You're planning your child's birthday party and have the party favors, cake and gifts. Don't forget about the pony. Renting a pony for a child's birthday party is a popular idea, and your child and his friends will never forget riding a pony. The next time you're planning a party, make a few phone calls and giddy up!
Locate a stable near you and inquire as to whether it offers ponies for children's parties. Find out if you need to have the party there, or if the stable can deliver the pony to your house. Some may not offer the latter option.
Ask questions, such as if the stable has ever experienced any accidents and if it's fully insured. Make sure renting a pony for your child's party is a safe and enjoyable experience.
Request for someone trained with the pony to be present at all times. Whether you are holding the party at the stable or at your house, make sure a qualified attendant is available and remains with the pony during the entire event.
Ensure that none of the children attending the party are afraid of ponies, or any other animals. Hold the pony riding in separate area of the yard from the party. Or simply have that child or children come to the party after the pony riding is over.
Know any age limits the stable might have regarding younger children and pony riding. If you plan to invite children under the age of seven, make sure they can ride before renting a pony for your child's party.
Tips & Warnings
- Ask someone you know who is in the horse industry to recommend barns to try. Just like any business there are good and bad. This is a live animal you want a company/stable who is trustworthy and has good training.
- remember to check into if having a pony inside the city limits is allowed for these such events. Otherwise look for stables to take your party too.
- although pony rides are fun you need to insure that the ponies are in good health and properly trained. Do not take business to barns who's ponies are thin, extremely fat, or look uncared for.
