Pony Rides

Pony rides are a great option for families with younger children (ages 2-12) who are looking for a fun activity that gets kids outside and active. All pony rides are taken out on our ‘pony trail’ through a timber, shaded trail. Because they are outside, all pony rides are WEATHER DEPENDENT.

Pony rides times are limited to 2 children/time slot.

“Ride Around the Barn” Pony Ride - $20/child
Great for a fun day trip! 15-minute pony ride on pony trail.

Our calendar is currently up-to-date with pony ride availability. We plan our pony ride days 2-3 weeks in advance. If there is nothing listed below, we do not have any rides available at this time. 


How to Schedule a Pony Ride

If there are no times/dates listed below, that means we are currently not offering pony rides. Our pony rides are hand lead by one of our trained staff, or volunteers, our availability for them can be limited depending on the time of year. All pony rides REQUIRE a reservation which can be made directly online. 


*In the event JPEC must cancel a pony ride due to inclement weather, pony rides can be rescheduled or cancelled with a full refund. If there is indoor arena space available, pony rides can move indoors – but this is not guaranteed.
