Get to know who we are...
            Anne Van Dyke is one of the original founders of Yellow Rose Carriage Co. back in 1982.

Not only has Yellow Rose received many letters of gratitude and appreciation from organizations for their professionalism and dedication to both their horses and the tourist industry in San Antonio, but  Anne has also won many awards…in combined driving.

Anne Van Dyke High Point Intermediate

Anne won a grant to compete at Gladstone, New Jersey at the United States Equestrian Center in Combined Driving.  Combined Driving is the driven equivalent to three day eventing with Dressage, Marathon (cross country) and Cones.  Gladstone is one of the premiere combined driving events held in the United States and it is quite an honor to compete there..

“I was very excited and honored to have won First in the Intermediate Singles Division, “said Anne, “as well as  high point overall in the Intermediate which includes Pairs and Singles!  I believe that it was the first time anyone from the Western states had won that event and it created quite a stir!”

Rich and Anne Van Dyke...

Renewing their vows on July 10, 2005

       Rich Van Dyke met Anne in 1988 while taking dance lessons. They became good friends and often competed in dancing.
 
       Rich soon began his "on the job training" with the carriages and would help Anne with reservations, horse and carriage work, and most of the "heavy" lifting.
 
       In July 1991 they made it official and were married down on the River Walk in the King William Area.  And of course they used a carriage for all aspects of their plans.
 
       Rich retired from the USAF in 1994 and has continued to help Anne run the carriage business. 
 
       He purchased and now manages the sister carriage company, H.R.H. Carriage.  Both companies operate out of the same carriage house and share the large selection of carriage horses.
