Experience the Magic of a Horse-Drawn Sleigh Ride in Eagle River, Wisconsin

Horse-Drawn Sleigh Ride in Eagle River

Rocking W Stables in Eagle River, Wisconsin, turns winter into a magical time when they bring out their big Belgian and Percheron draft horses for sleigh rides for families and others from early December through New Year’s Day. Group rides are available from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

After spending a day out on the snowmobile or cross-country ski trails, kick back and relax with a memorable ride. By the time the ride ends, you might find yourself humming, “Over the river and through the woods, to grandmother’s house we go…”

Led by the gentle horses, the sleigh or wagon weaves its way through beautiful wooded trails of the Northwoods with a warming bonfire, deliciously rich hot chocolate at the halfway point, and lots of Christmas cheer the whole way through! The rides last about an hour, and you just might see wildlife such as white-tailed deer and red squirrels near the trail.

Rocking W’s bigger sleighs each hold 20 to 22 people, and they have three of those big sleighs if a large group wants to go together for an outing. They have two vis-à-vis sleighs. One passenger can sit next to the driver of a vis-à-vis sleigh, and four to six people can be seated in the back, which has two facing seats. If romance is in the air, cozy up with a loved one in one of their cutter sleighs.

Rocking W Stables is located at 1890 Pleasure Island Road, just off Highway 45 on Eagle River’s north side. Call (715) 617-6779 for information or reservations.
