Cowboys & Cowgirls


Little buckaroos from the Appleton area and those visiting the Fox Cities area can enjoy a western style good time with the Cowgirls and Cowboys themed Pony Play Date. The little cowpokes dress up in their favorite western attire or get decked out from our collection and head out to our stables to have a rootin’ tootin’ good time. The little farm hands help with pony chores, learning about pony care as they haul hay, tote water, try their hand at a hay rake, and fix up a stall for the horse. Then they settle in on the hay for a story that is sure to have some cowboy lingo. They can groom the pony and watch as it gets tacked up for their lead-line pony ride. After the ride, cowboys and cowgirls get some grub (grab and go snack and juice boxes). A special (toy) visitor who the children will recognize from a popular movie demonstrates how to throw a lasso, and then the little buckaroos get to try their hand at roping a bull. We have plenty of hats and bandanas, so grandparents and parents get to join in the fun too! This one-hour romping good time is a great way to celebrate a birthday, or just to spend with loved ones creating special memories. If you are searching for a fun family outing, look no further! Themed children’s activities at the Pony Playce are always an excellent choice.
