Who doesn’t love ponies?? Well then kick up your heels and try a pony party! It is such a great theme, lots of options for decorations, entertainment and fun! Get your little cowboy or cowgirl ready for a boot scootin good time!
There are several adorable pony/horse invitations on the market to choose from. Some are in the shape of a pony with string for the tail, this is the one I liked the best, but there are several others. As far as decorations, just get some hay bails, bandanas, maybe a couple of wagons and you are set. Simple straw hats make awesome give aways. They have them with colored hat bands that will make your little cowboy or cowgirl feel right at home on the birthday ranch! Another perfect give away that is very cost effective is the stick horses, all kids love to play with these and will be so excited to take them home!
Have some great music on when guests arrive, country and western of course. Be sure to set up the classic birthday party game, pin the tail on the donkey. Bobbing for apples is always fun, the kids will be fighting to be first in line! Don’t forget about horse shoe throwing! Then the best part, PONY RIDES!!!!! You would really be surprised how affordable they are! The kids can take turns riding the ponies, be sure to have someone in charge of taking pictures of the kids and then when the thank you notes get written, you can include their personal pony picture! Saddle up and get ready for a yee hawing perfect pony party!
The hat and the bandana that the kids receive upon arrival are already great goodies they can take home with them. One thing to add would be a wooden stick pony! Then they can go for pony rides whenever they want!
