We are excited to announce our feature story in the Fence Post! The Fence Post is a nationwide agricultural based newspaper that reaches around 80,000 readers each week. The article on JR’s Carriage Service highlights our educational horse-drawn wine tours in Palisade, Colorado. In addition to learning about wine, our clients have an opportunity to hitch a ride in the drivers seat. Each participant gets to take hold of the reins and experience the art of driving a team.

Hitched In GJ Bridal Experience

After much anticipation, the Hitched in GJ Bridal Experience event has come and gone. JR’s Carriage Service was featured as the “Grand Prize” vendor after offering a prize package, for one lucky bride and groom, valued at $1,000. The wedding expo attracted hundreds of brides-to-be to partake in the various hands-on activities the Western Slope wedding vendors had to offer.

I spent four hours that morning cleaning “Commander n’ Chief” which we had hitched to our black “New Victoria” wedding carriage. The ‘boys’ are starting to get their winter coats which made them look like giant black teddy bears. Located at the entrance, our booth made a great first impression of the experience the brides were going to get at the show. In addition to featuring our wedding carriage, our booth highlighted our horse-drawn pub crawls and wine tours (the perfect bachelor/Bachelorette party idea). I was very proud of the boys for hanging out at the expo all day – on their best behavior. We would take a break from our booth and give a couple rides around the nearby parking lot to some of the younger spectators.

It was really exciting to see and visit with so many eager brides. September of 2013 seems to be a very popular time of the year to take someone’s hand in marriage. We should be finding out very soon who the winner of the grand prize will be! Can’t wait to be a part of their special day! A huge THANK YOU to the staff at Hitched In GJ for putting on this event!
