Our Mission


The Charleston Carriage Association for Responsible Equine Safety (Charleston C.A.R.E.S.) continually advocates for the highest level of equine care among Charlestonโ€™s horse carriage community.

Charleston C.A.R.E.S. was founded by three of the Charleston area's top carriage companies:  Charleston Carriage WorksOld South Carriage Company, and Palmetto Carriage Works. Our companies have committed to holding ourselves to a higher standard of care for our beloved horses, going above and beyond government requirements and regulations. As members of Charleston C.A.R.E.S., we are also committed to being advocates and educators for the often misunderstood and misrepresented horse carriage industry.
