, and as a result the horses became as much of a symbol of the city as the Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, and Statue of Liberty.

The magic of the horse-drawn carriage surrounds you as soon as you approach and the driver encourages you to pat the horse. Once you are ready, with a little signal, the horse will trot off to explore the many sights.

Clip-clop serenely through the park, listening to the rattle of the wheels, the whinnying of the horse and the tinkling of the harness.

The driver will become your guide as they talk you through many attractions of the park. A typical trip takes in the pond, the famous statues, Wollman Rink, the Carousel, Sheep Meadow, the Central Park Zoo, and the San Remo Building, to mention a few. The driver will also point out some of the locations for the many movies that have been filmed in the park.
