OC Carriage Rides Met With Safety Concerns

Given how many of the resort’s summertime visitors come from central Pennsylvania, the sight of horse-drawn carriages on the street may not be that much of a departure.

Nevertheless, the city’s Police Commission expressed some skepticism this week over a proposal to expand the off-season carriage ride program into the peak months, utilizing a route that would have the horse-drawn vehicles cross town on Second Street and do most of their route on the bay side of town.

“If I didn’t think I could do it safely, I wouldn’t be asking,” said Randy Davis of R&B Ranch, who has conducted wintertime carriage rides on the Boardwalk and surrounding areas for the past two years. Davis also operates carriage tours in Berlin.
