It started on my first visit to Disneyland in Los Angeles, California. Not a typical place for a horse encounter, but a memorial experience, none the less. I was horse-crazy in my youth – still am crazy in love with horses! Anywhere that I am able to go horseback riding, or at least make friends with a horse has been on my travel list since childhood. Whether it be a chance meeting with draft horses pulling the Horse Drawn Streetcars on Disney’s Main Street U.S.A. or snapping photos and video of Percheron horses taking guests through the streets of Quebec City in Canada, I’m open to horse encounters.
 
Here’s my latest travels with Quebec horse and carriages in Canada.
