Williamsburg Trip: Bits and Bridles Tour

We did something different on this Williamsburg trip, and signed up for the “Bits and Bridles Tour,” which allowed us to go see behind the scenes in the Colonial Williamsburg Coach and Livestock Department. We learned about the period vehicles they use for living history demonstrations and guest carriage rides, walked through the modern stables, and learned about the historic breeds program. I recommend it to any history+animal lovers out there!

Here is a sequence of photos where Mike asks me to do “anime fingers,” but I get distracted by the horse…
