I do want you to know how much I deeply appreciated all you and Gabriela did to make sure your cart was perfect.

Just enjoyed a wonderful day with Steve, Gabby and the beautiful Casey. Cannot recommend this Shire Horse Experience Day enough. Thank you for being wonderful hosts and to Casey for being so patient.

Joanne Marie, Experience Day Client

Your contribution and understanding was absolutely crutial to replicating the historical scene, and actually exceeded my expectations. The vintage dray was perfect and the Shires were unbelievable, so well-behaved especially in the traffic.   

Peter Elson, The Blue Coat School Liverpool
