A Ministry Sleigh[1] is a horse-drawn vehicle to travel on surfaces of snow or ice, that was used by the Ministry of Magic for the transportation of Ministry officials. It was dark in colour, and had the Ministry logo embossed on the doors.

On 18 December of 1993, Cornelius Fudge used one of these sleighs to get to the Three Broomsticks Inn, in Hogsmeade. Rubeus Hagrid met him outside the pub, and offered to hold the door of the sleigh open for him, but only achieved in tearing the small door from its hinges.[2]
