Summary:

Horse and buggy rides. Stage the horses and equipment outside if they are going to be operational from May thru October, or indoors if this becomes a popular year round activity. Select a route. The first one that comes to mind is along Miss. River Boulevard. It could be cordoned off, or one lane could be designated 'Horse right of way.' Or it could be operated in a park like the one by Crosby lake.

I've seen them in New York. It's romantic and popular. Saint Paul is a perfect candidate for Horse and buggy rides. It is a quaint city, with much appeal. It helps people connect with the past. It gives visiting tourists something special by which to remember Saint Paul. People love horses and are only seen at the State Fair.

Saint Paul has great cultural diversity. This will be one more thing to give it character and appeal. Jobs will be created. Businesses will benefit from the added traffic to the designated area. The horses could even be chosen from rescue situations, donations, etc.

Why do you think people will recognize or remember your idea after it comes to life? How might it inspire others to do something similar in their community? (4000 characters maximum or approx. 500 words)

You don't forget a buggy ride. So many great stories will come of it. Proposals, marriages, corporate deals. There's something magical about taking a carriage ride. The route could blossom into a permanent amusement area with added amusements.
