~ Birthday Parties ~

Ages 5 to 12


Celebrate a birthday with a horse-themed party at the Nellie Gail Equestrian Center. Parties are customized by the Hayden Riding School and start with "pony" rides using our lesson horses and ponies. Instructors lead the horses at the walk and trot with each guest having approximately 20 minutes of riding time.
