Winter Sleigh Rides & Rates

Thank You for visiting Fantail Farm!

Our sleigh rides are 45-55 minutes in length, through the woods and fields of our 120 acre farm.   During your trip there is a possibility to see Bald Eagles, Whitetail Deer and other forest critters! You’re welcome to bring your own blankets and beverages. Hot cocoa free to guests is available at the end of the ride, to enjoy while meeting the other horses or to take with you!  

We have a variety of sleighs to meet the needs of all of our customers – from a cozy two-seater to a larger 12 seater!

We have several sleighs and teams to accommodate your large groups!

Our hours are by appointment and primarily weekends. We have 4 time slots- 10 a.m., 12 Noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.  These spaces in time are for our equine teams to rest up, or be changed out.  It gives our teamsters a chance to warm up as well.
