The Magic of Horse Drawn Carriage Rides

The clap of horses hooves and jingle bells embodies the true spirit of the holidays. This gentle adventure is great for all ages.

Chafin Farm from Sweet Home has been bringing their beautiful surrey carriage drawn by the striking Belgian Draft team to Black Butte Ranch since 2009. Belgians are known for their gentle charm, and their striking looks; with thick muscular necks and shoulders, sandy-colored manes, and feathering on their legs. They make great wagon horses due to their gentle nature and their slow, steady trots.
