Pony Parties

Pont Parties are being scheduled until July 31, 2024.

Pony parties are perfect for the horse lover in your family! Pony parties offer two full hours of magical memories and fun including pony rides, pony “prettying” playtime, and an area for post pony partying for four to 12 children. You provide the food, beverages, and paper goods. We provide fun with our ponies!

Parties are available year-round on Saturday and Sunday from 12:00-2:00pm or 2:30-4:30pm. Pony rides will take place in the indoor arena during inclement weather. Pony Parties are designed for children ages 1-10 who are under 4’6″ tall and less than 75 pounds. Adult supervision is required.
