One horse open sleigh on Church Street

Posted: Updated:

Oh what fun it is to ride on a one, mini horse, open sleigh.

Kids lined up at the top of the Church Street marketplace-- to take a ride with some mini horses Saturday. Every year the marketplace invites the Green Mountain Miniature Horse And Donkey Association to have a few of their horses trot down the street with buggy in tow. The rides are free and are not just for kids. The horses can pull up to two adults at a time. But no matter the age of a rider or ganizers say the horses leave permanent smiles on everyone's face.

Scotty Richard said he comes to ride the horses every year.

"I like hearing their feet clank when I ride on them -- and they're just fun." said Richard.

Mini horse owner Kristin Quimby said, "A lot of them don't get a chance to get up close to a horse so that's personally why I do it to see and the rest of us -- how rewarding it is for us to see the kids and families together have such a good time."

This year's event was sponsored by Fair Point Communications. Owners say the the mini-horses can live to be 40-years-old.
