Horse Drawn Sleigh Ride

It was a wonderful day for Winter fun. We spent the afternoon enjoying skating on an outdoor pond, tobogganing and best of all . . . . a horse drawn sleigh ride. Aren't these guys gorgeous!

Complete with jingle bells.

I think the adults liked the horses as much as the kids.

Each ride was about 45 minutes long around the property of a local golf course. A crisp blue sky and lots of sun today ~ I even got a bit of a sun burn.


I took more horse photos than people pics, LOL



They were quite friendly and let us melt the tiny icicles off their muzzles with our hands.


We ended the day with dinner in front of the fireplace and a glass of wine.

What a wonderful day you must have had Karen.
The snow looks so beautiful and the sky blue and to ride on a horse drawn sleigh, must have been the perfect day.

Then to finish it off with dinner by the fire and a glass of wine ~
