Hire a Guide
Hiring a guide or traveling with an outfitter is not only the “way to go” but also the “only way to go” for a horse drawn sleigh ride. Trained and experienced guides/drivers handle the horses and guide your sleigh to afford you with an experience of a lifetime.
Dress for the activity
- Wear loose, lightweight, warm clothing in several layers. Outer garments should be tightly woven, water repellent and hooded.
- Always wear a hat or cap on your head since half of your body heat could be lost through an uncovered head.
- Cover your mouth with a scarf to protect your lungs from extreme cold
- Mittens, snug at the wrist, are better than gloves because fingers maintain more warmth when they touch each other.
Follow the instructions of your driver at all times.
