Sleigh & Wagon Rides
Enhance your Northwoods adventure with a traditional sleigh or wagonette ride! Our gentle Percheron horses, Sid and Ice, will pull you on our exclusive wagonette or vis a vis sleigh with black velvet cushions and cozy blankets. The wagonette seats 6-8 comfortably in the back and our sleigh seats four adults comfortably in the back. Children can ride on laps, or up front with the driver! Better yet, consider the ultimate winter experience--a horse drawn sleigh ride and dog sled tour--exclusive to Positive Energy Outdoors! We offer rides year round, including a fall colors wagonette ride, kennel tour and horse logging equipment demonstration.
Sleigh and wagonette rides are offered 7 days a week and last about 40-45 minutes. All sleigh and wagonette rides are private party--you'll only ride with the people in your group. The cost is $175 for up to 4 people, and $275 for a group of up to 8.
Our sleigh season runs from mid-December through mid-March. We are located over the hill from Duluth, where there is more snow than near Lake Superior. Please call 218.391.0147 if you have questions about snow conditions. Positive Energy Outdoors is located 15 miles north of Duluth, 30 minutes from Duluth, 45 minutes from Two Harbors and 3 hours from the Twin Cities. Upon receipt of your deposit, you will receive detailed directions to find us!
Sleigh and wagon rides are available on site or we can come to you. We are leaders in hands on draft horse educational programs for all ages and offer half or full day driving clinics, draft horse day camps for youth in grades 2-8 as well as horse logging demonstrations, instruction and services.
