I'm a mom of two children, ages 9 and 11,
and have been horse crazy myself since I was 5. I got my first pony at age 5, then started taking formal lessons at
age 7. From there I began showing Hunter Jumpers competitively. Now that I have kids, it's important to me for
them to be safe, while instilling my love of horses in them. I began paying others for pony parties, then said "hey
I can do that" and threw one for my daughter for her 6th birthday. It was a huge success. Whenever we have
friends over, it turns into a mini pony camp and thus Princess Pony Parties evolved.
have a small horse farm here in Woodinville, where we pursue our equestrian dreams. My family and I love to trail ride
as well as compete in local shows. In addition to our party ponies, we have 3 rescue pony/horses, who are thoroughly
enjoying being part of the gang, a young Thoroughbred who is training to be a jumper and a retired champion barrel racer.
All loved to be petted and loved on. We work very hard to run a muddless, clean, healthy, fun farm. We don't
use pesticides and control flies naturally. You will find we have very few flies on our farm due to our compost management,
which we recycle.
Rescue Success Stories ~ All
the money we make from Princess Pony Parties go to the care and feeding of our horses.
have successfully rescued many horses over the years and found them fabulous homes. Rosey and Blizzy still live together
and are loved on by two pony loving children. Lace, the retired barrel racer found a girl of her own and now competes
on the Oregon Highschool Equestrian team. Tango, the grey Thoroughbred/Quarterhorse also found a girl of his own and
is now part of pony club. Scout, a bay welsh pony who was once physically abused by his owner, now enjoys 20 acres to
roam with his other pony buddy.
If you see a horse in
need, please report any abuse you see to your local animal shelter. Sometimes owners, even though they can't take care
of their horses, won't relinquish them. In most cases I have had to pay the owners in order to remove the horses from
their horrible environment. It's a small price to pay, for the feeling you get in helping them get well again! Their
love and obvious gratitude back is all the reimbursement we need!
