Why The Hitching Company

One-of-a-Kind Experiences

Unlike most city tours each of our carriage rides are completely personalized. From the quiet of a romantic ride through beautiful Minneapolis to a fully a narrated historical tour, our experienced and knowledgeable guides are ready to show you the city on your terms. Want a picture with your trusty horse? Just ask your guide, they will be glad to oblige!

A Unique Way To Experience The City

The nostalgia of a slower time, the sound of the hooves, and the relaxation of having a professional tour guide navigate the city streets. Locals and first-time visitors agree that there is truly nothing like the experience of a Hitching Company carriage ride through our beautiful city.

Hire a Carriage for a Special Event

Our horse-drawn carriages are a popular option for wedding parties when we decorate the carriage with flowers and greenery and add a “Just Married” sign. Our horses are gentle and used to music and drumming which makes them ideal for another popular event, Baraat. The horse and handler can be dressed in traditional clothing. We don’t stop at weddings, our carriages are regularly hired for proms, quinceañeras, corporate events, community parties, and funerals.

Who Are The Hitching Company?

We are a team of 18 full employees dedicated to providing new experiences through our Minneapolis carriage rides. Our product is not transportation, although we do physically move people, we transport people mentally with the sounds, aromas, and sensation of both the horse and carriage adding ambiance suiting the occasion.
