We meet people in their 70s and 80s who still have pictures of themselves as children on ponies. It’s the all-American kid thing! Whether your kid is a cowboy, a cowgirl, a princess, or just a kid, make sure you have a pony picture before he or she gets too big.
And the best place to get a pony picture is at a pony party!
Our pony, Gator, loves to party. He has been in the pony party business even longer than we have (and we’ve been doing parties and events full-time since 2004!).
He’s been to more birthday parties and preschools and daycare centers than he can count. I think.
Gator is great with children, and they love him. He can carry kids up to 85-90 lbs, and is very gentle and sweet.
Our pony wranglers, either Cowgirl Phyllis or Cowgirl Amanda (sometimes yours truly, Tony the Balloon Guy, playing cowboy-for-a-day), plus one helper, are also great with kids, showing them how to get on and off the pony, helping them pet him and, if you feel like sharing, how to feed him grapes, strawberries, little carrots, apple slices, etc.
He might even have a refreshing gulp of Gatorade!
Or maybe just a cup of water.
We also offer face painting, glitter tattoos, balloon art, magic shows and other activities. We have discounted package pricing when you book more than one activity at the same time. The birthday party page of our website has more information.
And please contact us with any questions you may have!
Have a fun day!
