Midsummer Rides in Richmond Park now available
Operation Centaur can bring you an experience like no other. A four-person carriage drawn by our beautiful greys will allow you to experience the park like you never have before.
This 90 minute experience begins at Holly Lodge, Richmond Park, where you will be met with refreshments, and a unique behind-the-scenes visit of the working stables, as your horses are readied. You will take your place in the four-person Landau carriage, embarking on a 60 minute ride through the park in all its glorious midsummer beauty. There will, of course, be plenty of photo opportunities en route.

Happy feedback from our Winter Rides!
The carriage ride was a remarkable and memorable experience which managed to be both intimate as well as grand. The carriage, horses and all the staff were totally fantastic. And we loved returning to the yard after and being able to help a little with the horses and the carriage. We all left the park feeling very happy and calm. It was my mothers 88th birthday and she tells me that her carriage ride was her best present ever. What you are doing is wonderful; the stuff of dreams. And what a lovely driver and footman. I send my thanks to all the team. Best wishes and Happy New Year.Carolyn
We had a most wonderful time on the carriage ride, it was a beautiful, bright chilly day to see the Park in all its glory. The blankets kept us all very warm and we enjoyed the leisurely pace of the horses to be able to experience the ancient park in a yester-year fashion. The hot tea and sloe gin where a very welcome, as we drank and observed an amazing sunset it felt like a very fitting end to a wonderful afternoon. With best wishes to you for 2015.Phil
Magical! The team were very welcoming and made the whole experience wonderful. Please pass on my thanks to all involved. Looking forward to doing it again next year! Many thanks.Jacqui
We had a fantastic time on the carriage ride. My son is totally mad about horses. He is now 3 and half. We came last year for his Christmas present and my sister took him this year, as he’d talked about it all year! The ride itself was simply wonderful – a magical experience never to be forgotten. And the people that took us out fabulous. We can’t recommend it enough to people and the great work that you guys do. Very best wishes.Rebecca
