Nooooo! The only reason my parents could get me to go to the store growing up, and now the only reason I can get my kids to go, is going bye-bye.
The popular penny horse rides at King Soopers in Colorado are about to be gone. According to 9News;
Eddie Bennett, whose family has maintained the horses and operated Roundup Music out of Sterling for decades.
“It is difficult, it’s nerve-wracking, it’s sad to see this era come to an end,” said Bennett, who refers to himself as a third-generation penny horse trainer.
The horses have been in King Soopers since 1947,when Bennett said his great grandfather made a handshake agreement with founder Lloyd King to place one of his penny horses in each of his supermarkets. King’s part of the agreement? That the ride stay just one cent, and they have for decades.
Bennett said he’s hopeful that King Soopers will have a change of heart, but if not, people can call 970-522-2720 to adopt a penny horse.
