“Don't believe the bad things you hear”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

I am a New Yorker but had never taken a Central Park Carriage Ride. Finally did it last week and happy I did. I had a lovely driver, Dermot, who was friendly and fun. He insisted on taking a picture for me and let me feed carrots to the horse after the ride. There was no pressure to take a longer ride or to give a tip. All of the horses I saw looked well taken care of. Don't believe all the hype against carriage rides. Much of it is driven by developers who want to get control of the land the stables are on. I plan to be back!
