We ended up at Fair Winds Farm after searching for a sleigh ride in southern Vermont and discovering that many of them are $60 or more, which was out of our price range for a 1/2 hour diversion. The cost at Fair Winds Farm was $15 each, with a minimum price of $75 for a private excursion (which we decided to do). This is a working farm and Jay (the owner) uses his beautiful Suffolk Punch draft horses for all the field work. Our sleigh was pulled by Charlie and Phoebe, with Jay holding the reins and his young grandson Jonas as co-pilot. Our trip took us through the woods and over hill and dale. It was beautiful. Although the temperature was barely 30 degrees, we were warm and cozy nestled in a big pile of hay, with warm blankets to keep out the chill. While we trotted along, Jay told us a little about the horses they raise and the farm that he so clearly loves. It was a wonderful adventure and I will do it again if I get the chance.
