Start a new family tradition with a Thanksgiving or Christmas Sleigh Ride across the countryside of beautiful Sandpoint, Idaho. Sandpoint and surrounding areas have many ranchers and farmers, so you can easily find sleigh rides, but none more renown than Western Pleasure Guest Ranch located in the gorgeous Selle Valley. See Elk, Deer and more while enjoying the landscapes of Northern Idaho blanketed in snow.
As a blanket of white transforms North Idaho, visitors at Western Pleasure Guest Ranch enjoy scenic horse-drawn sleigh rides powered by one of our draft teams. Louie and Lonestar, Jake and Julie, Queen and Justice, Lady and Fancy or BC and Albert 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. With a wide variety of horse-drawn sleighs, 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 rides on December 24th and 25th.
If you are looking for a more intimate adventure, Bud’s steady trot will whisk you back in time as you glide along in this one horse open sleigh built just for two passengers. To complete your nostalgic winter experience come into the lodge to warm up in front of a crackling fire and enjoy hot drinks and fresh popped popcorn. Also available is a sleigh ride and dinner package. What could be better for your group or family then a hearty “country gourmet” dinner served in the lodge after your sleigh ride. Winter fun at the ranch also includes cross-country skiing, snow shoeing and down hill sledding.
