Frequently Asked Questions

Where are your parties at?

We come to you.  We can give rides in your yard, driveway, sidewalks, or a non busy street.  We cannot walk the ponies on rocks, deep sand or steep slopes.horseback riding4

What age children can ride?

Even 1 year olds can have rides.  We ask that an adult walk alongside the very young children.  Our target age groups are usually 10 years of age and under.  We may restrict some weights on different ponies.

What if it rains?

We will come rain or shine.  However you may have the right to cancel due to rain without penalty if you give us a 2 hour notice.  We will cancel if there is lightning, dangerous winds or downpours.

What does it take to get set-up?

We only need to set out the stools and saddle the ponies.  Our goal is to arrive 10 minutes early to have the ponies saddled and ready to go and ensure that your party starts on time.

Do you have insurance?

Yes, we have a great insurance policy.  We will however send you a waiver for the parents to sign to help protect you and I from liabilities should any injuries occur.  Equine Helmets will be available for use.  There is always the issue of lice.  Parents can choose to have their children wear helmets of their own.  I have not experienced any serious injuries to children in all the years that I have been involved with pony parties.

What about cleanup?

We come with the necessary tools to remove any pony droppings.  However urine may leave a brown spot in your grass.

What about our dog?

Our ponies are ok with passive dogs.  However for the safety of Fido, you may want to restrain him.
