The ride is short, just around the block, but worth it. The horses were well cared for, and were alert and comfortable with ears forward. Most horse rides have horses in stressed conditions, dull eyed and ears laid back. These seemed happy and healthy. The...More

The horse carriages line up at the end of River Street and you get a 20 minute ride for $10. They had a beautiful Cinderella Coach and several other coaches that are all covered to protect you from elements. Beautiful healthy horses that you are...More
