Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides

Dates: December

Information: Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides are fun for the whole family. Join us when the snow flies and we’ll hitch up one of our draft horse teams to take your group out for a Sleigh Ride through Jester Park.

Cost: $250 per group

Party Size: Our sleigh can accommodate up to 7 adults. Children who can comfortably sit on an adult's lap do not need to be included in your head count. If you expect your child will want to sit on their own, please include them in your total party count.

Need to Know: Sleigh Rides require a minimum of 6 inches of packed snow as a proper base for the sleigh. Sleigh rides may be substituted for a wagon ride at the discretion of JPEC and the sleigh/wagon drivers who will assess the footing daily.
