Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a lot of space for a party?

No! We can set up in a 12x12 area on either grass or cement.  For larger events, we will come to your location prior to your event to perform a site survey and assess the best location for set up.

What happens if the weather isn't good on that day?

We try our best to come even in inclement weather so as not to disappoint our guests.  Many clients put up tarps or tents to protect that area from the weather.  We bring a 10x10 tent for the petting zoo animals.  We can also set up in an indoor area such as a garage.  We will do our best to adjust the start time of your event around weather conditions if possible.  In the event that the weather is dangerous, we can reschedule for another mutually agreeable date.

Are you insured?

Yes! We are fully insured and follow strict safety procedures.  For corporate events and schools, we can provide a Certificate of Insurance as well as additional insured certificates. 

Do you work with special needs children and/or adults?

Absolutely! We are certified teachers and have experience working with individuals with special needs.  We are happy to customize an event to suit the needs of your guests.  We understand the requirement for patience and dedication to all of our attendees.

Will you customize an event for us?

Just ask!  We will try our best to accommodate your wishes for an event relative to themes, location, hours, and audience.  It is our commitment to make your event special and memorable!

What makes you different from other pony/petting zoo events?

We pride ourselves on being a step above other pony/petting zoo events and make every effort to prove it.  Our format is fun, engaging, and interative, and run by certified teachers who have experience in creating excitement! We are also animal lovers with a history in animal rescue, so our animals are given the best of care and lots of love.  We also have a background in event management, so we know what it takes to make an event successful and unforgettable!  We approach your event as if it was our own personal event and take pride in the smiling faces of our guests! Whether you're interested in entertainment or the healing power of animals, we like to say that, "We bring happiness!"
