FREE Downtown Holiday Carriage Rides

Free Carriage Rides

Historic Downtown GJ Over Holidays

Join JR’s Carriage Service for FREE horse-drawn carriage rides in our beautiful historic Downtown Grand Junction. Carriage rides are being offered in an effort to promote and encourage downtown small business holiday shopping.

The carriage rides will take place every Saturday and Sunday from 12pm to 2pm. The pick-up location is located between 4th Street & 5th Street, on Main Street, in front of Cafe Sol. A carriage ride isn’t complete unless you get to meet and love on our gentle giants (a perfect photo opportunity).

While on the carriage you will tour the downtown area for around 10 minutes. Along the way you will learn about the historical landmarks, the various shops and dinning opportunities, the draft horse breed, and the art of driving teams of horses. Santa is never too far away – so make sure your kiddos bring their Christmas Wish List!

After your carriage ride experience, we recommend enjoying lunch at one of many delicious dinning options. The free carriage rides would not be possible without our partnership with the Small Businesses in Downtown Grand Junction. Please take a moment to follow “Downtown Grand Junction” on social media so that you are notified of future events (such as the free carriage rides).

The JR’s Team is looking forward to seeing you over the holidays in Downtown GJ! All photos provided by the beautifully talented Jami Davis Films. Merry Christmas from all of us at JR’s Carriage Service!

Athletic Math Scholar Becomes New Addition

Excited to WELCOME Kaysyn Chintala as the newest member of the JR’s Carriage Service Team.

Born in Meeker, Colorado and raised on a ranch south of town, Kaysyn grew up on the back of a horse. Ranch work, roping, showing and rodeoing are second nature and her favorite pastimes. Recently she discovered a new area of the equine industry where she guided in the Flat Tops Wilderness Area packing campers by horseback. Joining our team, Kaysyn is delighted to share the Old West heritage with those who are open to equine adventures.

Along with Kaysyn’s passion for horses, she fell in love with athletics where she pursued volleyball and basketball scholarships in the flatlands of Kansas. After finishing her college athletic careers and receiving her degree in Business Technology, she is now seeking her Bachelor’s in Mathematics at Colorado Mesa University. Kaysyn is thrilled to crossover her competitive edge from basketball to breakaway and team roping at local rodeos.
