Winter Wonder Sleigh Rides In Southern Vermont

Townshend, Vt. -- Take a journey back in time, and escape to one of the most
unique places in Vermont.

Friesians of Majesty, a horse breeding and training farm the heart of southern
Vermont's ski resorts, offers a quintessentially New England -- and romantic --
sleigh ride. Glide through 650-acres of forests and snow meadows on a majestic,
elegant, jet-black friesian-drawn team.

The picturesque farm is surrounded by majestic mountains, the perfect
backdrop for a special sleigh ride. Guests are taken on the farm’s private trails,
groomed especially for the sleigh, through forest and snow covered fields. The
scenery and peace of the woods, animal life and trails takes one back to nostalgic

Friesians of Majesty can accommodate up to four or five adults on the sleigh,
and children of all ages are welcome. The sleigh rides are typically 45 minutes
long unless guests opt to stop for vistas or wildlife.

The farm also offers the option of a farm tour after a sleigh ride. The farm tour
includes cookies, hot drinks, a guided tour of the facilities, meeting the horses
and a chance to play with the foals born last spring.

Friesians of Majesty is the only farm of its kind in Vermont to offer the public
unique equine experiences in the winter. They are located in the heart of
Vermont's Green Mountains on a 650-acre full-service breeding and training
facility. They are also the largest friesian breeding farm in the US dedicated to
the promotion and development of the friesian horse and friesian crosses as
modern sporthorses.
