Festive sleigh rides offered at Heritage Ranch

Sleigh rides through trees glowing with lights are coming to Heritage Ranch.

Sleigh rides through trees glowing with lights are coming to Heritage Ranch.

The equestrian centre will decorate trees along its sleigh and carriage path to create a winter wonderland for its Winter Lights Sleigh Tours.

“We’ll start running the lights this week to do some troubleshooting,” said Chelsea Ready, the ranch’s marketing co-ordinator.

Rides will be available daily from 4 p.m. starting on Nov. 15 and running until late February. Horse-drawn sleighs will travel beneath a lit archway created by the Waskasoo Park pathway bridge. They’ll follow a lit pathway of about 30 trees of varying sizes.

“The rides will last about 30 minutes,” said Ready, adding carriages will be used should there not be enough snow.

Tickets are $29 for adults, $12 for children and $2 for toddlers up to age three. A portion of those prices will be donated to Shalom Counselling, a charity helping individuals, couples and families with emotional and relationship concerns.

Bookings are available by calling 403-347-4977 or online at www.heritageranch.ca.
