Nestled in the heart of our enchanting pony ride experience is a commitment to providing the utmost care and love for our four-legged friends. Join us on a journey through a typical day in the life of the ponies that bring joy to children and families alike. From sunrise to sunset, our dedicated team ensures these gentle creatures receive the care they deserve, making each day a tale of equine happiness.

6:00 AM – Rise and Shine, Pony Style

As the first rays of sunlight paint the sky, our day begins with the cheerful whinnies of our ponies, eager for breakfast. The morning routine kicks off with a nutritious meal carefully prepared to meet their dietary needs. Each pony receives a personalized diet, and our attentive caretakers ensure they enjoy a healthy start to the day.

7:00 AM – Grooming and TLC

Pony pampering is an essential part of our routine. Grooming sessions not only keep our ponies looking their best but also play a crucial role in their overall health. Our dedicated staff carefully brushes their coats, checks for any signs of discomfort, and ensures that their manes and tails are tangle-free. It’s not just about physical care; it’s about creating a bond that goes beyond the bridle.

9:00 AM – Hoof Health Matters

The health of a pony’s hooves is paramount, and our daily routine includes meticulous hoof care. Our skilled farrier visits regularly to trim hooves and ensure that each pony’s feet are in optimal condition. Proper hoof care is not only essential for their comfort but also contributes to the overall well-being and longevity of these beloved animals.

12:00 PM – Midday Delight

While the sun reaches its zenith, our ponies enjoy a well-deserved break. The pasture beckons, providing them with an opportunity to graze, socialize, and stretch their legs. A bit of freedom in the open air keeps our ponies happy, healthy, and ready for the next round of pony rides.

3:00 PM – Playtime and Enrichment

Stimulating a pony’s mind is just as important as caring for their physical needs. Our staff engages in playtime activities and enrichment exercises, ensuring our ponies remain mentally sharp and entertained. From obstacle courses to gentle rides, these activities contribute to the ponies’ happiness and create positive associations with their work.

6:00 PM – Dinner and Sunset Serenity

As the day winds down, our ponies are treated to a nourishing dinner. A calm and serene atmosphere envelops the stables as the sun sets, creating a peaceful setting for our nightly routine. Each pony is checked for any signs of fatigue or discomfort, and any necessary medical attention is promptly provided.

8:00 PM – Bedtime Rituals

A good night’s rest is crucial for our ponies, ensuring they are energized and ready for another day of spreading joy. Stalls are bedded with fresh straw, and the ponies are tucked in for the night. A final check ensures that all is well before the caretakers bid their gentle companions goodnight.

We love our ponies!

Behind the scenes of our pony ride experience is a daily symphony of care, love, and dedication to the well-being of our ponies. Each day, from the crack of dawn to the hush of the evening, our team ensures that these gentle souls not only fulfill their role as companions but thrive in an environment that cherishes their happiness and health. Our commitment to the welfare of our ponies is at the heart of the magical experiences they bring to families and children every day.
