There’s nothing like gliding across the snow with the sun in your face feeling the pull of the Clydesdales! Nolan and Shirley Huffman and their teams offer horse drawn sleigh and wagon rides to anyone and everyone in Lac La Biche and area. The teams love what they do! For the past seven years the sleigh and wagon rides have been delighting riders from public events to private parties. The bright red wagon is hard to miss! Perhaps you’ve seen it at the Lac La Biche Festival Of Speed ice races, Alberta Parks sleigh rides, Pow Wow parades, weddings, birthdays, and for those who special request .. funeral processions.
The feathered Clydesdales are arguably the best for pulling, but they weren’t Nolan’s first choice. Originally he wanted Belgian horses, but during a search for a Belgian to breed, he came across three Clydes at an auction and the rest is history!
Along with offering sleigh and wagon rides, Nolan and Shirley also teach people to break and take care of horses. They believe working with horses teaches young people good life skills. Nolan says “If I can keep one kid from hitting the streets, I’ve done my job.”
