We welcome birthday parties/pony parties. weddings and other group events at Happy Hooves. We also plan scouting events to learn about the horses and to earn badges. A private 15 minute hand-led pony ride may also be scheduled.
Looking for a unique birthday party experience for your child or yourself? Well you have come to the right place! Read about our unforgettable pony rides below!
What does a party consist of?
Parties consist of 1 hour of food & presents, provided by you, followed by 1 hour of hand-led pony/horse rides .
We use all sizes of ponies and horses so many sizes of riders can enjoy the experience of riding. All Ponies and horses are handled by an individual specially trained by Liberty Prairie Farm. These handlers are trained to keep our guests safe while riding and interacting with the horses.
What to bring?
Colors, theme, refreshments, games and decorations are the responsibility of the guest hosting the party. We will be glad to help you setup if needed. It would not be a birthday party without a camera so do not forget that!
Please do NOT wear open-toe shoes or sandals of any kind. Horse hooves can damage unprotected feet. We also ask that riders wear pants for better comfort. Helmets will be provided by us for the riders to wear. ALL riders are required to wear a helmet. All riders must sign a liability waiver before riding a horse. You can find this form at the bottom of this page.
Liberty Prairie Farm has 2 wonderful locations on their facility to have your party. LPF can comfortably accommodate up to 50 people. Depending on the weather, you can either have your party outdoors while the kids ride horses in our outdoor 150x150ft shaded arena, or indoors in our 152x64ft arena. We have tables and chairs that will be provided for you, but you are welcome to bring your favorite chair.
The charge for our 2 hour party is a $300 donation to our Equine Rescue Program. A deposit of $100 is required to reserve your party date. Please have this deposit when you drop off your contract. Dates fill up fast so it’s never to early to reserve your date. All proceeds from our parties go to help feed and care for our horses as all of our workers are volunteers.
Your generous donation to our rescue has helped feed 2 horses for 1 month!!
