Having a pony at their birthday is every child’s secret dream. And, you don’t need a ranch to make it happen; our ponies can work in almost any size of yard or area — even as small as a two car garage. Alternatively, a cul de sac, dead end street, field, park, school yard or boulevard are just some examples of where we can set up. Party rates depend on the number of hours and the number of ponies required. Our most common request is two ponies for an hour at $240, in addition to travel costs.
Most parties are well served by one hour with the ponies. This timeframe fits nicely into a majority of party schedules, even the short, two-hour parties. Of course, additional time is available for larger, extended family occasions, as well as multi- hour events.
When you book our ponies for parties in the GTA, Charlie’s Pride Ponies will come right to your door with the pony bus, bringing the ponies, equipment and staff for each pony. Our aim is to give each child at least two pony rides and we always have some brushes on board for those who want to get right in and handle their pony. Before we leave, we make sure to pick up any pony "offerings" and take them away with us — nothing remains but the joy of the day.
The ponies always relish the opportunities when kids want to feed them. While grass is good, one-inch carrot chunks and apple quarters are heaven! Treats are reserved for after the rides, when their work is done.
