"What a great decision it was to schedule a sleigh ride at Summit Wagon & Sleigh during our recent vacation in Park City, Utah! Due to warm weather and minimal snow, our sleigh ride turned into a horse-drawn wagon ride – and what a wonderfully memorable ride it was!!!! Thayne and his father Wendell are warm-hearted lovers of life, and they offer genuine hospitality at their fourth-generation 1,000-acre ranch. They give urban dwellers like us the rare opportunity to catch a close-up glimpse of life in rural Utah.
Sherry and Shar are an impressive team of Percheron horses, and they respond to VERBAL cues as they get harnessed and hitched to the wagon! Their giant hooves clomp their way over small bridges and through the fields. They remain totally calm as the herd of Angus cattle cross the field to swarm the wagon, the fastest cows munching on the edges of hay bales while the wagon is still moving! When the wagon stops, Thayne hoists hay bales off the end of the wagon, and all the cattle get their chance to eat.
Tip is their working dog who happily runs ahead of the wagon, around the wagon, and off into the fields to herd cattle just for pure joy and also on verbal cue from Thayne.
Beautiful wooded river bottoms and mountain vistas combine with the human interest of family stories to create a memory to last a lifetime.
If you’re going to be in the Park City area looking for a ‘non-touristy’ excursion, you can’t beat Summit Wagon & Sleigh! I highly recommend it!"
"The sleigh ride was the perfect length to enjoy the experience of being pulled by some beautiful horses and in a hand made sleigh while it was 17 degrees outside. The owner was really friendly and shared his knowledge of sleigh riding with us. The warm barn for hot chocolate or apple cider (your choice) was the perfect ending to our time at Summit Wagon & Sleigh. I highly recommend calling ahead and arranging a private sleigh ride if you’re in the area!"
"All my Hallmark Christmas dreams came true today! We bundled up the family and enjoyed a BEAUTIFUL sleigh ride through the freshly fallen snow with Thayne and Presley of Summit Wagon & Sleigh. The sleigh bells were jingling, the hot cocoa warmed our souls, and we definitely felt the holiday spirit! We look forward to making this a yearly tradition. You should, too!"
"We just spent an evening with Summit Wagon and Sleigh as a family, we really loved the hay ride through the snow with the horses and sleigh bells, like a step back in time. Thanks Thayne for helping us make some wonderful Christmas memories!"
