December Horse-Drawn Rides

When: Sat., Dec. 24, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and Dec. 26-31, 11 a.m.-2 p.m. 2016

Nothing says “season’s greetings” and “holiday cheer” like dashing through the snow in a horse-drawn sleigh. For several days this month, families can take in the scenery at Shelburne Farms while being pulled along by the magnificent hoofed species. No snow? No worries! Horse-drawn wagon excursions are an equally fun and festive alternative. Those hoping to hear those sleigh (or wagon) bells jingling should dress for the weather and gather at the farm’s Welcome Center. These 20-minute jaunts depart every half hour, and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Now, giddyap!

Price: $8-10; free for kids 2 and under.
