    A great place for young riders to start out

    11-03-2015 by Kacey Martin

    — 5 star A great place for young riders to start out. I took my girls here when they were 5 and 4 respectively, they had a wonderful time and we visited a few more times before buying our own pony. The staff were wonderfully supportive in helping our family get ready to become pony owners and gave the girls important skills to help care for our pony. They were polite and supportive and did everything they could to accommodate our expectations and wishes. I have recommended this business to a number of people. If we lived closer we would definitely consider their pony parties! The ponies themselves were well behaved and I felt very safe having my children around them, especially because I could tell they were being handled by owners who cared about and understood their animals unlike some led pony operators who are just out to make buck.

    Thanks for the best party ever!!!
