This was such a great experience. I surprised my fiancé with this ride as part of a Valentine's Day celebration. It had recently snowed, so the trail on the farm was beautiful and pristine. They provide warm blankets on the sleigh and we brought our own thermoses with coffee. The drivers were extremely knowledgeable, telling us about the farm, the... More

What a wonderful experience. This was a surprise sleigh ride for my daughter's 18th birthday. John and Laurie, the owners, are the nicest people. Our driver (sorry forgot his name) was absolutly wonderful and very informative. When they tell you an hour ride it was an hour ride and not 45 minutes or 40 minutes. We reserved the carriage for...

Our three families with kids now in teens and 20's took a moonlit carriage ride around Lake Hayward and absolutely LOVED it! Horses, carriage and driver were amazing. We were fortunate to ride in the carriage used in Boardwalk Empire! Bring your hot chocolate and your friends. They supply the rest for an authentic New England experience.

Found out about this attraction on the web site 50 things to do in Conn. and was able to get a reservation for February 15th. The day was beautiful and the ride was great. The ride was for an hour and enjoyable. The driver was very informative about the farm and horses.

This was on our bucket list, and we picked the perfect place, Allegra Farm. I called all the places an internet search for "Connecticut sleigh rides" turned up (a small handful). A few didn't call back, some had a steep price jump if you have more than 4 people (we thought there might be five of us, three adults and... More

There were 4 of us that went for a sleigh ride at Allegra farm on a Sunday afternoon. The ride was over an hour long and it was over the fields and through the woods just like the song. The driver was extremely nice telling us about the horses being used and other horses on the farm. The horses were... More

If you want to do something different, and enjoy winter in New England, take a Sleigh ride!! Alegra Farms is close and convenent, with the charm of a real New England Farm, with lots of open fields and wooded trails for a New England Sleigh Ride! When you go tell them "Don B." sent you!
