Come join Santa and the ponies of JPEC for a magical holiday tradition! Children between the ages of 3-12 will ride their pony through a winter wonderland before meeting Santa Clause in his sleigh. Kids will have the chance to sit with Saint Nick and ask for what they'd like for the holidays. (professional photos will be taken and available as a digital copy on facebook) Grab some hot-cocoa and holiday cookies while you have fun with the family making holiday crafts. Take the family on a wagon ride to round out the afternoon and make some magical memories.
2019 Activities at Pony Express to Santa
*To sit with Santa Claus children need to have a pony ride ticket. If there is availability in timing, families/other children who do not have a pony ride ticket may get their picture with Santa but this is not guaranteed. If you have questions or concerns, please contact us prior to arriving! Thank you!

To combat the long lines for pony rides that have been historically present at Pony Express to Santa, we have organized our ticket purchases by day AND time blocks for 2019! Please choose your preferred day and hour time block in which you would like to visit Pony Express to Santa. You are more than welcome to stay longer at Pony Express to Santa than your selected hour time slot, however, this time block is reserved for you to get in your child's pony ride to Santa Claus with as minimal of a line as possible. Please, please, please plan to arrive within the first 30 minutes of your selected hour block (ie: 1:00-2:00pm block, please try to arrive between 1:00-1:30pm!) and have your child's pony ride completed by the end of your selected time block. Naturally, there will be flexibility the day of the event but please know that we have developed this hour block system for YOU - the visitors! We are continuously trying to make your Pony Express to Santa visit as streamlined and engaging as possible! Thank you for understanding and we look forward to seeing everyone!
