Come enjoy a dinner sleigh ride with your family, and ours. Start off the evening with a sunset horse drawn sleigh ride up to the dining hall. Take a seat and enjoy the Brisket, Chicken, or Veggie dinner. The dinner comes with sides, a roll, and a homemade dessert. Listen to our two wranglers sing country, and Christmas songs with two stepping and line dancing. Head back over to the sleigh and finish off the night with a magical star lit ride to your vehicles.

If you do not see a date that works for you please feel free to give us a call!

Please note that sleigh rides are snow permitted. If we do not have enough snow the ride becomes a wagon ride, which is similar to the sleigh with wheels instead of runners.
