PONY SPECIAL EVENTS - $30 per rider

We offer seasonal special events that combine pony rides with fun interactive activities. Appropriate for kids aged 2 1/2 to six, these include:

- Eggstravaganza! (Spring; Select Dates)
Our Eggstravagana celebration combines pony rides, bunny ears, take-home tie-dye shirts, and candy. Hop on for an eggcelent time!

- Pony Adventure Time (Summer; late June - August)
An interactive experience with horses! The kids enjoy and "eye spy" style scavenger hunt while on horseback, meet some special ponies, and create a new arts and craft project every week.

- Pumpkin Pony Rides (Fall; October 22 & 30, 2016)
Pony Pumpkin Rides (say that three times fast!) combine pony rides, face painting, and games. Kids are welcome to ride in costume (as long its safe for riding) and many do!

- Reindeer Pony Rides (Winter; Select Dates)
The ponies dress up as reindeer, the staff as elves, and things get seriously jolly in the barn. Pony rides and visits with Santa on his sleigh make this event a family favorite.
