Northville Horse and Recreation’s horses pull vintage sleighs along the wooded trails and through the fields of the 60-acre farm as riders take in the wintry scenery. After a 30 minute jaunt, participants can head to the club room and lounge by the fire with a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. Sleigh rides are usually held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday by appointment only.

What if I have additional riders in my party?  Please contact us directly, we do allow add-ons if there is space available.  Add-ons are $50 per rider.
