CLASSIC CARRIAGE & CAR HIRE

It just started as a love for carriages handed down for generations, which lead Maureen and Chris Beyers to own one of the most unique antique carriage collections in the world. At the moment the collection comprises 25 carriages originally from Europe as well as South Africa and these range from a humble little goat-cart to the prestigious Landau's and Barouche's. All of these carriages are still in working condition and daily care is taken to keep them in mint condition.

Our carriages are authentic rare collectors’ items, not “home made”, self-designed or “built up” attempts. Each carriage differs from each other in style, type, period and colour. We therefore highly recommend that you make an appointment to view our conveyances at our property, Terrouges Equestre.

 

Carriages are also available for hire for other special events such as matric dances as well as props for commercials and feature films.
