Sleigh & Wagon Rides

...In a one (or two) horse open sleigh 

As a blanket of white transforms North Idaho, visitors at Western Pleasure Guest Ranch enjoy scenic horse-drawn sleigh rides or wagon rides powered by one of our draft teams. Louie and Lonestar, Jake and Julie, Queen and Justice, Doc and Duke, Major and Fancy or Cash and Cole will make you feel like a child again as they plod and jingle through a 2-mile loop trail of dense forests in the foothills of the Cabinet Mountains with fantastic views of the Selkirk Mountain Range. The ride follows a two-mile, loup route which takes about a half-hour.

With a wide variety of horse-drawn sleighs/wagons, including a five-passenger, three twelve passengers, and a two-passenger, we have the right size sleigh to accommodate your group. Sleigh rides are scheduled Monday – Saturday on the hour 11:00 to 6:00 pm and on Sundays 2:00 to 6:00 pm. Sorry, we do not offer sleigh/wagon rides on December 24th and 25th or January 1st.

If Old Man Winter hasn’t moved in and we don’t have enough snow for a sleigh ride, we simply switch the sleighs from runners to tires. You still get to enjoy the same vehicle, the same beautiful horses, and the same scenic two-mile loop route.
