Sleigh Ride Directory for 2015

Sleigh rides are a great outdoor activity for those cooler crisp days. Where I'm from we don't get much snow and I've never actually been on a sleigh ride. It's definitely on my bucket list. I conducted a little bit of research online looking for some nearby sleigh rides. I thought I'd share my findings with you. Be sure to call ahead before driving any distance as there are many factors that could cause them to not be operating the day you plan to attend.

Sleigh rides are very dependent upon the weather. Another factor could be the health of the horse(s) and the driver. They could also have a private party booked, etc. It's just best to check before you go.

You should also ask any questions you may have regarding the type of sleigh they have, the length of the journey, and whether you should bring blankets. Make sure you also know the price and if you have the correct form of payment. It's not likely that every mom and pop sleigh ride takes Visa and Mastercard.

As you go through the list below you'll find that many of the sleigh rides are held at tree farms. Many of the Christmas tree farms include sleigh rides because it's a natural fit. Imagine how much fun you and your family can have searching for that perfect Christmas tree

Thank you Bayoulady.....it's pretty much the same here in Texas. Tractor-drawn hayrides at that. LOL

WOW - I didn't even know you could do such a thing. I like the sound of this and will definitely take a ride if I'm ever in a cold country during Christmas. Great research KCC.

KCC Big Country 5 years ago from Central Texas Author

Thank you Travelespresso! It's been on my bucket list for a long time. I'm determined to do it one of these days. Figured I'd do the research to see where they are. If I'm curious about it, I figured others might be as well.

Kcc-what a great hub. Again, the title caught my eye and I was sucked in. I have gone sleigh riding and it is a blast. I am knocked over by the amount of research you put in this...a whole LIST state by state. You took the work out of it for us.

I used to live in MI and am surprised that they are the lead (or at least neck in neck w/ N.H.) in the tree farm/sleigh ride business. Lots to choose from.

Yes, by all means find a place and take a ride. You'll get a kick out of it.

BTW-I notice there is even a place listed for here in NC. :) Sweet.

I know, Sagebrush_mama....I think that's why it interests me so much. Hayrides are fun though too. :) I've been on a horse-drawn carriage ride too. That was fun.

Wow.. tons of great information. Make sure to add Utah to your list with Hardware Ranch, and Snowed Inn in Park City. I have done both of those rides and they are incredible.


Laura 5 years ago

Sleigh rides are more enjoyable. When going with friends and family, it is something more entertaining. Weather conditions, health of horses and driver decide the ride. Good to have such rides...


KCC Big Country profile image

KCC Big Country 5 years ago from Central Texas Author

Thanks, In The Doghouse! I have now added the two you've been to.

Thanks Laura. The reasons you gave are also a good reason to do this more than once because each ride will be different.
