Winter Sleigh Rides

Gather and meet at Pinto Valley Ranch in our country hall until your guests have arrived.

The sleigh is pulled by a team of wonderful horses out along the scenic trails through the forest for 45 minutes to 1 hour. The sleigh holds 20 people max. This number includes adults and children.... We never want to overload the sleigh for the horses ;) Feel free to bring blankets and snuggle up with your friends and loved ones.

Included in the sleigh ride is the use of the country hall for one hour afterwards where you can warm up by the wood stove with a cup of hot chocolate that is included in the price. Read More
