We have four different options available for parties:
- Venue hire only
- Pony Picnics – If a limited number of children are to be invited to a birthday or if you just want to bring the children for an outing, our pony picnics are ideal. These picnics do not include use of the party venue area but we provide a picnic spot under some trees.
- Basic Pony Rides Party (ages 2 – 5 yrs) – Children take turns being led around the property by grooms on ponies for approximately one to one and a half hours.
- Games Pony Party (ages 5 – 14 yrs) – Party: Children are entertained by playing various games, some / all of which involve ponies for approximately one hour. Games such as: place the ball; biscuit and balloon; bobbing for apples; sack races; etc.
Rates for parties other than picnic pony rides include games/basic rides, use of ponies/horses, use of hard hats, use of clubhouse with stove, fridge, microwave and kettle, catering tables, plates and cups for the kids, braais, toilets and seating for up to 40 people. We also offer all other types of parties and can arrange any function to your needs – please ask us.
Safe and secure parking available.
Liberty Stables & Riding School also offers horse riding lessons for all ages, pony camps, easter egg hunts and fun days. Contact us for dates and more information.
Liberty Stables is not just a stable. It is a place where riders are developed, horses are happy and friends are made. At Liberty stables, the potential in each horse and rider, young and old, is nurtured and developed.
Our experience has taught us that children over five do not enjoy the basic party. They, however, LOVE the games party. We can also do a combination party – please ask for a quote.
Buckets of treats
Buckets of treats for the horses are available at R30 per bucket. One bucket is enough for two kids to share. Please book these beforehand.
As a guideline a typical party will follow the following pattern:
Guests arrive between 14h00 and 14h30. We start playing games at 14h30. The length of time spent on the games, depends entirely on the level of fitness of children but most children are tired after 45 minutes. (In the case of the basic party, children will complete the riding at 15h15) At approximately 15h15, children return to the clubhouse to have the birthday cake, etc. If feed buckets are booked, the kids will be taken to the stables at around 16h00 to feed the horses. If not, children are welcome to play running games in our wide open spaces!
