I just wanted to take a minute to talk about what a wonderful job Julie and Dennis did for my daughter’s 5 birthday party. They are absolutely fantastic. They are wonderful with kids, they love what they do and it comes across. They love their animals and this also is evident. I want you to know my party could have been a complete disaster.
A huge storm rolled in exactly 15 minutes before my guests were to arrive. Julie and Dennis halted their set up and came in to see how they could help and what we wanted to do. Julie explained that we were the last party and she would be willing to work with us to try to put the party on to the very best of their ability. I just couldn’t believe the determination that they had to get my kid her party. I feel very strongly most people would have just said: “Sorry, can’t control the weather” and packed up and left, but not Julie and Dennis. They set up in the rain quickly and easily, as if they do this all the time. It seemed that they had it timed somehow down to the very last raindrop. They got set up in a matter of minutes.
My stress melted away and I got to hold the animals with my 5-year-old and also my 2-year-old. Julie brought out the star of the show. A rainbow unicorn festooned with ribbons in her (his) hair and covered head to toe in magical glitter. Her little face lit up in sheer joy. Dennis helped gather the kids inside the yard and we rode the princess into her party atop the mythical beast. The kids hopped up and down in excitement as she took her ride around the yard and couldn’t wait for their turn. In just under a half an hour, our party went from wild kids running through the house while the storm raged to a magical, amazing event that no one will ever forget.
I cannot express how much this meant to my little girl, to me and my family. Julie and Dennis are truly kind and wonderful people. When planning a party like this it is very important to be flexible, and have a back-up plan. If your back up plan doesn’t seem to work, just try to go with the flow, and you will be in good hands with Julie and Dennis. They will think of good ideas and suggestions. Listen to them. Let them do their job, which they do very well and everything will turn out just fine. Try to enjoy the animals, yourself. The animals are obviously beyond well-cared for (pampered even) and used to being around kids, the animals loved the attention and gave us a show by showing off and being so friendly with the kids. They all were just beautiful and so good natured. All in all, this event was just so awesome.
Practically every parent there said this was by far the best birthday party they had ever been to. Coupled with jokes on how all of their kids were going to want unicorns now. Most importantly I think I had the best time myself. I just let go and didn’t worry about the ‘order’ of things which is not my typical nature. Julie and Dennis did more than take care of the party, they really took care of me. As a busy working mom that is a luxury I am not accustomed to. It was truly appreciated. Julie, Dennis you are amazing. We hope you enjoy a long and prosperous future of spreading joy to kids and families. We wish you the best and truly cannot say ‘thank you’ enough. Just know we are your biggest fans and loudest cheer leaders.
This is the 3rd party that I have had chamberlain pony rides and I have always been pleased, the children love the animals and pony rides something they don't get to experience often. Their little faces light up with joy and excitement when they see them. I will always recommend Chamberlain Pony Rides to whoever asks me. And I will also have them for my next (2) 5th birthday parties. Cheryl

We celebrated our twin girls' birthdays last weekend here at our house and I cannot say enough about how this company conducts business. From my very first phone call to the moment they packed up to head out, it was a pure pleasure dealing with them. Sally was great over the phone and Sara D was our event host along with her crew. The animals were such a hit. I had just a s much fun as the kids and we didn't want them to go!
Response from Chamberlin Pony Rides & Mobile Petting Zoo:
Thank you so much Kimberly for taking the time to leave your great review! Sara had a wonderful time with your girls. We can't wait to come back and make another birthday memorable.
Chamberlin Animal Rides came to our house for my son's 1st birthday & daughter's 4th birthday. We had about 12 small kids, and 10 older kids. They brought a miniature pony, pony, and horse so that everyone at the party could participate!! (Yes - even the adults!! By the way, the kids really enjoyed watching their parents getting involved and having fun!!) The petting farm was such a hit! Even my 1 year old was giggling as he was petting the bunnies!!People continue to tell me that it was the best party they've been to, and their kids had so much fun . . . and isn't that what it's all about? There was so much for the kids to do - they never got bored!! Face painting & balloon animals were a hit - as was the roller coaster they brought.I can definitely tell you that it was worth the money! It was a party that everyone will remember for years to come!!!!great with kids and perfect animals "
I just had to write and tell you what a wonderful birthday party we had yesterday for our son's 5th Birthday thanks to Chamberlin Pony Rides! Carol and her crew were absolutely wonderful!! Everyone enjoyed themselves kids and adults alike, we even had some adult riders on the horse. Several people from the neighborhood stopped by to pet the animals, we caused quite a stir on our little city street! So much fun!
I just had to let you know that Judy and her team ROCKS!!!! They were AWESOME!!! As you know I started planning my granddaughter 3rd birthday party back in January. I wanted it to be very special because it was her first time coming to Michigan and my second time seeing her. And I must say I was extremely pleased with the service I got from Judy and her team. They were very friendly and professional and everyone (kids and adults) enjoyed them. We had so much fun. Seeing the joy in my granddaughter and her moms face was well worth it. I will be recommending Chamberlin Pony Rides to everyone I know. THANK YOU very much Judy for making Aaliyah 3rd Birthday WONDERFUL..... Teeny
I really appreciate your company's services. Carol Taranto and her staff were AWESOME!!! I am so glad that I found this company, and decided to go with it. All the animals were clean, decorated exactly how I asked, and super nice to the kids. The staff was extremely courteous and nice to all of my party guest. I especially loved the way the staff interacted with the kids, they really do care! The party was truly a dream come true for my daughter and I. I highly recommend this company to everyone. You and your staff are by far THE BEST!!! It was a blessing to have found you for my daughters 5th birthday party. As Taelynn says, it was "THE BEST BIRTHDAY PARTY EVER!!!!", and I totally agree with her. Thanks A Million, Tasha and Taelynn
daughters third birthday was July 28th! Julie and Dennis were so kind and very professional. Not only were they great with the animals, they were also amazing with all the children at the party (about 15 under the age of 6!). The set up for the mini petting zoo was so professional. Cute little chairs for the kids to sit in, a towel for each of them to protect them from scratches from the animals as well as hand sanitizer to use afterward. Julie did AMAZING face paintings. I expected some cheesy rainbows and smiley faces, but obviously she is more talented then that! We had about 50 people at our party in total and each and every person couldn't say enough times how nice it was. I gave quite a few people your contact information because they were so impressed. Thank you SO MUCH for making my daughters big day more special then I could have imagined :) Thanks, Angie
I hired this company for my 5 year old little girls birthday party. We had a unicorn party and they actually brought a "unicorn". I had heard from my neighbors that they were the best company in Michigan and was I ever impressed! They were very professional and the animals were spotless. I will certainly be asking them to come back for my daughters 6th party.
