Experience the magic and romanticism of a horse drawn carriage ride through the Vail Village or a Wild West adventure in the pastures of Wolcott. Snuggle up with someone you care about and tour a magical winter wonderland or stargaze with your family from the warmth of a horse drawn sleigh. Whether the sun is shining brightly or snow is falling lightly it’s a ride you’ll always remember.
If you prefer the seclusion and serenity of the Rocky Mountain backcountry to the hustle and bustle of Vail then you may want to consider a sleigh ride. You can kick off your skis and leave all of the work to the horses! Enjoy breathtaking views of the Colorado Rockies while taking a mid-day sleigh ride through snow-covered pastures. In the evening you can snuggle up under a cozy blanket and enjoy a starlit journey. Relax to the jingle of the sleigh bells while gliding along under a star-spangled sky. Embrace the romance of lightly falling snow, sip warm drinks, dine on gourmet cuisine, fireside, and enjoy being serenaded on a memorable trip through the high country.
For a Wild West experience head out to the 4 Eagle Ranch where the kids can roast marshmallows by an open fire and the adults do the two-step to live country music. Or for an alternative source of transportation through the Vail Village book your winter or summer experience with the Rocky Mountain Carriage Company. You may also want to explore Beaver Creek resort by night and in that case the Beaver Creek Stables will be more than happy to accommodate. Lastly, for a more secluded carriage or sleigh experience coupled with a gourmet meal at the Timber Hearth Grill check out Bearcat Stables in Cordillera, the place where rugged meets elegant.
