Some kids who love animals will totally love an idea of organizing a horse birthday party, where they’ll get a chance to interact with horses, pet them and ride them. However, you should be really careful if you decide to surprise the kids with an unexpected animal guest and especially if you plan a horse riding birthday party, as kids might get scared of an idea of climbing on top of a horse, not even saying about riding it. And that might ruin the entire birthday.
So, you have to be sure that at least your kid and a couple of his/her friends are going to enjoy such celebration. Moreover, you may want to call the parents of children you’re planning to invite to see if any of them have allergies and ask them if they’d allow their kids to participate in the birthday party horse rides with proper adult assistance, of course.
Then, you may choose to carry out a party either at the riding or boarding facility, or at the farm which has these animals or look for people or facilities that provide an opportunity to rent horses for birthday parties. In the latter case, you’ll have to make sure that you have enough space to let the kids ride the animal freely and that you have enough water and food for the animal to munch on. Also, preparing a basket of treats (like apples, oats, sugar bites or something like that) to let the kids feed the animal might sound like a good idea. But you need to consult with the horsey’s trainer or owner to see which food he allows his animals to eat. And, if you plan on renting a pony or a horsey, you’ll have to rent the riding safety gear and clothes too.
Then, you’ll have to think about decorating the area with the cardboard horsey figures, hay heaps, riding obstacles, etc. You may totally turn this celebration into a cowboy or a cowgirl party depending on your child’s gender by adding some western-style decor elements.
