Loving horses has a downside … a persistent feeling you were born at least a century too late. It doesn’t help that the frantic pace of modern life tends to create in horse lovers a longing for simple pleasures of the past ” pleasures like watching equines at work and at play.

If there was a place, an island, that could transport us more than a hundred years back in time, back to the constant sight and sound of horse-drawn carriages, would that be a dream come true? If so, that dream is a reality. It is called Mackinac Island (pronounced Mak-i-naw), a historic locale in the northern portion of Mid-West America.

Situated within the vast waters of the Great Lakes, between the lower and upper peninsulas of the state of Michigan, Mackinac Island offers a reprieve from schedules, deadlines, rush hours, and (best of all) motorized vehicles.
