We offer lovely Little pony parties for children aged around 4 to 8, we have several miniature Shetland ponies, a little welsh pony and are located on a small farm buried within the beautiful Staffordshire countryside, all you need to do is turn up and leave the rest to us.
Children will be introduced to the ponies and then they can groom and decorate them with lots of lovely bows, flower bobbles and lots of lovely bright colors to put in their tales and mane. After that, they can have a lead rein pony ride on Sky the little welsh pony!
We have a lovely party room next to the stables which has been beautifully decorated and is perfect for when the weather isn’t great. Outside we have picnic benches for when the weather is nice!
A party lunch or tea will be provided including a variety of sandwiches, crisps, cocktail sausages, carrot sticks, and grapes, etc. If all the carrot sticks haven't been eaten then the children can treat the ponies who will love them.
The children can then have a choice of chocolate or vanilla homemade fairy cakes and biscuits. After that, if they have any room left we offer ice lollies and choc ices. We do not provide the birthday cake so please bring your own if you wish.
There will be tea, coffee, and cakes available to the parents and after the kids have eaten they can go and play on the swings, slide and climbing frame.
IMPORTANT If your children have any food allergies or other dietary requirements then please let us know in advance so we can plan accordingly.
We do ask parents to supervise their children whilst they play on the climbing frame and swings as we cannot be held responsible for them falling off.
We ask that not too many extra family and friends attend the party as it can be overwhelming for the animals and also if the weather's inclement it could get overcrowded.
We do ask that children come with wellies and suitable outdoor clothing. We, of course, provide safety helmets for when the children are riding and leading the ponies as well as training them how to interact with the ponies safely so both child and pony can have a fun time.
There are toilet facilities provided and we ensure that the children wash their hands after touching the animals and before they eat.
