It’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together…
Who's ready for some old-fashioned Christmas fun on a first-class sleigh ride? Roden Barnyard Adventures is excited to be offering more sleigh (& wagon) rides since a great first winter in December 2020! After partnering with Paradise Ranch in 2019, we are thrilled that the horses have arrived at our farm and the trails will be lit with lights for a magical Christmas experience.
Listen to the sleigh bells ring while a team of percheron horses pull you on a sleigh across hundreds of beautiful wooded acres. Just the sleigh ride is worth the visit, but add thousands of Christmas lights to an evening sleigh ride and it’ll be a night to remember. Our team of percherons, Wilbur & Clyde, will lead you through the trails following the thousands of lights that light the way.
Before your ride and after, sit at the campfire and tell stories – or warm up inside the heated building with a cup of hot cider or hot chocolate. Spend some time visiting with friends while you play an old-fashioned board game. Guests are welcome to bring food & other beverages while enjoying a night with family and friends.
Come early, stay late. When selecting your reservation time, please keep in mind this will be the time your sleigh departs – we recommend arriving at least 25 minutes early. This old-fashioned sleigh will hold up to 12 people; perfect for family outings or holiday entertaining. Reservations are required! Contact us if you have a large group (24+) and want a date not listed on the calendar.
Please Note: If there is not snow on the ground, the percheron team will give you a ride in a wagon.
