My family and I have visited Gentle Giants several times, in both Winter and Summer. The horses are beautiful and we were given permission to pet and get to know them. The ride is beautiful and completely relaxing. My children loved it which makes life for all of us better!

The horses are beautiful and are well-loved and cared for. So nice to take a ride through the countryside away from cars.

It was a wonderful experience having a sleigh ride in the snow. Ride does not last that long, but we enjoyed every minute of it.

We had an interesting experience with Rochelle of Gentle Giants. Originally we booked the trip for a Tuesday, but then called back a week in advance and changed it to Wednesday. When we showed up, she had no recollection of us changing the date and kept saying, "i had it all set up for you yesterday!!" We also had no... More

I must say this first...I read reviews on Gentle Giants before I chose them and whoever wrote negative things, was just WRONG on all accounts. We looked up the sleigh ride options, which there were 3. One was closed and we had 2 left....Gentle Giants is who we choose. Upon arrival, it was 19 degrees and snowing. PERFECT for a... More

We booked a sleigh ride as part of a package with the B&B we were staying at. It was a neat experience and extremely picturesque Vermont with the red sleighs and the big horses. Our guide was friendly and answered our questions, though it was hard to hear him from the back of the sleigh. That said, we were in... More

First of all this is a very good experience - especially with children and they all thoroughly enjoyed it. However - as the paying adult there are some major disappointments. Firstly we were told the ride lasts around 25/30 minutes and we were back within 15. There was no commentary about the area or the horses from the sleigh-driver to... More
