Sleigh Riding in Stowe

During the winter season Stowe offers many sleigh rides options. From romantic 2 person sleigh rides to larger group sleighs filled with hay bales as seats, a ride through Stowe's snow-filled pastures and woods will be a treat to remember.

Gentle Giants at Topnotch:

Our Gentle Percheron and Belgian draft horses will await to pull you with their jingle bells ringing in a one or two horse open santa style sleigh with a curly dash. Enjoy a ride in our lovely new Romantic Sleigh for Couples. We will begin our journey through a charming covered bridge along an open brook on a winding wooded trail in the woods. Sleighs are all beautifully lit with enchanting lights for our evening rides. Warm blankets welcome you. Families and groups are welcome. Featured and recommended by Yankee, Shape, Boca Raton, and Boston Common magazines and Good Morning America. All rides are private for you and yours.
