Pony Rides



Enhance your next event by having a pony available for rides! Our pony rides have been brought to birthday parties, block parties, and much more. Our professional handlers will bring and lead the pony during the rides. Petting and pictures are permitted if desired. Pony rides are only available outside.


Pony rides are available every day throughout the year. Only one pony is available for rides.

Each pony ride event is for two hours with additional hours available.

For the safety and comfort of our animals, pony rides are available for up to five hours per event time per day. All events must be located within 100 miles of the park address. Overnight stays for multiple day bookings are not available. Handlers will travel from and return to the park each day.


  • Traveling pony rides are covered by the park’s liability insurance.
  • If temperatures are expected to be or exceed 90 degrees Fahrenheit during the event or during our travel time to and from the event, we reserve the right to cancel and issue any refunds as necessary.
  • Payment is due no later than the day of the event. Full refunds are only available if the program is cancelled at least 24 hours prior to the event.
  • You are responsible for clearing the area where the animals will be set up. Any snow and ice must be cleared before we arrive.
  • Handlers will provide full set up and clean up. They will arrive early and stay later than your event time at no extra cost to provide this service.
  • The weight limit for a pony ride is 80 lbs. Adults can walk beside the pony with their smaller children.
  • Approximately 32’ of space for parking for our truck and trailer must be available upon our arrival.
  • These prices and options are only valid for the Moraine location.
  • Any prices quoted may be adjusted in the future. Prices are locked in once the contract is signed and returned.

Are Saying

The Sloth Interaction was incredible. Got it for my son for his Birthday and had plenty of one one interaction with Padawan. Staff was super friendly and informative and answered all of our questions.

Interesting and not what I expected. I thought it would be a tiny zoo with nothing I haven’t seen in the local Pittsburgh zoo. We got in at half off as we stayed in the Log Cabin Suits and I was pleasantly surprised. A lot of animals that you could feed by hand and the animals where excited to see you. My kids would definitely enjoy it.

Great way to see animals in a way you rarely get to experience in a regular zoo. More to see than in the Pittsburgh Zoo.
