GILFORD, New Hampshire — Gunstock Mountain Resort introduces Sleigh rides this winter. In a recent visit with the star of the show Doc, a 14 year Belgian Draft Horse from Maine has adapted well to the his new Lakes Region home at the base of Gusntock. Ken Carver, who operates Cobble Mountain Stables at Gunstock, approached Gunstock after the summer to take advantage of the great trail network and mountainside views. “Sleigh rides are a perfect fit for Gunstock” say Ken Carver who does trail rides at Gunstock all summer. “The sleigh we have is a custom one horse open sleigh, and yes you can start singing jingle bells before you go. With the number of visitors to The Lakes Region and Gunstock, we are looking forward to a great inaugural year.” Sleigh rides in a custom sleigh can be fun for a family or romantic outing as the sleigh seats 4 adults.
The sleigh ride is about 20 minutes depending upon Doc’s mood and where he wants to take you. Blankets are included for you hide under, and Ken does a great narration of the area if you are interested in local facts.
