We have a Halloween Carnival for the parish children every year and it would not be such a huge success with out Jodi and her ponies! She has such beautiful ponies and does such a wonderful job giving rides to the children. It is a pleasure to have Party Animals come to our Carnival every year. Jodi and her ponies come highly recommended by the equine community and it is obvious why...she knows and loves her ponies as if they were her children! I recommend Party Animals for your next children's party or church event!
Response from Party Animals Pony Rides:
Thank you so much Beatrice. I look forward to Holy Faith's Children's Carnival every year, it's become an annual tradition for me and the ponies. Can't wait to see you again.
We love Party Animals! Not only are the ponies beautiful, well cared for, and suited for their jobs - we love Jodi as well :-). She's bubbly and pretty and fun and my son warmed right up to her. She answered all the questions the kids asked her very patiently. I don't know how she has all that energy but we felt doubly secure seeing how capable she was and how calm her ponies were. Our 'horsey' friends were impressed by how healthy they were and we all learned a lot about proper horse keeping and safety. Who knew those straps and things that hold a pony into a cart were so important to fit right? There was something for everyone, from the zippy cart ride (super exciting!) to the gorgeous ribbons and flowers the kids decorated the ponies with. We got amazing photos and amazing memories too.

We bring at least three ponies to each party or event. We start out with a pony to a cart, in which three children can ride. The cart is great for kids who may be over our saddle pony weight limit, very tiny children who need to ride with an adult or children who may be tentative about riding on the pony's back. It can also accommodate adults! After all have had a ride in the cart we switch to a saddle pony and give the remainder of the rides on the saddle pony. Children have access to the ponies at all times for petting, brushing and decorating with our beautiful, custom made bows and ribbons.
Jodi Orens has owned and operated Party Animals Pony Rides for over 21 years. Jodi has a BS degree in Equestrian Studies and Business Administration. The emphasis of her equestrian education was on training and teaching. Jodi has worked in all aspects of the equine industry including, but not limited to, breeding, training, riding, carriage driving, equine nutrition, farm management as well as teaching children and adults to ride.
Jodi loves nothing more than sharing her love of all animals, especially horses and ponies with children who may never otherwise be in contact with equines. This business was born out of her desire to make a living while having her toddler daughter with her at work. Jodi's daughter, Sarah, is now 23 yrs old and fondly recalls the wonderful memories of going to "work" with mom.
This business is more than just a job, for Jodi, it is her passion. She feels blessed to work at what she truly loves.
Party Animals Pony Rides strives to accommodate our clients. We have found, for the enjoyment of your guests, it's best if we are able to work directly from our trailer. This is where the ponies are comfortable, where my equipment is most easily accessed and where the "action" takes place. This can mean having us park directly in front of your home, pull into your side yard or even into your back yard if your property allows such access. Of course we can make exceptions when necessary, but whenever possible having the party in close proximity to where the trailer is parked makes for the most enjoyable experience.
