(WWMT/CNN) - An Amish man in Michigan is putting a new spin on ridesharing.

Timothy Hochstedler of Colon, Michigan, gives customers a lift with his horse and buggy.

Hochstedler calls it an "Amish Uber," but he doesn't actually work for the company.

For just $5, you can get more than a ride, but also a one-of-kind experience.

Hochstedler said his horse is sociable and loves the attention.

"He loves people. He's a Morgan. A Morgan is a people's horse. They love giving you a kiss or whatever," said Hochstedler.

To get a ride, you just have to flag down Hochstedler -- no cellphone required.
