We've added a few FAQ to this page. If there is anything else you would like to know, please drop us a line.
Where would I have the party?
We will bring the ponies to you for your pony party. You can have it at your home if your garden is big enough to accomodate a pony or two. If you don't have the room or want to have your party elsewhere then we can come to a suitable venue of your choice. We have a few local venues already listed here -> Pony Friendly Venues
How big does my garden or venue need to be?
Ideally we need to have easy access to your garden or venue, enough room for the ponies & children to safely move around & an area to ride in. If you don't have easy access to your garden then the ponies have been known to nip thorugh the house to get to it. If in doubt, please contact us.
What if I haven't got anywhere suitable to have the party?
What happens if it rains?
The ponies don't mind the rain but we appreciate that it may not be so much fun for everyone else. If the weather is very bad then we are happy to offer another date if postponed by 6pm the day before the party.
Where do you travel to?
We are happy to travel Nationwide throughout the year to children's birthday parties, event's, fetes & for seasonal activities. For long distance travel costs please contact us.
For local birthday parties & events we will travel within a 20 mile radius free of charge (as calculated by google maps). After this 50p per mile will be charged.
Will my kids be safe?
Our ponies are well behaved & are used to the hustle & bustle of daily life but please bear in mind that they are animals & can be distracted. They will be accompanied by experienced handlers who's job it is to ensure everything runs safely & smoothly.
What age group do you cater for?
We offer pony parties & pony rides for children up to approx 12yrs old depending on an upper weight limit.
Are you CRB checked?
Yes, I have an enhanced CRB check done annually. I also have Red Cross First Aid for children.
Are you licenced & insured?
Yes, we hold a Riding Establishment Licence with Newark & Sherwood District Council and have full Public Liability Insurance.
How do I secure my party?
Just decide how many children you have going to your pony party, for how long & how many ponies you want etc. Fill in the booking form which can be found on the 'Party Packages' page & submit. We will contact you as quickly as possible to let you know if your date & time are available. You will then be asked to leave a deposit to secure your date. The balance is then due 1 week before the party.
What do the children need to wear to a pony party?
Some trousers/leggings while riding (under a dress is ok) & some sensible shoes preferably with a small heel. Wellies are fine too.
Do you provide riding hats?
Yes, we provide British Kitemark riding hats that are of the current safety standard.
