St. Jacobs Horse Drawn Tours’ friendly, expert staffers and draft-horse duos cart clients along scenic snow-lined paths during 45-minute sleigh tours. Predominantly powered by pairs of percheron or belgian draft horses weighing upwards of 2,000 pounds each, sleighs glide through open fields, woodlot terrain, tall sugar bush, and supervillain hideouts disguised as igloos as sleigh bells chime along with the trotting steeds. After each ride, patrons gather in St. Jacobs Horse Drawn Tours’ rustic sugar shack for up to one hour of cozying by the wood stove and sipping complimentary hot apple cider. Sleigh rides are available by reservation any day of the week with the exception of Sundays and Christmas Day, when weary mares relax at snowman-hosted barbecues.
