PONY PARTY BROUGHT TO YOU
Enquire for price
If you would like us to bring the ponies to party with you, you will need a reasonable size garden or similar quiet area for the rides to take place also room to park and turn a large van or 4 x4 and trailer so the ponies may be unloaded safely. Sometimes a local village hall or community centre may have some outside space and be willing to allow a pony party if your garden is unsuitable. Generally we start by introducing the ponies to the children and allow them time to do some grooming. The children can then take turns to ride the ponies around the garden. We provide all the necessary equipment to include safety hats and brushes.
AWAY PARTY STANDARD ( CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE TO A MAXIMUM GROUP SIZE OF 6 )
