Telluride Sleighs and Wagons
We are excited to continue our partnership with Horse Play LLC to provide horse-drawn sleigh and wagon rides. Located on the historic Aldasoro Sheep Ranch on Last Dollar Road, guests enjoy stunning views, exceptional food in our canvas sheep camp tents after a horse-drawn sleigh or wagon ride. The tent is heated by a wood burning stove and guest dine together family style at our custom build farm table. You'll hear stories about the Aldasoro familys five generations of history in the Telluride area and eat food influenced from the Basque country where the family is from. Price includes drinks, but feel free to bring your own libations!
Please dress warm! There are extended periods of time spend outside in the open air. Kids are encouraged to wear snow gear, and adults are encouraged to layer. Please wear sturdy, warm shoes as you will be walking in snow.

A very unusual and enjoyable experience. Dinner was outstanding. Highly recommend
This an amazing memory-experience. We took our family of 11 people- 6 adults and 5 grandkids ages 7 yrs.-5 months. Beautiful sleigh ride pulled by two huge, gentle horses. Food was fantastic. All the staff was SO kind. If you are in Telluride, don’t miss this experience. It’s expensive but worth eating in for a few nights to save the money for it!
Ashley the owner was a phenomenal host. She drives the group up to her family’s land above Telluride Airport. From there we took an amazing sleigh ride with 2 beautiful draft horses - Bambi and Pearl. The sky is amazing as we were away from light pollution. We saw the Milky Way, constellations and Mars.
Once we arrived there was a cozy tent for us to eat in. The food was fabulous. I ate so much of the curried butternut squash bisque I could barely eat my entree. Wine was plentiful and a wonderful time was had by all in my group.
We will come back and do this again!
Amazing experience for our family! We would do it again in a heartbeat!
What an amazing evening spent with Ashley, the hostess extraordinaire; and chef Graham. Everything about the evening was magical. We all felt like we were family! Kudos to the Altesoro's
My children and all of my grandchildren had an amazing experience with their grandmother! From 2yrs-11 had so much fun The food was great; almost too much to eat. The staff were so friendly and the environment was magical. Thank you Ashley and Justin!
My children, ages 11-17, and I had the most fabulous experience. The highlight to our vacation in Telluride. We highly recommend! All staff was punctual and so incredibly friendly.
Absolutely wonderful authentic horse-drawn sleigh ride that includes scenic mountain views high above Telluride. Ashley is a delightful hostess and creative entrepreneur who represents the fifth generation family of Aldasoro's who own this ranch in this venture. The dining experience was incredible from the first cocktail, through appetizers, soup, entree, and dessert. Totally loved by every member of our party! Truly magnificent. Perfect for special occasions!
Overall the experience was wonderful. Food and service was great. My only criticism was that the dinner portion felt rushed. I would have enjoyed a more leisurely experience. If the evening was an hour longer that would accommodate all the courses as well as wonderful conversation.
I was so impressed by everything overall! What a unique dinner in a town filled with unique and wonderful restaurants, this dining experience is not to be missed! I brought a special bottle of wine along, and was glad that I did, but the included options were good as well. Both the lamb shank and the buffalo were fantastic! Make sure to dress for the weather, they also provide blankets for the ride.
Bambi and pearl we’re fabulous Justin was a great driver Ashley was a terrific hostess food was delicious
Ashley, Justin, Graham and the whole gang made sure we had a memorable evening! The sleigh ride and dinner were awesome! Looking forward to joining them again the next time we’re in Telluride! It was an amazing evening we won’t soon forget!!!
The staff was exceptional all the way through from the start to the finish. We star gazed with excitement on the horse drawn carriage. The interior was so charming with a roaring wood burning stove. We started with wine and a cheese plate. Choice of wine was very good, but the cheese needed to be a better quality and selection. The squash soup had a wonderful taste, but needed to be thinner- too chunky. Main course was a pan seared white fish on a bed of succotash which was very tasty. Then came a pulled pork popover with savory fruit. Tasty but the popover presentation was too large and doughy. Since it was a birthday, we were surprised with a chocolate cake topped with a dark chocolate glaze and caramelized maple bacon. Interesting taste. An after dinner drink scotch/ liquor with the desert would of been perfect to complete the meal. Maybe they'll add it or maybe you can bring our own. Reservations were made on opentable which needs some tweaking. We never knew how much it cost until 2 weeks after we had signed up, we got an email confirmation. Overall it was a wonderful venue. Food quality and presentation needs some improvement for the $160 per person fee. At least I think that's what it cost. I haven't checked my cc statement yet.
We had a wonderful experience with Telluride Sleighs and Wagons. Gorgeous views and a gourmet dinner! One of my favorite parts of our trip to Telluride!
We were looking for a fun activity and dining experience and we got both! It was the most amazing experience ever! You eat dinner with a group and meet lots of interesting people! We met some life long friends! The staff is so fun and the food is out of this world! Ask about the gorgeous dining table!
The best part was the atmosphere and sunset setting! Stroll along on a horse and buggy ride as you pass Elk along the way. Sip hot cocoa on the way home and listen to the stories of the locals. You will feel like you went away in time. These are the friendliest people on earth!
We will be back!!
Ladies trip gals!
Took our family to dinner three kids (3, 6 and 8) and had a wonderful time. Very intimate and cozy atmosphere. The staff is friendly and helpful. Views are amazing and the food was delicious.
Great group! Such a unique dining experience. Had a blast
Fabulous experience, beautiful dinner with delicious food. Fun wagon ride - and the full moon and stars were spectacular. My only negative comment was the set dinner price. There was generous wine and alcoholic drink options and we didn't drink, yet paid the same price.
I would still recommend to any Telluride visitor
Loved loved loved this special adventure ! Incredible, unique experience! Definitely a memorable experience!
I have enjoyed each and every sleigh ride that I have attended. I meet new people, enjoy old friends and cherish my time with family members. The food is wonderful and the staff is so nice and helpful.
This was one for the books! What a special night! There were seven in our group, including three teenagers, and we will remember our night at Telluride Sleighs forever! It’s an expensive evening but priceless memories. Staff was great and food was amazing! We also learned a lot about the rich history in Telluride. And saw a pack of elk on the ride back to town!
One of the highlights of our family week in telluride. This was our second time dining here. We will be back for many more times.
Highly recommend to anyone looking for a nice romantic night. You won’t regret it!
Telluride Sleighs and Wagons was a wonderful experience. Situated high up in the mountains, this experience begins to feel rustic but with all the charm one would hope from enjoying a delicious meal. The hosts were wonderful and considerate of everyone's needs. After dinner before our ride back to town, the stars were endless! So great!
Would have been better if it had been daylight to enjoy the scenery. We booked a 4:30 but not enough people so we went on the 6:30. Our tour was after dark and also would suggest to the owner to provide a flash light for getting from the van to the sleigh. Difficult seeing in the dark with ice and snow covered ground. Food was average not superb. Ambiance, lighting, warmth very nice. Food service excellent. Never know until you try. I would definitely recommend the 4:30 ride especially Winter Months.
This Sleigh Ride was magical! The Belgium Horses with jingle bells, were guided by Noah, our Sleigh driver, were pulling the sleigh through the snow, with a million stars in the majestic night sky - oh what a treasured cherish memory was created that night for our group of 7. Blankets were provided but be sure to dress very warmly as it was very chilly. Arriving at the dinner site, we were treated to a welcoming outside fire in a huge kettle-like fire pit. The tent was glowing from the beautiful lights and wood burning/heat producing stove. The table was set in a winter-like theme - all very beautiful. The wine and food were delicious and Ashley who is fifth generation Telluride, delighted us with stories of her great grandparents which came from Spain and settled in Telluride. Very interesting and entertaining! Highly recommend for special occasions and groups. They take up to 14 guests but book early. We booked weeks in advance. P.S. There is one outdoor heated portable potty - but no running water. Wanted to include more pictures but looks like the pics won't load.
We booked this restaurant because it was a unique experience to try while on vacation. It began and ended with a horse-drawn sleigh ride. We loved the atmosphere of the tented dining room and the friendliness of the other guests and all of the hosts. Cocktail offerings were generous. We were offered one of three entrees and chose the steak. I noted on the reservation that we wanted the meat cooked to medium, but they came out rare and medium rare. When asked, the chef did take my boyfriend's back and cooked it longer. We enjoyed hearing about the history of the ranch and how Telluride Sleighs and Wagons came to be. We knew going in that the cost per person was going to be very expensive but were surprised that an additional 20% tip was expected. Because of the cost, we would hesitate to recommend to others.
Very unique experience! A must, for a trip to Telluride. The views from the sleigh ride are absolutely breathtaking! The food was exceptional, and the service exceeded all of our expectations! Very cool dinner setting. We cannot wait to come back next year!
My husband and I were in Telluride to celebrate the New Year and happened upon Telluride Sleighs and Wagons - we are so glad we did! What a wonderful experience! Ashley and her team served a tasty dinner in a wonderful ambiance. A very special evening!
Unfortunately, Telluride doesn't have much snow this year, so the sleigh option was not available. The horse-drawn wagon was still a lot of fun. The 4:30 option was great because we got to see the alpenglow of the mountains on the way to the tent site and the stars on the way back to the van. The tent was warm and much more festive and comfortable than I anticipated. The service and food were great. It was a magical experience! The horses were well-cared for too!
Amazing experience! We had three less than enthused young adults with us that actually smiled! They thanked us over and over again for a great, memorable experience. The staff was wonderful. No better way to spend Christmas night. THANK YOU!
Fabulous food! The chef was great at adapting the menu for The Celiac in our family. Fantastic Gluten Free Options. Terrific wines, friendly service. Beautiful space. Everyone should go!!
This family mountain ranch experience continues to deliver! With the addition of horses, our family groups (2 of them) had a gorgeous ride up to the luxury tent camp where a fire and delicious food and libations all await. The food is even better with a new chef and Ashley and her crew are helpful and warm and fun throughout the evening. A terrific opportunity to see a special place while enjoying just enough mountain rustic beauty and ambiance, yet staying cosy in the dining tent with a roaring wood stove. Great special occasion for families, food lovers, and mountain lovers.
Absolutely enchanting night. Horse ride fantastic, ambiance super cozy and food delicious
Loved this dinner! Ashley and her team as so amazing. Friendly and full of local history and knowledge. The food is as good as any of the high end Telluride dining in town. Thank you!!
Our family LOVED everything about our experience! All the staff were friendly and very accommodating to the young ones (ages 3, 6 and 10). The ambiance was perfection. Ours was a family outing, and we will definitely book it again next time we visit Telluride. Food was outstanding! Our ride back was under a clear sky full of stars, and it was a perfect ending to a perfect outing.
Our group enjoyed our experience with S&W so very much. It was a wonderful adventure in the mountains that we will all continue to savor. We appreciated the staff as much as the food experience. It is something that I will definitely organize with a group of friends again.
Strongly recommend. One-of-a-kind dining in a tent in the mountains. Family run operation and they take great pride in the food and experience. Nothing but praise for the entire operation - especially the food and atmosphere.
