Horse and Carriage Ride


Every year around Christmastime, many major cities will offer free horse and carriage rides. This year our family bundled up and decided to go. We didn’t even have to wait in line this time. We just climbed up onto the carriage right away. This particular covered carriage had two bench seats that faced each other. The driver introduced us to the horses at the beginning of the ride.

The horses jingled and we went clop, clopping down the street. Except it was crunch, crunching down the street because of the snow. My family started singing “Jingle Bells” until my husband said this wasn’t a one horse open sleigh and spoiled all the fun. I’m kidding. He didn’t spoil the fun. He was smiling just like the rest of us.

Watch my family go on a horse and carriage ride in this video:

    The gait of the horses got me laughing. They were stepping down the road like good, cultured ladies. Haha! And the bells! Lovely!

    We’ve gone on horse and carriage rides a few different times. My favorite was through the downtown of Omaha, NE. The downtown area was lit up and there were carolers on the corner as we went along with bells ringing on the horse and drinking hot cocoa!
