Hoofbeats is a family operated, event venue, equine education and experience center. We enjoy creating special events and Pony Parties for families and their children as we help them to discover new wonders in the natural world. Our philosophy is simple: provide quality educational programming and make every experience we host, seamless and magical for our client, and memorable for their guests. We take great pride in our animals, our facility, and the work we do.
In addition to party events, our horses partner with us for equine educational experiences and mentoring through the "Pampered Pony Club", as well as fun, summer "Twilight Pony Camp", monthly "Little Rancher" pre-school events and "Mommy and Me" activities.
Our unique approach to horsemanship inspires, educates and empowers children. Our mission is to support young people by offering experiences that facilitate positive youth development while helping them to acquire horsemanship skills. We pledge to provide a safe learning environment so that a young person can thrive physically, mentally and emotionally and work towards being a successful horse handler.
Our horses and ponies, many of whom have been rehabilitated from poor health and trauma using holistic methods, are retired from the demands of formal work and the show ring and live naturally as companions and teachers for all ages.
You will find all of our animals to be healthy, clean, well-groomed and impeccably cared for. They are love-able, social and sweet, each with unique personalities. Bunnies and chickens and Dwarf Nigerian goats, are our family pets and we treat them as such. Our guests always comment on the beauty of our animals and our facility.
Our Party Area
Rain or shine, your event or equine experience can happen without worry about the weather. We have you covered with our beautiful indoor event area, brightly lit by natural daylight and large enough to bring the petting zoo and the pony rides inside! On beautiful sunny days, a very large, fenced grassy area is just outside the door, where children can safely play and you and your guests can relax and enjoy your time with us.
