Horse-Drawn Carriage Rides

Although they can certainly be romantic, we don’t tend to do the horse-drawn carriage rides in most of the cities that we visit. Unfortunately, often the horses are not treated well and the prices that they charge are generally not worth the experience. Sometimes you can get some interesting information about the city from the driver, but often times you can’t always trust what they are telling you. In New York City, they are considering banning the horse-drawn carriages, which has a lot of people upset, but perhaps some regulation would do the industry some good. Even though we don’t usually go on a horse-drawn carriage ride, we decided to share a couple of photos from two of our more memorable experiences. One is from our 10th wedding anniversary that we spent in Disney World and the other is from the time that we got lost in Seville, Spain. We hope that you enjoy these photos for this week’s Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge.

  1. I think regulation could be the key. I know in Disneyland Paris, the horses are only out in the morning when the crowds and heat is low. But places like New York where they’re contending with traffic and that heat seems cruel.
