Imagine the site of huge, magnificent Clydesdales with their flowing white feather and friendly white faces...
The harness clinks and jingles as you relax to the gentle rhythm of the horses’ hooves. An experience that is rarely seen nowadays, travelling in a carriage drawn by a team of mighty Clydesdales is one that you will never forget.
Colonial Clydesdales & Carriages started from my love and admiration for the majestic Clydesdale. One of my earliest memories as a young child was watching in amazement the beautiful Clydesdales at the Perth Royal Show. This admiration stayed with me throughout my life and my passion for the Clydesdale inspired me to share my love of these horses with the people of WA, establishing Colonial Clydesdales & Carriages in 2007.
Colonial Clydesdales & Carriages is now managed by myself and my partner Peter. Together we have a common love for these rare horses and a desire to ensure that the traditions of the Clydesdale are preserved, whilst bringing a unique and unforgettable experience to the people of WA.
The Colonial Clydesdales are now the last professional Clydesdale team in Western Australia. The skills and knowledge involved in presenting, training and driving Clydesdales are almost lost today. Our aim is to preserve these magnificent horses and the skills and traditions that are associated with them, before they are lost to the pages of the history books forever.
We achieve this by presenting our Clydesdales at public events such as agricultural shows, festivals and events around the state of WA. In addition, we cater for private weddings, parties, anniversaries and functions and specialise in corporate promotions and marketing. Our horses and range of carriages, wagon and horse drawn farming implements are available also for ridden events, photo shoots, movies, commercials and for static displays and props.
We hope to see you at one of our events soon,
Emma & Peter
