Incorporating: A W Jones Carriages
Whites Hill Carriages is owned and managed by Mark Phillips. Mark has been working with horses for more than 30 years as a registered farrier, as a coachman, and as a rider. Mark has been mentored over the years by his close friend Mr Ronny Dobbs whose experience as a coachman spans more than 50 years. Ronny's driving experiences include film work, coachman at the Royal Mews & head coachman for Rothmans for many years. Ronny has been influential to Mark's views on etiquette and the traditional values of driving.
Mark has been driving a pair or team of horses for pleasure and experience and he has turned out beautiful horse-drawn vehicles for family and friends' weddings, school proms & other special birthday occasions. Some of these are pictured in the photo gallery. More recently Mark has set up Whites Hill Carriages so that his horse-drawn vehicles can be shared and experienced by others who have a passion for horses and traditional values.
Mark manages the business with his partner Bev who also has more than 30 years experience with horses. Her experience includes breaking and schooling, showing, cross country, dressage and endurance riding. Mark and Bev have a yard of 10 horses, including the 6 driving horses. Their main priority is to ensure all the horses remain fit and healthy for the work they do.
