As the snow begins to fall, think about how wonderful it would be to ride in a horse drawn sleigh! Relax with your loved ones and experience the beauty of Vermont, from the snow-capped balsams, to views of Mount Mansfield, all from the comfort of your private sleigh.
Located just 5 minutes down the road, Gentle Giants offers a variety of sleigh rides for all types of groups, whether it is a quiet romantic moonlit ride or a family outing.
Upon arrival, guides will meet you in the lower parking lot with the sleigh. Blankets will be waiting! Sleigh past goats, Scottish highlander cows, Shetland sheep and miniature donkeys. Then enter the hardwood forest, where you can see the snow-covered grove of Blue Spruce trees before reaching rolling meadows and views of the Green Mountains. As your ride comes to an end, your sleigh will pass through our herd of horses and you will get a chance to visit with them! When your ride is complete, you have the opportunity to stop in for hot cocoa, coffee or tea in the warm up room.*All services are subject to change and are always weather dependent. Activities require warm winter clothing including snow pants, a warm coat, gloves, and boots. Sunglasses/goggles are always recommended.
