Combo Packages You don’t have to choose between the pony rides and petting zoo. Many customers do both! Hand led ponies and live carousels can be combined with any traditional petting zoo. These packages offer more bang for your buck.
Traditional Petting Zoos Petting zoos come in all sizes. Choose from a 12 , 20, 25 or 25 animal petting zoo, depending on your crowd size. All zoos include chickens, ducks, rabbits, sheep, goats, an alpaca and a miniature horse or miniature donkey. Specialty add on animals like miniature cows and pigs are available. Children get to feed the animals. Hand sanitizer provided.
Pony Rides Include a couple of hand led ponies for smaller events, or a live pony carousel for events with a big crowd. A good rule of thumb is that each pony can give approximately 20 rides per hour. Ponies come in all sizes so that any age group can ride.
Exotic Indoor Petting Zoo Includes chickens, ducks, rabbits, guinea pigs, pygmy hedgehogs, a tortoise and a lizard. A wallaby can be added. Upgrade to a large indoor zoo for bigger crowds. Available November through March.
Is it age appropriate?
Our services are great for ANY age. Everyone from toddlers to teenagers (and grownups) love our interactive animals. Ponies come in a variety of sizes so that any age group can ride, and parents can walk along with their very small children during the ride.
How much space do I need?
That really depends on the services you choose. Small petting zoos require at least 15 x15 ft of fairly level grass or cement. Specialty animals will require additional space. Hand led ponies can be led around fields or parking lots. Carousels require about 30×30 ft of level grass or cement.
What if it rains?
We have a very flexible cancellation policy. You can cancel or postpone your event at absolutely no penalty up until 24 hours prior to your start time. If you choose to proceed with your event, some services can be set up in garages or under awnings. We also offer tent rentals.
Will you arrive early for setup?
We will arrive approximately 30-60 minutes prior to your start time to setup. We’ll need a place to park and access to the setup area. We will have everything we need with us to setup and can adjust to most areas and surfaces.
