My husband and I did the carriage ride with "Dillon", a gorgeous gray. It was great to experience Helen at a slower, quieter pace. All the horses we saw were well cared for. I would recommend this to anyone!

Don't jump on without asking the route and price.. It's a stupid route, you go through the "strip" then around a block basically, for $10 PER Person... What a waste, basically a ten minute ride! The person driving the carriage was rude and not talkative...More
