It’s lovely weather for a sleigh ride together in Montana
What's more Christmas than a sleigh ride? You see it in all the old movies. The perfect Christmas sleigh ride with your new love pulled by a regal looking horse in a winter wonderland. (Unless you're driven by Kramer from Seinfeld, but that's another story for another day.)
I didn't know that there were places for a sleigh ride in Montana. And not just a couple of them either. I should have known Montana offers this, but I'm not the person who chooses outdoor activities in sub zero temperatures.
I found 7, but there are more. To make the cut, it had to be easy to find prices for the sleigh rides. If you want to check out what they offer, hit the link on each description. There's a picture from each place following the descriptions.
