Giddy up and celebrate winter like you’re in the wild west with an old fashioned sleigh ride. These sleigh rides take place in and around Park City, Utah and are a perfect way to celebrate the holidays, or just enjoy winter itself.
High Star Ranch Wagon Rides
Escape to the country at High Star Ranch in Kamas for a clydesdale-led wagon ride around the ranch’s residential property and into snowy terrain. Tours begin at the Country Store & Cafe where guests can grab a hot chocolate or a snack before venturing outdoors and onto the wagon. Unlike many other sleigh rides, this wagon rolls on and off snow, making it a unique horse-drawn experience. It’s also a highly limited option as rides run only until January 6 when most holiday breaks end.
We arrived just before 5:00 p.m. to check in for our sleigh ride then bundled up under thick blankets in the wagon. A few other families were along for the ride, but it never felt crowded. We loved the early time slot as it allowed us to enjoy a colorful sunset over Park City’s mountains. Having light left also meant better views of the horses and stunning country property! While just the 30-minute sleigh ride was a treat, you can upgrade your experience by adding on photos, dinner, and drinks inside State Road Tavern. However, this experience is available just for guests ages 21 and up. Note that all rides must be purchased online, in advance. No in-person transactions allowed.
