This ride was a gift from one of the churches I serve. I had used the song "Over the River and Through the Woods" in a sermon at Thanksgiving. I had mentioned I had NEVER been on a one horse open sleigh ride. The congregation gave me the opportunity: over the river and through the woods with sleigh bells jingling and my daughter and grandchildren with me. What a wonderful afternoon! The young man who was our driver was so gracious and gave us many interesting little facts about the horse, the trappings, the blanket and the area! Just a delightful way to cross this off my bucket list.
Quiet & peaceful. Only jungle bells could be heard. Enjoyed the ride!
The staff was more than friendly before, during and after the ride. I've already recommended this to friends.
Very fun and enjoyable something different to do would come back and do it again
We made the reservation at the last minute when is was clear the weather conditions would be perfect. There was an opening and we were so glad! The driver was very friendly. The horse, Pete, wore sleigh bells which made just a lovely sound on the ride. They had warm blankets for us, and we enjoyed. hot toddies which we brought with us. It was twilight and Ellison Park was beautiful and peaceful with some very happy scenes of people celebrating at the Pavilion Shelter and families skating on the ice rink. We enjoyed some time around the fire pit before and after the ride. We highly recommend it and will definitely do it again. We also learned that Ellison Park is beautiful and has a lot to offer, so this is great PR for the park too! We will be back to both Heberle and the Park.
Wonderful time. Had back-to-back sleigh rides. Pete (the horse) and Will were terrific. Have another sleigh ride scheduled for this next weekend. Hopefully we will have snow.
It was very enjoyable, relaxing and picturesque.
They even gave me and my fiancé blankets which were well needed during the 20F degree weather. We were very satisfied with everything. I highly recommend for everyone to try the sleigh ride at least once or more in their lifetime!
We couldn't do the sleigh ride because there wasn't enough snow and it was too wet, so Heberle offered us a carriage ride that was wonderful. Great driver and "co-pilot", beautiful carriage, wonderful warm blankets and beautiful horses. It was a special treat! Waiting for snow for the sleigh ride next time. Highly recommend.
This ride was very peaceful & relaxing, a great time to chat with hubby and take time for us. Would love to come back and do a sleigh ride!!!
Very professional and well prepared.
Wonderful experience! Bill was fantastic, highly recommend !!
Driver was fun and answered all of our questions. Beautiful ride and pulled by two beautiful horses!
Everything about our ride was wonderful. There was little snow on the ground so we had a carriage ride pulled by two beautiful horses instead. Our driver was on time, personable and friendly. Snow starting falling as we rode through the park. It was a perfect Christmas Eve afternoon thanks to Heberle Stables.
Amazing experience! Very friendly staff. Will be back for other events.
Awesome friendly driver. Beautiful scenery.
We were not able to do the sleigh ride, because of the muddy conditions, so we took the carriage. I actually had two gift certificates. One dating back to 2013 and a current one and you were so nice to let us still use the old one. We will now come back and go on a sleigh ride. Will was our driver and was so nice, informative and welcoming. We enjoyed every minute.
The sleigh ride was wonderful! My grandkids really enjoyed it. Our driver was polite, personable, and very accommodating. This is now our second sleigh ride, and we will definitely be back next year. Heberle Stables is great!
Very friendly and enjoyed the hot cocoa!
The sleigh ride was peaceful and relaxing, the driver was friendly, and the over-all experience was wonderful! We would recommend this to anyone! Thanks!
I was extremely satisfied, the staff was very accommodating and knowledgeable!
Friendly and courteous people working there, we had a blast. Can't wait to do it again!
The sleigh driver was very nice and informative, The horses were beautiful as was the scenery.
The ride was fun and the seats and blankets made us very comfortable. The staff was pleasant and showed us all around before we left. The hot chocolate when we returned was a nice treat. I would certainly recommend Heberle Stables.
It was everything my husband hoped it would be. Will did a wonderful job and we will definitely be back.
My wife and I were very pleased with our Sleigh Ride, everyone was awesome!!!!
We had a wonderful time on our sleigh ride. Our driver, Will, was friendly and personable, and our horse, Jade, was well-mannered and led us on a lovely ride through the park. It was a chilly night, but with the heavy blankets that were provided, we were warm and cozy. The bells on the horse were beautiful and the gas lanterns on the sleigh made for a feeling of going back in time. I highly recommend it!
Its was my wife's 30th birthday and when we showed up everyone was so nice while wishing her a happy birthday! It was a very cold evening and the fire was roaring and they had hot water boiling for hot coco or tea. This was the first time either one of us had ever done something like a sleigh ride before and it was incredible. There is not a negative thing that I could say about our experience. Thank you so much for making my wife's day so very special. I would recommend heberle stables to everyone that I know! Thanks again. The hoyts!
I set a sleigh ride up for my parents, and they were beyond pleased, they enjoyed it so much and thought everyone was so sweet. Thankyou for treating them well!
The sleigh ride was excellent!! The staff was friendly and on time for our ride. The blankets provided kept us warm and toasty on a single didits temperature. There was a fire pit and hot beverages for before and after. The 30 minute ride was perfect and the scenery in Ellison Park was beautiful and peaceful. I would definitely do it again and recommend it for others.
Will was very personable and the ride was great
Family thoroughly enjoyed our sleigh ride as it was not rushed and the setting was beautiful with the new snowfall. Our host was very friendly and was more than happy to answer any questions we had about the horse, the stable or any topic. We would recommend this to any of our friends and family
My family from Florida and Georgia were visiting during the Christmas holidays. I wanted to have a unique and memorable experience. Will was our driver and Peter was our horse. They gave us just what I had imagined and more on a moonlit, cold, and snowey night. Highly recommend. Our experience could not have been better. Thank you Will, Peter, and Heberle Stables!!!
Driver was very pleasant even though it was frigid out. Scenery was beautiful, especially going over the bridges!
Heather was so accommodating booking our rides. Everyone else involved with our rides (two sleighs) was friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the warm blankets on the ride and hot chocolate and fire afterward, especially because it was a very cold day. Thanks for a fun time!
Beautiful sleigh ride and good people
This is the third year in a row that we have enjoyed a holiday sleigh ride with our grandchildren at Heberle's. Both this year and last year Will took us out with his horse Jade. We love the ambience of the Heberle's; their regard for the their horses; the friendliness, care and professionalism of the staff, and we always enjoy the hot chocolate by the fire. It has become part of our holiday tradition.
We loved this sleigh ride. Enjoyed a company of nice people at Heberly Stables and our driver. The scenery was very beautiful. The ride along Irondequoit Creek was amazing. The fresh snow gave our journey gave a true Christmas feel.
