Horse-drawn carriage rides raising money for “exceptional charity work”, says Baroness Kramer.
This winter, you can experience Richmond Park like never before. A timeless carriage, drawn by a pair of grey horses is available for rides in the Park. The two hour experience starts with a behind the scenes tour of the stables and refreshments, followed by a meet and greet with the horses. Liveried staff will then take you for a drive through the park.
“What a special winter experience to ride in a horse-drawn carriage in the magical setting of Richmond Park. It beats modern transport! The therapeutic work that Holly Lodge and Operation Centaur are doing with autistic youngsters is exceptional. And how wonderful that the very horses that bond with the children are contributing to fundraising by pulling these historic carriages”, said Baroness Kramer, as she launched the initiative with a special ride through Richmond Town Centre.
She was accompanied by Dr Pat Ealy OBE, Director of the Holly Lodge Centre, and Dr Andreas Liefooghe, Head of Operation Centaur. The carriage was driven by Operation Centaur’s Head Coachman, Edward MacDowell.
