Time and Date Course Description

Details For All Backcountry Parties:

Ages: Our parties are recommended for children ages 3-10. 

Capacity: The capacity for Pony Parties is 20 children. Parents are welcome to stay and are not included in the headcount.


Activities: The first 60 minutes of your pony party will be led by our wranglers, and include unlimited pony rides on one horse or pony, as well as barnyard games. The last 60 minutes of the party are the responsibility of the host family. This is a great opportunity to eat cake or other food/drinks and open presents.

Decorations: We provide and set up basic decorations and themed tablecloths. You are welcome to bring additional decorations to set up, but please keep in mind the wind can be a factor in setting up delicate decorations. We do NOT allow balloons, piñatas, or glitter due to their potential for litter and impact on wildlife.

Food and Drink: Outside food and drink are welcome (with the exception of alcohol). Feel free to bring your own s’mores materials to use at the campfire. We do not have any refrigeration services available and recommend using coolers for items that need to remain cold. We do NOT provide any tableware or utensils.

Set-up and Clean-up: Our staff will set up the tablecloths and basic decorations. Host families are welcome to arrive 15 minutes before the party start time to set up their own food or additional decorations. Our staff will take care of basic clean-up and removal of the trash.​​​​​​​

What to Wear: All guests MUST wear closed-toe shoes. Our birthday parties run rain or shine, so be sure guests dress appropriately for the weather. We will be active and outdoors so we recommend wearing comfortable clothes that can get a little dirty.

Weather: Our birthday parties run rain, snow, or shine with the exception of excessive rain, heavy snow, lightning, or temperatures below 25 degrees. Refunds will not be issued for inclement weather. In the event of heavy rain, heavy snow, or temperatures below 25 degrees, we will contact you to reschedule your party. If a thunderstorm delays the planned activities for more than 1 hour, we will work with you to reschedule your party. If 45 or fewer minutes of the party remain when a thunderstorm moves in, your party is considered completed. We reserve the right to make decisions regarding the weather and safety of participants. 

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations made more than 7 days in advance of the party will be refunded minus a $50 cancellation fee. Refunds will not be given for cancellations made fewer than 7 days before the scheduled party. We reserve the right to modify or terminate any party to accommodate unforeseen circumstances. In said event, every attempt will be made to notify the planner as soon as possible. If a mutually agreeable alternative date/time cannot be agreed upon by the planner and the Backcountry staff, a full refund will be offered.
