Programs for children from age 3 to 13 as well as Mustang tricks demonstrations operate throughout the tri-state area. We have ponies and mini carts for birthday parties and special events. You can rely on us for providing the adequate number of ponies or horses for your event and make your children happy!
I’m giving Ponyshare and Seaton carriages 5 stars! My daughter’s 9th birthday party was awesome. Everyone enjoyed the Hay ride, the face painting and most of all, the pony rides. My daughter is now asking me to enrol her in a horseback-riding lesson. I’m considering her request because I saw how happy she was during her party. I’m recommending this company to everyone!
What to Expect
We want ALL the children to have fun in a safe and supportive atmosphere. We offer different packages geared to the age and number of children in the party. Not only do we offer pony and mini cart / hay / wagon rides but we talk to the children about the animals and their environment. We show them how to groom, lead and interact with the ponies. We teach them to respect and appreciate them. We like the event to be both fun and educational. And we love to answer their questions!
PonyShare has been the [preferred provider of ponies and equine animals in the tri-state area since 1992. Not only do we offer our critters for birthday parties but also for company picnics and township events. We also use mini-carts, very popular among the younger children as they can be held by a parent or an older sibling.
More recently, our daughter has joined us as a Mustang trainer and loves to have her Mustang ponies and horses perform tricks for young audiences, as a means of showing the breed's versatility and help find them homes.
Additional Booking Notes
For pony and mini cart rides we just need a fairly level area the size of half a basket ball court, or even a driveway will do. If you live in a cul-de-sac we can also use that area, It is always a good idea to have some carrots available as a treat for the ponies at the end of the party and under our supervision.
We like to have a backyard or part of it and areas where we can safely tie some of the ponies. We do not need much space but we need it clear of toys and cumbersome items. While the pony rides are taking place, we need the children not actively engaged in our activities to stay clear of the ponies' area and not throw balls or any objects in their direction. Fo9r the safety of the children, we also need dogs to be contained. We normally bring our own water for the ponies and will clean after them if/whenever needed.
Influences & Inspiration
We have been doing this for over 25 years and during that span of time we have seen the children become less active and more sedentary: They spend most of their time in front of their computers or social media devices. We want to do our small share to balance that tendency by offering them healthy, physical, outdoor activities as an alternative. By integrating some games and little relay races and keeping them actively engaged, we feel that we are contributing to the children' physical and mental well-being.
We bring everything needed.
