NORMAL -- A Central Illinois man and his horse are turning heads with a different kind of transportation. Zack Hileman and his trusty sidekick, Randy, just started offering carriage rides.
    They're trotting around helping the city promote local businesses. When people climb aboard, Hileman says they're able to get a better look at retailers, restaurants and area recreation.
    City leaders say the new rides are a creative way for visitors to have fun and learn more about the area. So far, it's working. Hileman is currently offering rides on Sunday afternoons from 12-4.
