I drove carriages in downtown Orlando for ten years. I drove carriages at Church Street Station and I've hauled more people than you could shake a stick at around here and Church Street, Lake Eola. I did over a 1,000 weddings, parades, parties. You name it. Any kind of outdoor event...

Brent Bachand is pictured at Lake Eola waiting to drive a bride and groom in his horse drawn carriage.

Listen as Florida horseman Brent Bachand describes his experiences leading horse carriages in downtown Orlando in this excerpt from an oral history interview with Mr. Bachand at the Orlando Public Library on August 2, 2016.
