​Unicorn Discovery Encounters

Sparkle Plenty, white unicorn for The Peppermint Pony Unicorn Discovery

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 already booked

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.  

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!
