Pony Party - Giddy Up

2 hour party for children, ages 5 and up. $400 for maximum of 10 children.

The first hour is with the horses and ponies. Children can groom the ponies and enjoy one hour of pony rides. Each rider receives one-on-one instruction on the basics of neck reining, how to mount and dismount, and how to stop and start the pony. We set up a pole weaving course for young riders to try out their newly acquired skills. While children are waiting their turn they can groom a real pony, even braid the mane and tail (parent supervision required).

The second hour is yours to fill with your celebration. Outside the riding ring there's a seating area with umbrella tables and chairs for party guests and a fire pit where we keep a bonfire going for everyone's enjoyment. Food, beverages, paper products, and presents are provided by you.

Pony Party - Down on the Farm

2 hour party for children who are not old enough to ride, but all ages are welcome. $125 for maximum of 3 children. $275 for maximum of 7 children.

This party has no riding, but it has plenty of fun. Meet the turkeys and the sheep, then on to the pony decorating pen where the children will meet and decorate Yum Yum the pony. Next we visit the barn to meet and greet more ponies: Dakota, Goldielocks and Cupcake. After feeding all 14 of the bunnies and the chickens (each child will get treat bags filled with bunny food and treats for the chickens) each child is given a container for collecting eggs and may bring them home. We finish the hour visiting our Nubian pygmy goats.

Peace & Happiness Hour

1 hour of stress-free time on the farm. $30 per child. Parents are free. Reservation required.

Come spend an hour of enjoyment and relaxation while you feed the pygmy goats, Latte and Mocha, and their best friend, Coffee the sheep. Vist the turkeys: Marshmallow (he likes to be petted), Christmas and the two pudding sisters, Figgy and Plum. Feeding chickens, egg collecting, petting bunnies and brushing ponies are so much fun. Maybe our silly ducks Hickory, Dickory, and Doc will watch you decorate Yum Yum and Icycle, our Pony Party Unicorns. We will end the hour with a craft activity and something to take home with you to remember your time with your new friends from the farm.

Note: This is an appropriate activity for a family. Large groups should sign up for Down on the Farm.
