What’s the next best thing to riding a horse? Of course a ride on a carriage, wagon or toboggan pulled by a horse or a stable of horses. You just need to bundle up in warm clothes and sit back on the couch of a wagon or sleigh as the horses tow away the stagecoach through fields or tracks covered with snow. Or you can hitchhike on the back of a horse-drawn cart that is trudging across a picturesque valley blooming with spring flowers with a majestic view of the Rocky Mountains. There are many inns and hotels throughout the world as well as standalone agencies offering horseback adventures including horse-riding and trips on horse-drawn wagons.
A trip on a wagon or toboggan pulled by a team of horses will surely be an uplifting and exciting experience as you’ll get the opportunity to explore the scenic landscape of the region which the carriage passes through. The landscape may comprise of large gushing rivers, small rushing rivulets or streams, steep canyons, mountainous paths, plains, valleys, and other geographical landforms. A ride on a wagon or sleigh towed by horses allows you to soak in the sights and sounds of the area from close quarters and in a relaxed manner.
Opting for a ride on a wagon or carriage lugged by horses offers honeymooners with ample opportunities to come close to each other and snuggle up while enjoying the scenic beauty of the surroundings. Just imagine the thrill of being draped in quilts or blankets sitting snugly inside a wagon while you and your better-half pass through snow-enveloped landscape in the Swiss Alps or Colorado Rockies. Even families with small kids can take advantage of such wagon or sleigh rides where a trip may last for one hour or several hours.
