Costs for typical pony parties start from $250 and are based on $50 per child and costs may also depend on a couple of things;

  • How many children will be at your party? We can offer a discounted rate for more than 6
  • How long do you want to have the ponies? The pony parties generally last for 1 1/2 hours with some grooming, horse play time and riding time and then washing and putting away the ponies.
