Easter Celebration

This year our church decided to do something different for Easter and had a western style Easter event for the community. Of course the horses were the highlight of our event, even the adults got to ride the horses. The kids also loved the face painting. A big thank you to Pretty Pony Parties for making our event a success. Thank you for being on time, flexible, and patient. We look forward to working with them in the future.

Pretty Pony Parties is Amazing!

Yesterday we had Pretty Pony Parties come to our house for our daughter Mia's third birthday party. It was absolutely amazing. Not only did Mia and the other kids have a blast, but all the adults did too. Our 73 year old grandmother even got up on the horse. We haven't seen her have such a huge smile in so long. Not only is Pretty Pony Parties for kids and adults but for the grandparents as well. Thank you so much for coming. You all were amazing. We will definitely be recommending you to friends (:

You can expect us to give our all to making it the best it can be for your child and their guests. Safety for the kids is our First priority. We clean up after the animals.

Pony and Horses are ridden in many Parades and on lots of trail rides to be sure they won't get spooked at anything that may happen. Each horse has a person leading it and another person walking beside the child. We NEVER strap a child to the saddle. If the child isn't old enough to sit there then a parent can ride with them or our walker will hold onto them.

Petting Zoo animals are not put in a fenced area where there are several kids and lots of animals. We want your child and our animals to be 100% safe. The goats and the mini horse are on lead ropes with a handler, kids can pet them, feed them and lead them around. The duck is in a small duck pond, the kids can feed her and pet her. The rabbit is held by a handler and the kids can pet her and hold her. The pig is on a lead rope and the kids can pet her and feed her. The python is held by a handler, he can be touched if they want to and they are allowed to hold him for pictures. There will be at least 3 handlers just for the petting zoo. Anti-bacterial hand wash is supplied.

Face Painting is professional face paint. It is hypo-allergenic, non-toxic and washes off with soap and water. Glitter used is cosmetic grade and safe for use around the eyes. All of our face paint is FDA approved. We use Mehron and Snazaroo Brands.

Additional Booking Notes

When we have 2, 3 or even 4 parties booked in one day I try to leave plenty of room to get from one party to the next without being late. Please understand though, if your party is scheduled from 1 pm to 2 pm and I still have a couple of kids in line for face painting, I will stay until they are done. Just because it's 2 pm I'm not going to say okay, bye, sorry if you didn't get to ride or get your face painted. YOU would want me to do the same thing for the kids at your party. If I am late, I still stay at your party for the time I was supposed to. Taking care of the kids is what's important and I'll call and let you know if I will be late.

Our horses and ponies are safe, your child will never be strapped to the saddle. We have someone that leads the pony/horse and someone to walk beside it for the safety of your child.

Set List

Please check the area where the animals will be. Make sure there is no broken glass, nails or anything that can hurt their feet.
We need a grass area for walking the horses (no gravel, pavement or brick).

Dogs - if you have dogs we prefer that they are leashed, caged or inside so they don't upset the rabbit and the duck. if your dog aggravates the goats, they will head-but them. if the dog nips at the horses feet we are not responsible if the dog is kicked, the horse is only protecting itself.

Influences & Inspiration

I have had horses since I was a child. We have 9 horses that will always be with us and we have rescue horses that we teach to love and trust humans again. Our littlest horse is only 21" tall and our biggest horse is 16.3 hands and the little one will stand up to him when he wants his way about something.

Sharing the horses with kids at parties allows me to show them how very special a horse is. At every party we do, when we leave we know that there is at least one child, that for the rest of their life they will have a special love for horses. Once a horse has gotten into your heart it is a forever thing.
