NORTH YARMOUTH — Skyline Farm will hold its 14th annual “Sleigh Day” on Sunday, Feb. 10, along with “Amazing Sleighs,” its new museum exhibit.

Sleigh Day will run from noon to 3 p.m. at the 95 The Lane farm. Admission is $8, or $30 a family, and includes a sleigh ride from J.L. Gray & Son of Monmouth. Skyline Farm members, sleigh drivers, and children younger than 6 get in for free.

Amazing Sleighs features what Skyline says is the world’s largest collection of New England horse-drawn sleighs. More than 32 styles, spanning three centuries, will be on display.

The public can pet ponies from noon to 1 p.m., and at 1 p.m. horses and drivers will show off their expertise in the outdoor arena and, conditions permitting, sleigh cross-country. A guided tour of Skyline’s trails will be held at 2 p.m.; participants are asked to bring their own cross-country skis or snowshoes.

Hot refreshments will be sold inside the visitor center starting at noon.

The museum exhibit is open from 1-4 p.m. Sundays from Feb. 10 through March 31, or by appointment.
