Our Company

Welcome to Equus Carriages Ltd. My name is Anna-Marie Bisset.

My great uncle, Ben Ford established our family run business in 1965 after retiring from the Royal Horse Artillery, my mother Maria Bisset, took over the business Ben Ford Carriages Ltd and made it what it is today. Maria handed the reins of the horse-drawn weddings and funeral business to myself and therefore laid the foundations of Equus Carriages Ltd.

Working within the family business has been divided between the film and television industry, driving for funerals, weddings, processions and other promotional events.

This has enabled me to develop a great passion for bringing the client a professional standard of turn out. Additionally I went further afield to develop and refine my skills working in Italy and America with both commercial and competitive carriage driving horses.

I am British Driving Society qualified having obtained their road driving assessments certificates, together with a City and Guilds certificate of competence. We are fully covered by public liability insurances.

My aim is to bring the knowledge, experience, qualifications and professionalism gained over the last thirty years and combine it with my own passion for driving and presentation to bring you Equus Carriages Ltd.
