I am told that Carousel is American and goes around anti clockwise because people riding it use their right hands to grab the ring. Merrygoround is English and goes around clockwise, doesn't have a ring, and people in real life, get onto the horses from the horses left side. Hence the clockwise movement. I also read that a Carousel is actually a sport between Knights, centuries ago. And then there can be different animals and these days cars etc. and I am sure there is a lot more I have left out. and I am not sure this looks as if it is moving!
