Sleigh Rides in Maine
Enjoy a Horse Drawn Sleigh Ride at Carousel Horse Farm
Maine Winter brings a serenity and glimmer that is best experienced in a horse drawn sleigh being pulled through the Winter Wonderland of Casco, right in the heart of the Sebago Lakes Region. Enjoy the sparkling snow-covered trees and fields of snow drifting on the wind while you glide along with family and friends to enjoy this wonderful season together. We have private and group sleighs available. Enjoy a date night that she will never forget or a family outing the kids will not stop talking about.
We Hope to Have Enough Snow Soon!
Reservations can be made for group rides on the Wednesday before the weekend you want to go on your sleigh ride. Please do not reserve before that time. We have to know the weather and the trail conditions before accepting group sleigh ride reservations.
The Couples Sleigh Rides
The small red sleigh is for Couples Sleigh Rides only. Full moon rides are sure to make a check mark on someone’s bucket list the weather has to cooperate so these rides will be planned within three days of the event. We will only offer this on clear nights with a temperature above 20 degrees including wind chill.
- Monday through Sunday – $125 Per Couple.
Both sleighs are available during the week for groups or individuals that would like to join us for a sleigh ride. The larger sleigh can be reserved for a group of 8 per ride, for 30 minutes for $225 and the red sleigh can be reserved for a couple for 30 minutes for $100. We will open the cafe with a limited menu during these weekday reservations so you can get a hot drink and take care of your sweet tooth.
- Group Sleigh – $225 / 30Mins – Upto 8 People
- Couples Sleigh – $125 / 30Mins – Couples Only
2018 GROUPON HOLDERS. Trail rides and sleigh rides are canceled indefinitely until the ice on the trails has either been melted completely (this will take quite a few warm days or rain in the wooded areas) or a snow storm of 8 inches or more comes along. Looking at the 30 day forecast its unlikely, even if we get a large storm of snow, that is will last very long with little or no base underneath it, so opportunities so sleigh ride or trail ride if ice is still down will be a very small window after the storm. Due to this we will be extending the expiration dates on all Groupons. Please read closely and make sure you know what type of Groupon you have, especially if it was given to you as a gift.
The Winter Wonderland Trail Ride will be extended to June 10, 2018. Weekends only, except April Vacation, we will definitely do Wednesday during that week and possibly up to two other days as long as the weather and trail conditions are good. We may also open Memorial Day, Monday but will only decide if the three day forecast says the weather will be good that day. We have a continuous Groupon Redeal program every year, where you can use your Groupon last minute (within 24 hrs) to fill an existing ride during the summer months which allows you full value after its expiration date. More details will be here and on our website as we approach summer.
SLEIGH RIDE Groupon Holders will be extended to the last weekend in March 2019. Reservations will only be last minute, within three days so we know the weather and trail conditions. And weekends may be limited, we will announce that at the beginning of the 2019 season. Sleigh ride Groupons can be exchanged for trail rides in the summer months. A Group Sleigh ride Groupon for two is worth $30 toward a $130 trail ride for two and so on. A Group Sleigh ride for four is worth $60 toward a $130 trail ride for two or a $260 trail ride for four. Just to give you an idea of how it would work. Remember to use the on-line reservation form to make a reservation with a Groupon.
Group Sleigh Rides
The large sleigh holds 8 adults and will be available 11 to 3 every weekend as long as trail conditions are favorable. Reservations are recommended but not required. The cost is $15 per adult, $10 for children 4 to 12 (all children must be accompanied by an adult) or $45 for a family of four with two children under the age of 13. The way our reservation system will work, is that we will give our customers a time, such as 1 pm. Everyone should arrive and be ready to board at 1 pm, but if others reserved for the same time were here earlier they will go first and your group may have to wait until the 1:30 trip. That way if anyone shows up late, we can still fill each ride and be ready for the next one. So be prepared to come have a good time, hang out around the fire and watch everyone enjoy themselves. We will not reserve more people per hour than we can take so you will be guaranteed a spot during that hour. These rides are about 20 minutes long to ensure that the horses get a 10 minute rest between each trip.
- $15 / Adult = 14 or older
- $10 / Child = 4 to 13
- $Free / Child = 3 or under

The Sleigh Rides Route
Sleigh rides will begin as soon as we have at least two storms equaling 8 or more inches of snow. The sleighs will travel through our property and along a wooded trail out to the back pasture with a great view of Mt. Washington. We will circle the pasture and make several passes for the best views of the mountains. We often see deer and wild turkey in our pine grove too! Weekend rides last approximately 20 mins. If you’d like a longer ride you can reserve outside our regular hours at our normal rates.
