Our Horses and Guiding Principles
Lakota’s Farm is owned and operated by Alan & Kimberly Finney. It is home to Saratoga Horse and Carriage LLC and the Wedding Barn. It is also the home of 5 rescue horses and the 5 draft horses that work in the carriage business. Lakota’s Farm is named after our very first horse, he looks like an Indian horse. Lakota was rescued from a farm along with his brother Othello. Lakota had been abused and he is now blind in one eye. Othello was so emaciated it took 4 men to stand him up out of the mud. When we became caretakers, Lakota made it very clear he did not like men or trust people in general. Two years of love and patience has made him and his brother each a new horse. We honored Lakota’s forgiveness in mankind by naming our farm after him. Lakota gave us courage, taught us patience and gave us inspiration to look further and follow our hearts, which brings us where we are today.
SH&C relies on our impressive white and black Percheron horses to pull our carriages and wagons. They are experienced in all types of situations, superbly trained, traffic safe, personable, and beautiful. We take great pride in our horses and treat them with the dignity, respect, love and kindness they deserve. We encourage our clients to come and see how our horses live any time.
