Sleigh Rides!

Last Saturday me and my boss hooked up our belgian mare to her 4 seater sleigh, put a bell collar around her neck, and went around giving people rides!
It was my first time and I'd have to say it was pretty cool. I felt like I went back a few centuries. Haha
Does anyone else have a sleigh, or has been on a sleigh ride of some sort?

WHAT? No pics? I wanna see pics!


I WISH I had a sleigh, that would be so cool. I unfortunately don't have a horse trained to drive, either, but I am green. I love that kind of thing.

I was lucky enough to grow up with a friend of my Grandfather's around who had a belgin team and gave sleigh rides every winter...It was AMAZING!!!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

I've took a sleigh ride once. It was fun!

"On hyviä vuosia, kauniita muistoja, mutta kuitenkaan, en saata unohtaa,
Että koskaan en ole yksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Vaikka myrsky hetkeksi tyyntyykin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Ja pian taas uusin hönkäyksin, varjo seuraa onneain.
Hei tuu mun luo, pieneksi hetkeksi. Puhutaan, varjoni, valkoiseksi enkeliksi."

My boss took pictures, so maybe I can get her to email them to me.
But for me to take some I'm going to have to wait until it snows again.
There's not enough right now to take the sleigh out.
