Pony Parties

Make memories that will last a lifetime.

Come and join us for a two hour visit at High Hopes where we will provide up to six horses and trained staff to lead a mounted 30-60 minute riding session for up to 12 individuals with time for grooming and barn activities. We ask that you provide parental supervision, horse friendly decorations, party supplies and refreshments. Please keep in mind that our fire hazard precautions prohibit the use of lit candles indoors and that our horses have a rider weight limit of 180 lbs.

High Hopes Will Provide:

  • PATH Intl. certified therapeutic riding instructor to conduct mounted riding activities
  • Half hour for party and cake time, (indoor consumption of food may be limited due to COVID-19 guidelines)
  • Trained and knowledgeable volunteers to support participants during mounted and unmounted activities

Reserving Our Facility:

  • A $50 deposit is required to hold the space
  • Registration and Release form must be completed 2 weeks prior
  • $25 late fee
  • Charges may apply if space is not returned to its original condition

Please take note that decorations are limited near our horses during mounted activities if set up outside. Decorations that should not be set up outside include balloons, bubbles, streamers, music and piñatas. These decorations may be set up inside in our kitchen area.
