Pony Parties


**Currently on hiatus from pony parties due to lesson schedule changes - Please check back in future**

Your first pony ride, a memory that lasts a lifetime... The excitement of getting up close to the pony, the smells of the farm, the feel of the pony as you brushed your little hands down their neck, the giddy anticipation of hopping on the pony and riding away. Dreams of being cowboys and cowgirls made real by getting on that pony, no matter that the pony is safely connected to a big person leading the pony, no matter that an instructor is walking near the rider "just in case".  Being on that pony little boys and girls are transported into a world of cowboys and cowgirls.

About Our Pony Parties

Your pony party booked at Cantera Equestrian is an opportunity to get kids of all ages out into the fresh air and have a safe and fun experience with our well seasoned ponies.  We have a facility that allows for pony parties to be conducted comfortably year round.  We offer petting time on the ground in addition to time for each child attending the party to have a ride.  No party would be complete without picture posing time.  As each child completes their ride, there is time to pose for a snapshot with their pony to capture the magical moment.

Lesson Style Parties

Do you have horse crazy children that aren't content to be led around on the ponies?  We have a solution!  Instead of the traditional pony party you can schedule a group lesson party.  For the inexperienced riders we will have extra staff on hand to provide one on one assistance in addition to the trainer providing the direction for the lesson.  If desired you may opt to simply schedule the private group lesson and go home for additional festivities. Or, you may opt to have the lesson and then utilize our facilities for cake and present time as well.  Call us and let us help plan the party that best fits your family.
