Sleigh & Carriage Rides at Bretton Woods
Carriage rides are a delightful and timeless way to tour the grounds of the Omni Mount Washington Resort. Reserve a private, semi-private or group ride and experience a classic horse-drawn carriage ride. As the snow starts to fall, guests have the unique opportunity to explore our trails in the comfort of one of our horse-drawn sleighs. Sit back and relax as we tour you around the grounds the way guests have for centuries. Experience a different sort of horsepower, as the sled runners glide across the snow and the sleigh bells jingle on. Reservations are required; please contact the Activities Concierge Desk at (603) 278–8989.

The kids (and Mom and Dad!) will talk about their special morning at The Equestrian Center for years to come after a hands-on visit to the stables to assist the kind staff with horse care and maintenance. An introduction to equestrian skills will prepare them for a ride on their own, and the program concludes with a short, controlled pony ride around the corral.
