Pony Rides and Farm Animal Experience

Our goal for the Farm Animal Program here at Refreshing Mountain is to step away from the traditional “petting zoo” idea and to instead, introduce these friendly animals in a hands-on, interactive opportunity for everyone. Educating kids and adults alike about general animal handling and proper interaction is what we love to do!

These programs are designed to give children an opportunity to interact with farm animals. Participants will:

  • Learn general safety guidelines for interacting with large animals
  • Have a chance to pet, groom, and feed the animals
  • Ride a pony or horse (depends on age and size of rider)*
  • This experience is designed for groups of 1-8 individuals. For larger groups, see Group Sales below.

*Max weight 200 pounds.
