Fun Sleigh Rides in Duluth, MN
Enhance your Northwoods adventure with a traditional sleigh or wagonette ride! Our gentle Percheron horses, Sid and Ice, will pull you on our exclusive wagonette or sleigh with black velvet cushions and cozy blankets. The wagonette seats six to eight people comfortably in the back and our sleigh seats four adults comfortably in the back. Children can ride on laps, or up front with the driver! Better yet, consider the ultimate winter experience: a horse-drawn sleigh ride and dog sled tour, exclusive to Positive Energy Outdoors!
We offer rides year-round, including a fall colors wagonette ride, kennel tour and horse logging equipment demonstration. Our sleigh season runs from mid-December through mid-March. We are located over the hill from Duluth, where there is more snow than near Lake Superior. Please call us directly if you have questions about snow conditions.
Sleigh and wagon rides are available onsite or we can come to you. We are leaders in hands-on draft horse educational programs for all ages and offer half- or full-day driving clinics, draft horse day camps for youth in grades 2-8, as well as horse logging demonstrations, instruction and services.
