“Very enjoyable”

Gentle Giants Sleigh and Carriage Rides
Reviewed 18 June 2014

A delightful time with Rochelle , our guide, and Mac , the horse . We had a nice carriage for 5. We took lots of pictures and then went for a leisure ride out to the meadow. It was about a 30 minute ride for 34.50 per person. It was a gorgeous day and we had a very nice time. Would love to come back in the winter for a sleigh ride , but it was nice being the only ones during the off season.

Gentle Giants was a great bargain and a wonderful ride throughout the meadow near the recreation path. It was only about $35 per person and the rides are just for you and your family. Our guide Rochelle was friendly and informative. The horses were sweet and well cared for. Some of the horses were out grazing in the pasture while a couple were ready to work. My husband and I don't really approve of the carriage rides in NY (near where we are from) because we worry about the horses. These horses obviously are well cared for and are friendly. we even got to feed them carrots when we were done!

This is a must do! Rochelle was wonderful and her love and care for her horses was evident. Do not let cold temperatures deter you, she has cozy thick blankets that keep you toasty and cozy even in single digit temperatures! Thank you Rochelle for making our weekend even better! !

A sleigh ride in the snow has been on my bucket list and Gentle Giants fulfilled my wish. The ride was perfect--cold but the nice blanket they provided was wonderful. Great, obliging horse named Clayton and friendly owner and staff made the experience perfect, Couldnt have asked for more. Somewhat expensive but hey, if it is your bucket list, it's priceless.

We went there for information, we went to visitors centre in stowe and it looked too pricy. But when we got there we discovered it was affordable and we went for it! The driver was so nice, taking pictures for us and telling us stories. Very friendly people and the horses are beautiful. We had jack a 16 year old white beauty. I'd go again and tell all of you to go there also!
