Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides

Imagine yourself dashing through the snow, in a big old horse-drawn sleigh! Okay, well we know that isn’t how the song goes. But it is when talking about sleigh rides in snowy Steamboat Springs! Listen to sleigh bells jingling, ring-ting-tingling too while some gentle draft horse giants guide you through the snow-covered trees. In this ski town, it’s always lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with your significant other or the whole family! So snuggle up under the blanket and enjoy the starry Colorado night sky.

Bar Lazy L Ranch

At Bar Lazy L, you can have a sleigh ride you’ll never forget with the Yeager family. They are a sixth generation Routt County family, with the seventh generation being raised on the family ranch. These guys have been raising Percheron draft horses for years. In fact, the horses pulling your sleigh were born, raised, and trained on Bar Lazy L! Gentle giant doesn’t even begin to describe these guys—they are more like big teddy bears and are sure to work their way into your heart.

The dinner sleigh ride is a magical evening that is unforgettable! The Yeager family will provide complimentary shuttle service picking you up at various locations and driving you out to the ranch. When you arrive, the horse drawn sleighs will be ready to go. Jump on board, cuddle up, and enjoy the ride that follows the river through the pastures and trees to the loft of the remodeled barn. Inside, warm drinks, entertainment, and an evening of down home Yampa Valley hospitality await! Learn about the family history and various western artifacts accumulated over the years while you enjoy some traditional western music. After dinner, relax and enjoy some more music before heading back to the shuttles.
