Always delighted to have a role in special occasions, we are proud to be a part of some of the most important moments in our clients' lives.  OT's Homestead & Double D Hitch has provided horse-drawn carriage and wagon services for events through the Dayton, Xenia, Columbus areas...plus eastern Indiana...since 1998. Weddings, festivals, parades, birthday parties, homecomings, funeral services...you name it. No event is too small or too large.


Dante and Diana Marshall own and run the family farm near Dayton Ohio, OT's Homestead, that has been in his family for generations and they started the Horse & Carriage business 23 years ago.  Dante's Grandpa Fred Dement raised and bred Percheron stallions and we have continued that legacy using white and black Percherons for our Double D Hitch teams. The working farm also boasts a pair of mini horses, a playful cat, and a Percheron colt every now and then.


We know your event is important to you, so it's also important to us!  We offer several carriage options so we have the perfect carriage or wagon for your needs. From our three fancier carriages to our four fun wagons and mini horse & cart, we have something that will be perfect for your special event. We provide and take care of everything. You don't have to worry about a thing with the Double D Hitch Team...we're there for YOU. Serving Dayton, Xenia, Springfield, Columbus, Montgomery and Franklin Counties...and beyond.
