About All Star Farm & Their Ponies
All Star Farm is a family owned business with mother/daughter team Judy Yocom & Danielle Cunningham. All Star Farm provides cart rides and pony rides with miniature ponies aka miniature horses. The Miniature Ponies/horses are the perfect size for children and are usually always very calm, gentle and sweet natured. All Star Farmís handlers are professionalís that have over 20+ years experience with the handling, training & care of horses & ponies. The horses/ponies brought to all parties & events are very well trained with several years experience as trained pony party ponies, but no matter how well trained a horse is, they are still animals and can be unpredictable. All Star Farm is not responsible for accidents or injuries which may occur from or while a pony is at a party or event. The Ponies of All Star Farm are always presented clean & beautiful. They are all white in color which is the most requested color of pony for almost all parties and events as it is symbolic for the color of the unicorn & Pegasus. All Star Farm does have a black & white pony which is available on a limited basis & a brown pony available at any time if another color pony is requested.
Most of All Star Farm Ponies are potty trained, so potty accidents very rarely occur while at a party or event. However, if a rare occasion were to occur and the pony were to accidentally go potty, All Star Farm handlers will be responsible for cleaning up the mess.
About the Cart Rides & Pony Rides
Cart Rides: All Star Farm uses an easy entry cart which the children can get in and out of by themselves and it can be decorated according to the Holiday or Party theme.
Pony Rides: All Star Farm uses a leather western saddle on the pony and a mounting block is used for the children to easily get on and off the horse. (we have a custom handicap saddle for special needs riders which is available on request). The pony for pony rides will be decorated in pink ribbons for girl parties & blue ribbons for boy parties. If you have specific theme or color you would like the pony to be decorated, please let All Star Farm know what the theme is and they will try to decorate the pony to match the party theme.
If Cart Rides and Pony rides are booked together, then they will be conducted together at the same time during the same hour(s).
