Dreams do come true
About Party Animals Carriage Service
Party Animals Carriage Service was established in 1990 by a young woman who worked for a carriage company in Dallas. Even though she was pressed with family obligations at that time in her life, she couldn’t help to think, “There has to be a better way to do this.” So she purchased the first all white carriage ever used in Dallas, purchased a quarter horse that was broke for driving, registered with the City of Dallas and said “Now I can do it my way.” While the competition was wearing blue jeans and tank tops, Party Animals decided to change the image of carriage driving in Dallas to what we thought carriage driving should look like. We were the first to make that statement of professionalism by wearing a white tuxedo shirt, black pants, boots, and a western hat. You could say that Party Animals coined the term “Western Formal” for carriage driving in Dallas. After all this is Texas and people come here expecting to see cowboys and cowgirls. Over the next few years Party Animals Carriage Service was built into a service that not only made a difference in the horse drawn carriage business in Dallas, we revolutionized it! Carrying on with our newly proven principles, we added another all white carriage along with a 10 seat all white party wagon to be used as a concept carriage and for special events. We developed a reputation of being elegant, friendly, professional and honest, something not very common in the industry. Our goal was to become the best carriage service in Dallas, and we were willing to do whatever it took to get our name recognized above and beyond the other carriage services in North Texas to achieve that goal.
Since 1990, we have experienced many changes. The young woman who started the company had to acquire help to meet the demands of what we were doing. Our image has become the standard of service. Now, all the competition has caught on to what we were doing as a proven, successful way to do business. Unfortunately for the competition, you cannot duplicate integrity, and upright operation, and a passion to be the best and most innovative in the business. That being the case, we have gone from a simple 2 carriage operation, into areas that the young lady that started the company never dreamed of. This company has operated a fully functional breeding farm where we breed and raise horses to use in our carriage business and elsewhere. We now do most of our own horse training, and all carriage driver training within the company. The company was growing everywhere we looked, we now have a total of 7 carriages we use in downtown Dallas, and we have added 5 party wagons that we use for corporate promotions, parades and special events. We are in the process of putting an additional 2 carriages in the Uptown area, where we will be the first permitted carriage service to work this hot new area of Dallas. We have given thousands of historical tours of downtown Dallas, done hundreds of successful marriage proposals, scores of weddings, and so many parades we have lost count.
Over the years there have been as many as 10 carriage companies authorized to work in Dallas, currently only four (4) remain. We have not been in the business the longest (close, but not quite), however our influence in this industry has been felt by each and every competitor since the inception of Party Animals Carriage Service in 1990. By attrition, we have become the largest and only carriage service that works seven (7) days a week, weather permitting.
Below is a small sample of some of the events we have been part of.
Here it is 18 years later and we are still doing it our way. We are working even harder to be the best carriage company in Dallas. We still believe that there has to be a better way and we are striving daily to provide it. Yet we are still committed to providing a friendly, professional and elegant service for your carriage needs. Now more than ever, we still believe that the greatest gift a family can exchange is quality time together. What better way to create that time than with an old fashion horse drawn carriage ride.
