This is a must do! Rochelle was wonderful and her love and care for her horses was evident. Do not let cold temperatures deter you, she has cozy thick blankets that keep you toasty and cozy even in single digit temperatures! Thank you Rochelle for making our weekend even better! !

A sleigh ride in the snow has been on my bucket list and Gentle Giants fulfilled my wish. The ride was perfect--cold but the nice blanket they provided was wonderful. Great, obliging horse named Clayton and friendly owner and staff made the experience perfect, Couldnt have asked for more. Somewhat expensive but hey, if it is your bucket list, it's... More

We went there for information, we went to visitors centre in stowe and it looked too pricy. But when we got there we discovered it was affordable and we went for it! The driver was so nice, taking pictures for us and telling us stories. Very friendly people and the horses are beautiful. We had jack a 16 year old... More

We had an appt for 3 but arrived a earlier but they were more than accommodating. It was a very romantic and peaceful ride with it being just the two of us. The scenery was beautiful as were the horses.

We just took our first family sleigh ride with Gentle Giants this week. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for an authentic trip with some beautiful horses. The owner was very accommodating and obviously takes great care of her horses. Thank you Gentle Giants for making our trip so enjoyable. We'll be back.

I took my family to Stowe for the first time this year and searched for all the great attractions. I was lucky to have been told about Gentle Giants Sleigh Rides. It was an incredible treat -- especially for the kids. The horses were beautiful, the staff was very kind and the sleighs were like out of a movie. They... More

The grounds were beautiful and the horses were gorgeous. Friendly service and a picturesque snowy trail-ride.

The horses at Gentle Giants are truly a sight to see. Absolutely gorgeous, majestic, and gentle. The staff was very friendly and courteous. It was really cool for us, because we're native Floridians, so dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh, became a reality for us! AS little pricey, but worth doing at least once.

Unorganized business, very expensive for a 20min ride. Had an appointment for 11:00am and whe we got there the place was closed. Talked to the Mr. working with the horses and he said he will start working at 12:30 no matter what the appointment said. Ride was nice but not worth the price.

We visited Stowe the first week of January. Taking a sleigh ride was #1 on our list of things to do. We called the day we arrived in Stowe. We got a voice mail recording instead of a person. We left a message with our name and ph#, stating we'd like to schedule a sleigh ride. We were there for... More
