Honeysuckle Horse Farm
I provide hand-guided PONY RIDES/ PONY PARTIES for the east Tennessee area. I have a lifetime of experiences with handling horses both by myself and around children. Ponies are healthy, up to date on all vaccines, and extremely gentle. Great for birthday parties, block parties, church functions, fall festivals, Christmas Parties, Easter Egg Hunts, unlimited possibilities!! It is our ultimate goal for you and your children to have a fun and safe time at the party.. A helmet is not required but will be available for use at the discretion of the party host and or parent/guardian of the child.. The cost for a Pony Party is $200 for a 3 hour rental within 50 miles of our farm in Sweetwater, TN. Anything farther than that will be an additional charge of $1.00 per mile. I allow an unlimited amount of rides for the kids during the three hour time period. You can invite as few or as many guests as you would like (length and number of rides will vary depending on the number of children attending the party). There is no minimum age for pony riders, however the kids must be able to hold themselves up (sit up) on the pony. There is another adult that walks along side the smaller children and helps with stability if needed.. I allow any age, regardless of weather they can hold themselves up or not, to sit on the pony for photos.. There will also be time allowed for the kids to brush the pony and feed some treats if the kids would like to do that.. We have two different size ponies, one smaller and one larger, and will bring the one that best suits your child's age group.. The smaller pony best suits children up to 100 pounds. The larger pony can give rides to children up to 200 pounds. Or, if you want, I can bring both ponies for $300. No boring little circles here! We will accommodate you in as much or little space that you have available! If your children are older (6 or older) we can even do a lesson party were I will bring a bridle and obstacles to steer around and give instruction to your group on how to steer and ride by themselves! Just let me know what you are looking for! No reasonable request will be denied! We are flexible and aim to please! The ponies are cleaned, bathed, and tacked for the party and come decorated in a cowboy theme for a boy or a pink cowgirl theme for a girl. If you have a specific way you would like the pony decorated please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.. Price includes pony tacked, cleaned, decorated, and delivered to your party plus portable stairs for easy mounting and dismounting, obstacles for a lesson party, brushes to brush the pony, hand sanitizer, and plenty of treats!! We also provide a full clean up of any "messes" the pony may make in your yard.. There will be PLENTY of photo opportunities for the party host parents and guest parents alike! Also, if I book another party off your party or if you refer someone to me after your party you will receive a FREE horseback riding lesson! Give us a call today to reserve the date for your child's party!!
