Sleigh rides through the woods are a Lake Tahoe tradition. So are carriage rides.
Fortunately, the Borges family is flexible with what it offers guests.
For the past 47 years the Borges have offered sleigh rides in the field in Stateline next to MontBleu casino. But snow can be a problem so Plan B had to be instituted.
Dwight Borges told Lake Tahoe News the holiday season was very good for business because the carriages were out. They are stationed in front of Lake Tahoe Resort Hotel in South Lake Tahoe.
He said people love to see the horses.
It’s hard to pass by the carriages and not see someone petting a horse and engaging the driver in a conversation.
