What could be more magical than galloping through a winter wonderland on a horse drawn sleigh ride?
Here are two special places that offer magical horse-drawn sleigh rides. (Be forewarned: It ain't cheap.)
Horse-drawn Sleigh Rides at Apple Holler
5006 S. Sylvania Ave., Sturtevant, WI 53177
The old-fashioned sleigh rides at Apple Holler take you and your family through the snow-covered orchards and 100-year-old hardwoods, while you enjoy the scenery and listen to the clopping of the Amish Haflinger horses pulling you. Afterwards, you’ll enjoy s’mores around a campfire and a cup of hot cocoa or warm apple cider.
Winter 2017-2018 Cost: $80.00 for up to four people (plus tax) and $15.00 for additional person (plus tax)
