The rich history of Charleston and our horses is undeniable. For centuries, horses have walked the Holy City’s streets providing both transportation and entertainment to citizens and visitors alike. The horse carriage industry of Charleston continues this long tradition of equine transportation that has over time become the iconic symbol of Charleston. Today’s horses of the carriage industry are provided the very best in care and comfort. Each carriage company is held to rigorous standards that are set in place by the city. Charleston C.A.R.E.S. is committed to going above and beyond what is required. We want our horses to be the healthiest in the city because we care.
