Q: Where you can make the Pony Rides and/or Petting Zoo?

A: We are able to perform pony rides and set up the zoo just about anywhere as long as the surface is level, non-slippery and not comprised of loose gravel or stones. For pony rides we can utilize driveways, sidewalks, quiet streets, etc. For the zoo we prefer to set up on grass but can set up on pavement if needed.


Q: We have a dog, will he bother the pony or zoo animals?

A: Please keep all dogs inside or put away for the duration of the event. If there is a loose dog, the pony will be stopped until the dog is put away. Excited dogs charging the pony, nipping the pony's heels, etc. ARE a SERIOUS safety hazard. This is for the safety of the children, the pony and the dog.


Q: Our yard is scheduled to be fertilized the day before our Petting Zoo Party, is this a problem?

A: YES!!!!!! Ponies and/or Petting Zoo animals cannot work on any area that has been chemically treated (fertilizer or insecticide) within the past 7 days due to the danger of poisoning.


Q: What about fire ants?

A: Please insure the set up area for the pony and or zoo is free of ant mounds, bee hives, wasp nests, etc. We will NOT set up in these dangerous areas.
Please also insure the set up area is free of dangerous holes, dog or animal feces, glass, trash, etc...if we arrive and we find we have to "Clean UP" we will deduct that time from your party time. If we feel the area is unsafe for our animals or humans we will try to find an alternate location. If no suitable location is available full payment will still be due.


Q: What is the weight limit for the ponies.?

A: We do have limits of 110 lbs for our medium ponies,and up 70 lbs for our smaller ponies.

Over 60 Children...Contact us!
Additional price per Pony:

It is always better to add an additional pony or add a petting zoo to insure everyone gets to ride as much as they want to without lengthly waiting times.
Please also keep in mind that children bring siblings to parties, and parents just love to be inside the zoo! Remember to add them to the total "head" count for your party. It is never fun for us to tell guests they have to wait until someone comes out of the zoo for them to go inside.
The hour long party goes by very fast, and in order for everyone to ride the pony and or pet the animals you need to have the right size zoo or the right amount of ponies to insure everyone gets the same opportunities.


Q: What happens if the pony goes to the bathroom during the party?

A: We clean up after the ponies and or petting zoo animals during the party and after.
