HCDS had an amazing time at the Merrie Monarch Parade in Hilo this Saturday!! We had 4 Carriages in the parade, Gary Grisham and his Friesian pair, Karen FitzGerald and her pair, Ruby (Morgan/Haflinger) and Ehiku (quarter horse), Elaine and her mini Donkey Tattoo, and Shay and her rescue horse Kapanaia, plus her crew of enthusiastic 4H'ers!
If anyone saw us in the parade and is interested in learning how to drive a carriage or wants to get involved, please feel free to contact us! All our events are open to the public and we LOVE teaching people the 'original' driving skills 😉😁🐴

Our Landaulette was used in The Ghost and Mrs Muir, a 1947 film with Rex Harrison, Gene Tierney, and George Sanders! Many of the carriages in old Hollywood movies were actually original carriages from the 1800s!
Those are some huge wheels! Definitely suited for a 20-Mule Team Water Wagon!
The iron "tires" are heat fitted to the monumental wheels on the reproduction historic Death Valley 20-Mule Team Water Wagon by Dave Engel and crew ... getting close to the Mule Days parade in Bishop! See you there?
