Apple Holler's Horse Drawn Sleigh Rides in Chicago and Milwaukee area

Enjoy the magic of winter with an old-fashion sleigh ride at Apple Holler. Traveling through the crisp snow and hearing the clump of the horses’ hooves will transport you back to a simpler time. Our Haflinger horses, purchased from our Amish friends, will take you and your family or friends on a special orchard tour to see beautiful hardwoods, many of which are over 100 years old. A true winter wonderland! At the end of your adventure, we’ll treat you to a cup of hot chocolate or tasty warm apple cider.

What our Guests are Saying:

A truly unique experience! We wanted to plan a Christmas outing with our entire family – about 25 of us – and we could not have chosen a better place than Apple Holler. The entire staff was so accommodating to our large group during both breakfast and our sleigh ride. At the end of our sleigh ride, we had a cozy bonfire waiting for us along with hot apple cider and s’mores. What a perfect day we had and we thank you! We are definitely planning on returning to Apple Holler! –Maureen and Tom Rowan, Palatine, IL


Hand Feeding a Horse in Winter

Dear Apple Holler,

I just wanted to let you know how wonderful our sleigh ride on December 23 was. The weather could not have been better. Your employees were personable, informative, and helped make our sleigh ride a memorable experience. And, the mother-daughter team of horses worked very had to pull us around the orchard.

We loved having a bonfire for the group that had to wait for the second sleigh ride. The children roasted marshmallows and drank the hot chocolate that was provided. Because of the nice weather, we didn’t have to stay inside the barn too much. But, it was nice knowing we have someplace to warm up if needed.

Thank you for providing the perfect start to our holiday celebration. A good time was had by all — so good that we’ve talked about making it a new family tradition. I tell everyone they need to add a sleigh ride to their winter agenda. It is a memory my extended family will cherish. –Jodi Kuhl, Kenosha

“It does not have to be the holiday season to take a sleigh ride and we have found the perfect location. Visit Apple Holler in Sturtevant, WI for an old fashion fun ride through their breathtaking landscapes. Bundle up and sit close as you enjoy the gifts of nature whizzing by. So relaxing. Hot cider or hot chocolate are included.” –Lisa Nowicki Bear, Family Time Magazine
