Carrousel Horses Ready for the Day at Magic Kingdom Park

posted on February 23rd, 2015 by Jennifer Fickley-Baker, Social Media Manager

The horses, which were originally crafted in 1917 for Detroit Palace Garden Park, each sport looks all their own, dressed up in a myriad of colorful saddles, bridles, breast plates, armor and other festive gear. Is it me, or does the early morning sunshine cast just a touch more of a “fantasy” look to this classic attraction?
