Saw a couple of tired looking poinies outside and inside was just a gift shop selling the same old stuff every resort gift shop sells. Would have like to have seen the museum, but it looked like just a bunch of pictures on the wall and charged an admission fee that seemed high.

We came by with our 1 year old son on a Friday morning late in September, so there wasn't anything going on that day which was a little bit disappointing. But the woman in the gift shop was very friendly. We visited some of the ponies. The larger Palomino allowed my son to pat him on the back, he had a huge smile on his face! I have a great deal of horse experience and was delighted to see that the ponies were well-groomed and cared for (something I check anytime I visit a place like this). They were hanging out in their little paddocks eagerly awaiting fresh hay from a worker. The gift shop had a lot of really great items, especially for children (gifts too old for our young son) but would love to come back again when he is older!

Nice free stop to see some of the ponies up close. Since you don't usually get very close on the island, this is nice. Nice gift shop as well.

We stopped in with my brother and wife (all adults over 50) to see an evening show. We loved it! Their is such pride in the ponies and delight in them, that you will find yourself clapping as if you were a teenage girl moon-sick over ponies.

It was nice to be able to go somewhere and see the ponies, but this is largely a store. They have a daily pony show at 8 p.m., but we didn't attend and we didn't hear anything about it.
