Y'all ready for a carriage ride? Let me, Karin, a longtime Memphis Horse-and-Carriage Driver, take you on a tour of my beloved industry Like all jobs, carriage driving has its perks- an amazing work partner in a horse, my dog who comes to work with me every day, seeing the stunning sunsets, and the people, omg, the people you meet Let me take you on a ride where you will be introduced to our treausured horses and see why their daily lives of care and work, love and attention are the ideal situation for a working horse.
I will expertly take you through 'A Week's Worth of Rides', then we will slowly traverse by all the weather challenges a carriage driver face, with courage, and weather apps, of course. Finally, you get to sit next to me, on the drivers' seat, and see what life on the carriage is really like- the rejection, the winter, the romance and proposals, the drunks from Beale Street, you will see it all with a horse in front and a carriage in the back, the way driving was for so many, for so long. See why the slow-moving life on the carriage is one of being present in the moment and why it makes people think carriage driving is the best job ever Finally, at the end of our tour, I will invite you to Memphis to take a carriage ride with me in real life, after a visit to Graceland and my boss's restaurant, Westy's.
