  • Ride Host/Hostess

    Mackinac Island

    For those not wanting to work directly with our horses in the barn or driving a team, being a Ride Host/Hostess is a great opportunity!  Work downtown greeting, directing, and assisting customers in the loading of tour carriages.  This is often one of the first impressions a customer gets of Carriage Tours so a friendly, enthusiastic person is a must!
