The Golden Horseshoe Tour Co.
The Golden Horseshoe Tour Co. offers sleigh ride tours of the Colorado backcountry! Their Belgian draft horse teams but beautiful cherry-red sleighs through the snow-covered trails of the White River National Forest. Take their scenic Hot Cocoa sleigh ride, or step back in time on their mining campaigner theater sleigh ride! Here’s what you need to know.
The Mining Camp Dinner Theater Sleigh Ride
Take a step back in time on the mining camp dinner theater sleigh ride! Your time machine will be Santa’s sleigh driven but a team of beautiful draft horses. They will lead you through the trails and back to an 1860’s mining camp where you will enjoy hearty mountain food and family dinner theater to boot!
This is truly an unparalleled sleigh ride experience and fun for the whole family. As you ride through the magical winter wonderland, you will see pine trees fade in and out of the night sky while snow glistens like diamonds in the warm light of the lantern. Your sleigh driver will share stories that will keep you entertained the whole way.
Upon your arrival at the 1860’s mining camp, lamp light floods the authentic dining hall while wood burning stoves head the area. They have an equally rustic outdoor area with a heated fur trapper tent, blacksmith shed, and even a mine shaft house. Historic artifacts are everywhere you look and the aroma of handmade apple pies, hearty beans, corn on the cob, and heavenly hot chocolate bubbles out of one of the stoves.
During dinner, enjoy the dinner theater show! You never know who will be there to entertain… mountain men telling tales of trapping, hunting, and mountain women? Or will it be the Unsinkable Molly Brown bringing her unique story to life? Or perhaps the delightful Dance Hall Girl playfully weaving stories of miners? This show will give you a glimpse into historic Breckenridge and what life was really like. Laughter will flood the room as the show goes on. At the end, hop on board your magical sleigh for a ride back under the starry night skies.
The Hot Cocoa Scenic Sleigh Ride
Take a drive up the Swan River Valley on Tiger Road just outside of Breckenridge to the meeting point for scenic sleigh rides. Upon arrival, two gentle giants will be fully harnessed and waiting to pull Santa’s sleigh through the Breckenridge mountains. Cozy up under the blankets and enjoy the ride through postcard-perfect territory.
Gorgeous blue Colorado skies and snow-capped mountain peaks serve as the back drop for this leisurely high country winter activity. The ride will make a brief stop at the scenic overlook for you to enjoy views of the Swan River Valley and imagine the gold mining activity of the past. Then listen to sleigh bells jingling once again as your trip continues. Return to the lodge where a cup of hot cocoa awaits your group. This promises to be a wonderful memory to add to your Breckenridge vacation.
Private Sleigh Ride
The private romantic sleigh ride is the perfect way to propose, celebrate an anniversary, have an intimate wedding, or just snuggle up with loved ones. Bring up to 4 adults and a small child that can fit on your lap, cozy up under blankets, and ride through the enchanted, snow covered forest in your majestic one-horse open sleigh.
The sleigh used exclusively for private romantic sleigh rides was custom made to model the Hudson Valley Sleigh popular between 1850 and 1901. It was used only by the wealthy elite of the day. Black with burgundy leather seats, the swan-bodied sleigh exemplifies the elegance prevalent during the Victorian era.
The horse who pulls this gorgeous sleigh is a black Percheron named King’s Ransom. Standing at 17 hands and weighing in at 2,000 pounds, this beautiful gentle giant also comes from a storied breed. Percheron’s originated in the La Perche region of France and were bred to carry knights into battle. King loves his job and loves attention, so be sure to love on this big guy!
