Cheshire Pony Parties – where little peoples’ dreams come true
Based in Kelsall, nr Chester, available throughout Cheshire
Make your child’s dream come true with a Cheshire Pony Party.
My tiny fluffy gentle natured ponies are perfect for young children to groom and handle and are quite happy to be pampered with ribbons, clips and stickers.
My idyllic orchard setting has been described as an enchanted dreamy wood amongst a canopy of beautiful big trees – it stops adults in their tracks as soon as they see it. It’s a wonderfully relaxing place – even with a gaggle of very exited children here!
On arrival the birthday girl/boy is presented with their birthday rosette and I introduce the ponies. The children then brush the pony(ies) and decorate with ribbons, clips and stickers. They each have a short ride and enjoy some craft which is appropriate to the ages of the children. Ofcourse the birthday girl/boy has an extra ride at the end as it’s their big day. All children receive a small horse themed gift.
Parties can sometimes be themed e.g. cowboys/cowgirls, unicorn, princesses etc and children are welcome to come dressed up.
There are various options for party tea depending on what you prefer including bring your own. Light refreshments can be provided for adults.
Your child’s safety is paramount so I have a number of both obvious and some less obtrusive safety measures in place to ensure the children are safe but at the same time thoroughly enjoy their experience. I am licensed with Cheshire West and Chester Council and insured, as is required by law.
Testament to the fact children enjoy themselves here is the fact that children regularly ask if they can come back again and I’ve had pre-schoolers dragged kicking and screaming to their car at the end of their visit because they didn’t want to leave!
Being the first person in Cheshire to set up a pony party business, (and one of the first in the country) I’ve learnt a thing or two about engaging children of different ages. I’m now known for being great with children. Having ridden and owned my own horses for over 40 years ( I started very young!) I have plenty of entertaining pony facts and tales to tell visitors – feel free to ask me about horses’ teeth or about the time the ponies fancied a game of golf!(We live opposite a golf course!)
Most of my parties are here in my orchard but I do sometimes visit birthday children’s homes for their party.
I can now also offer the first Hobby Horse parties in the UK – great for larger parties. The children make their own hobby horse then compete in teams.
