World’s best sleigh rides

Like sledding, sipping hot chocolate and other winter pleasures, we never quite outgrow the thrill of traveling in a horse-drawn sleigh.

Of all the great places to go for a sleigh ride in Colorado, they chose one where the sleigh is pulled by a MACHINE? What idiots.

Thomas, if you had looked at picture 4 & 5 you would have noticed that there was just one horse in each one.   MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE

They missed one of the greatest sleigh rides; Kitzbuhel,Austria.  I used to take my family to Kitzbuhel for a ski vacation every year for 3 weeks and one of the highlights was a sleigh ride up the mountain to the Goldener Hotel.  The fellow who owns the sleigh was the Austrian champion yoddler and he would "Yodel" for us on the way up the mountain.  A million stars in the sky on a clear night with a flask of 180 proof rum and coke  and a warm blanket and we were on our way into heaven!!!!!!!!!!!  Best memories we have of our trips to Europe..  The peace and serenity was almost undescribable........

The article said "A one horse open sleigh". So far I haven't seen one, they  all have two or more horses.
The song dose not say a two horse open sleigh.....
Just an observation.

In Sweden it is possible to ford the fjords in a Ford, affordability notwithstanding.
