$10/Guest - Pony Rides Party guests will learn a little about horses and horse safety while they help brush and get the ponies ready for a ride.  This fun part of the activity helps nervous riders feel more comfortable, and gives all of the guests a chance to really "love on" our amazing ponies, while also helping them understand why a few basic safety rules are important.  Guests will take turns riding while our staff assists both those waiting and those riding.  While safety is the most important issue, we make sure EVERYONE is having a great time, even while waiting in line, and everyone gets a little bit of a riding lesson during their turns!

$15/Guest - Rides and a Craft Add a horse related craft and give your guests something to take home!  Our most popular craft option, the Horseshoe Hanger, gives each guest the chance to paint and decorate a real horse shoe, and take it home to hang on their wall.  Other options include a CD pony made from recycled Cd's, and peat-pot ponies.

$20/Guest - Rides, Craft, and Games Our most popular party-option, our staff entertains all the guests with some fun, horsey party games.  We have games available for all ages from the little ones up through high-schoolers and are flexible and creative in making sure guests are having fun and everyone is involved.  This game time usually gives parents a chance to get cake and snacks ready in the barn while also providing a fun time to just run and play together.

Families are encouraged to come early and decorate for the party.
Weather is NOT a factor - we can handle almost anything as long as you're comfortable.  Although we do have heaters and fans, remember that you're planning an OUTSIDE party at a barn, which means please advise your guests to dress for the weather, to be comfortable OUTSIDE!

Please email us for more information and to set up a time to come visit.  We look forward to celebrating with you!
