Unicorn Discovery Encounters
The Peppermint Pony
The Peppermint Pony offers Unicorn Discovery Encounters to allow a broader spectrum of children to enjoy our unicorns in a private setting at a reasonable price.
The shy child, the older child, the special needs child all benefit from the low-key, mellow atmosphere here. It also makes a terrific Grandchild treat, whether directly before a birthday party party on a weekend morning (as available), or as part of a special day out. Perfect for school holidays!
For the best price, this is a weekday offering. Some weekend mornings and evenings may be booked around what we have on our calendar.
While we allow approximately 45 minutes for your booking, we do not have one set time-table for this service in order to allow each special child his or her preference of activity.
This service is meant for 1-2 children only.
You will park at the head of the driveway and walk down to meet us. We may coordinate this by text message if the element of surprise is involved!
The child meets the Unicorn - on a trail, or in the drive as you walk to meet us. Then we meet the mini horse. At this point, don't be surprised if your child temporarily ditches the Unicorn for the mini horse! No worries, there is plenty of time to ride.
Rides can be in our open area, or on the trail as we develop it. Some children want to stay in sight of their caregivers. We are flexible!
If the child wants to get their face painted or do a craft, we break for that and then there is more opportunity to ride and take photos.
We have free-ranging chickens, lovely dogs, and some frog ponds for poking.
Feel free to bring a special 'treat' for the ponies (piece of birthday cake, cookies etc). We will supply carrots for feeding at the end of your visit, for fabulous photo opportunities!
Please refrain from entering the stable area or crossing any other barriers put in place for your safety, as certain areas will be under construction and are off-limits.
