Horseback Riding and Sleigh Rides

at Lajoie Stables


Your trail ride will take you on a relaxing, serene tour through the hardwoods, on into a grove of Blue Spruce and then through the pristine open pastures. Views of Mount Mansfield will encompass you and take your breath away during your Vermont family vacation. As your tour ends you will cross into Black Creek to water your horse.

We are family owned and operated, for over 30 years. We accept all levels of riding ability, from the beginner to the more experienced rider. You can request a quiet, gentle ride or a faster paced ride. Our riders begin from ages 5 and up. All of our rides are private (just your group and the guide). Don't forget to bring your camera!

Duration: 1 Hour, plus 45 minute transportation each way
Times: Based on advanced reservations
Maximum Riders: Call for group availability
Cost: $50 per person



Experience Vermont as it was meant to be, in a two horse open sleigh! We offer all types of sleigh rides, whether it is a quiet romantic moonlit ride, or a family outing. We can take multiple sleighs at a time for the large family reunion, party, or just a winter vacation get together in Vermont.

As you arrive, we will meet you in our lower parking lot with the sleigh. Blankets will be waiting! We will sleigh past our family of goats, Scottish highlander cows, Shetland sheep and miniature donkeys. We then will enter the hardwood forest, where you can hear only silence. As your sleigh leaves the forest, you will see the snow covered grove of blue spruce trees, then on to the rolling meadows and views of the Green Mountains. Your breath will be taken away by just the peacefulness and serenity. Just think, no automobiles, no airplanes, and no pollution just as it was in days so long ago. As your ride comes to an end, your sleigh will pass through our herd of horses and maybe you will get a chance to visit with them! When you ride is complete you have the opportunity to stop in for hot cocoa, coffee, or tea in our warm up room. We are worth the drive!
