Our Horses

We have 5 beautiful draft horses that make up Charming Carriages

& Swan Valley Wagon Tours team.

All of the horses live on a 55 acre property in Bullsbrook,

where they receive 24 hour care.

Not only are our horses a part of our family business they also are our passion and our pets who we love dearly. 

When they are not working they are relaxing in their paddocks together eating and eating and sleeping and grooming and eating...

and did we mention eating...
