What and who is Yellow Rose Carriage Company?
Our Company History

     We have been proudly providing a quality horse-drawn carriage business to our visitors and residents of San Antonio, Texas since December of 1982.
      Anne Van Dyke, one of the original founders of Yellow Rose Carriage Co. moved to Texas in June of 1982.  She came west from the east coast originally from near Miami, Fl, in an old van, with an old horse trailer and a very special Half Arabian/Standardbred mare named Valentine. 
     An ad for carriage drivers was spotted in a local paper, and it seemed to be a perfect summer job while Anne was evaluating “real” job options.   That summer driving led her to develop a new dream.   By fall of 1982, that dream was realized.

     That special horse, Valentine, was one of the first horses used in Yellow Rose Carriage.   Valentine had learned to drive in the avocado groves outside of Miami and the city streets of San Antonio took some getting use to.  But Valentine quickly settled in and with one carriage, Yellow Rose Carriage Co. was in business!
