A pony party for a childs birthday last 1 1/2 hours depending on the number of kids, etc.. . Typically it would include the format below. Depending on the ages of the children the format may or may not be altered. For children 3 or under, they are more interested in petting, feeding, and riding the ponies. Some children are more interested in riding and feeding so depending on the nature of your party, we may go straight to riding after safety instructions. We can customized a party to fit your child and your party. During the planning process we will suggest which may be best for your party. We also will match bows and color schemes that ponies my wear, to the color scheme of your party. In addition, we provide all treats that the children will feed to the ponies.
