On behalf of everyone at Calamity Carriages– We would all like to thank you for visiting, as we are always excited to see faces-old or new. While you are here, we ask that you please visit our scrapbook page and also take a look at the barn and carriage house to view photos of all our horses, wardrobes and vehicles available. But first of all lets get acquainted.
This is going to be our 10 year anniversary and we are all really excited about the growth of the company. I would like to take a moment and thank all the crew members who are more than just friends, but considered Family. Without the special, loyal and dedicated people who help with so much, Calamity Carriages would not be the wonderful company it is. Secondly, of course, we owe a moment to acknowledge the wonderful animals that make this company so memorable.
As you may know; in Colorado and all along the front range, the seasons are always changing and rapidly approach which means here at Calamity Carriages there is always hard work to be done gearing up for what is ahead. However; due to our hard work, we are excited to announce that we are now one of the largest carriage companies in and around the entire Colorado Front Range. The newest additions to our company include our Shire horse Jeffrey, who can be teamed up with Jimmy for a tuxedo team of Clydesdales, plus we have added our Canadian Horse, Smokey, who has clip clopped his way into the hearts of everyone here at the barn. We have our new equipment including the second hay wagon large enough to move 16-20 people at a time; our flatbed caisson and full size hearse designed to carry modern day caskets for funeral processions; We also added our second limousine vis-à-vis as well as another white and burgundy vis-à-vis carriage. That gives the company a total of 16 different types of horse drawn vehicles, a total of 20 carriage horses offered as single and teams, five truck and trailer rigs as well as 10 hard working crew members.
Calamity Carriages has several locations; our north location in Arvada; the south location in Parker; and our central location in the heart of Denver. We have also extended our services as far south as Colorado Springs. With all these locations we can offer a touch of Western Elegance and provide you and your guests our heart warming and memorable services throughout the entire front range area and state of Colorado. Be it an elegant vis-a-vis for a wedding departure, an eight passenger wagonette for a family reunion, a hay wagon for Christmas caroling, a horse drawn hearse for funeral processions, a historical tour of downtown Denver, or a relaxing ride along Cherry Creek and Parker main street; we have just the vehicle you are looking for. Calamity Carriages normal rate boundaries are Golden to DIA and Longmont to Colorado Springs. Outside those boundaries there is a minimal travel fee added.
The equipment used is all of commercial standard. The vehicles are equipped with side, tail, and turn signals, full fifth wheel turning ability, hydraulic brakes, heavy duty suspension and wheels, as well as most of the vehicles are easily accessed by elderly, handicapped, etc. They are cleaned and maintained on a regular schedule to ensure long term use and safe operation. The horses are specially trained to handle the largest of crowds, the loudest of noise, and the liveliest situations. Each horse and driver must pass the Downtown Denver, District 6, Mounted Patrol test to operate the streets of Denver and YES!! They are all equipped with diapers for the removal of manure. Every horse owned is a pet and is given special attention to grooming, trimming, and health care; so as to ensure longevity of health and also to promote a good impression on clients and viewers. So rest assured that no matter what vehicle you choose, it will be hitched to a star.
