We also offer Carriage rides through the historic town of Jim Thorpe, Pa. Our rides operate on weekends from April till the New Year. Friday and Monday may be included on particular weekends, depending on holidays or special events. For the month of October, during the " Fall Foliage" season, we opperate two carriages due to the large number of crowds. We are normally in town around 12noon untill 5pm. Rides are approximately 15 minutes long and go throughout the town. The cost is $25 for the whole carriage, which seats 4-6 people.
No appointment is needed. Just stop in, buy a ticket, and enjoy the ride. If you are unsure of any date or time, please contact us for more information.
Crystal View Carriage Services is a privately owned and opperated business by Kyle S. Hoppes. We are located in New Ringgold Pa. We offer rides directly off the farm in the beautiful country scenery or we are willing to travel to any location your special event may take us.
The left hand horse is Tux, age 12, and the right hand horse is Nitro, age 11. They are a team of Dapple Grey Percherons. Tux stands 17.1 hands tall, while Nitro stands 17.2 hands tall. Each horse weighs approximately two thousand pounds.
This team has been hooked together for the past four years. They are very well trained, and can be maneuvered by voice commands.
Before every job, horses and harness are washed, and carriage is cleaned so they will always look their best for your special event. *The carriage is equipped with a top, incase of inclement weather.
A truck and trailer transport all equipment to every location.
The farrier work for the team is done by Kyle himself, through Kyle Hoppes Farrier Services.
