Our Pony Parties
Spruce Meadow Farm has several ponies and horse s that will travel to your location for parties and events
A pony party is a great addition to almost any event and Spruce Meadow Farm has several types of pony parties to offer!
Ponies come in all different sizes and we will ask the age of the party attendees so that we can make sure you have the right size pony for your event.
When we bring a pony or ponies to you, they arrive in a trailer and are saddled and ready to go! A “walker” comes along with them and we make sure to bring a pitchfork and bucket…just in case!
Usually a pony party will last for an hour, although sometimes they can go 1-1/2 or 2 hours. We are happy to accommodate any time frame you may have in mind.
The riders are welcome to get on and off as many times as they like during the party.
Pony Ride Party $15 per rider/$75 minimum
Riding Lesson Parties $35 per rider
1 pony for 1 hour $250 $95 for each additional 1/2 hour
2 Ponies for 1 hour $375 $165 for each additional 1/2 hour
For distances over 25 miles there is a gas surcharge based on mileage. Please call for a quote.
We also offer pony parties at our farm. A nice feature of having a pony party here at the farm is that you can eliminate clean-up at home!
You can come here for an hour of pony rides and then go out for pizza. Or you can bring your own snacks and/or cake and use our picnic tables and play area! Either way there’s no home clean up!
We offer two types of parties; pony ride parties and riding lesson parties.
Pony Ride Parties
With a pony ride party you get the use of a pony or horse, with a helper to lead the pony and help the kids on and off for an hour.
Riding Lesson Parties
At a riding lesson party the participants will learn how to groom and saddle up their horse or pony and then have a group riding lesson. The group sizes vary depending on the number of attendees.
During the lesson “students” will learn how to mount and then how to direct the horse on where to go. We set up a small obstacle course to help them learn and practice their skills.
Lessons can also be tailored for more advanced students.
Participants should dress for the occasion in long pants and a shoe or boot with a small heel. Any type of heel will do. A flat shoe or sneaker should not be worn for safety reasons.
They will also be required to wear an ASTM approved equestrian helmet, which we provide here at the farm. If you are coming for a riding lesson party you can click here to download a release form.
