Oh it was cold, the wind was raw. We found a great spot to park, I could lean up against the car for shelter from the wind and take some photos. Chance enjoyed the whole parade from the backseat.
The Sheriff’s Mounted Posse
The first sleigh was on wheels and full of people.
An old box sleigh. This sleigh would have hauled lots of freight.
You can see that everyone was bundled up and you can see the horses breath in the photos. This is a small Bob-Runner Sleigh.
This little horse was not real happy. His driver kept encouraging him. A custom made sleigh of some sort.
If this gentleman would have had a full beard…he could have been Santa in a one horse open sleigh. This is a Speeding Sleigh or better known as a Cutter.
Double runner sleigh or Bob-Runner Sleigh.
Small horses pulling a Cutter Sleigh.
An even smaller team..and best dressed! They had Rock n Roll music too!
A very pretty sleigh driver. I think her sleigh usually hauls milk cans.
I thought this was pretty cute!
That was it, the entire parade took less than 10 minutes to go by us. These people and animals were all troopers, traveling from all over to be in the sleigh parade in Hubbard Minnesota for the Annual Sleigh Festival.
It was a fun very cold February afternoon. I am not a sleigh expert, so if I have miss named a sleigh I apologize!
