“Must do for young kids”
Reviewed September 10, 2012

This is a slightly pricey attraction ($13 for adults, $11 for kids, plus $5 for a cup of food to feed the animals), but it is well worth it and you can frequently find Groupons or other coupons online that make it even MORE worth it. Lots of animals to pet (not just miniature horses). Admission includes several educational activities (learning about the mini horses, brushing, etc.) and a horse show (horses doing tricks they've been trained to do). The folks here really care about the animals and make it a point to take good care of them-- if they didn't, I wouldn't patronize them.

“Little Horses and much more!”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

We actually went twice this summer since my daughter loved it so much. She loves horses but also enjoyed seeing the pigs, peacocks, goats, sheep, you name it! She enjoyed grooming the little horses and was thrilled to win the stick horse race. Our son loved when the animals were shown in barn too. The show was adorable! Really like that they rescue dogs and train them to be a part of the show too. Even if you aren't going to do a pony ride, make sure to walk back there...we didn't realize there's a small cowboy town and lots of animals back that way! Kids loved playing the old piano in the saloon. Also a small store with drinks, snacks. There is a small sit down cafe, inside with A/C, with drinks, etc if you need an inside break.

Our heartfelt thanks for such a kind and detailed review. So many guests that make their first visit here are so pleasantly surprised by what meets them on the "other side of the fence". Although most feel that we are catered to the youngsters we seem to have many "grown-ups" without children that enjoyed their visit because of the simplicity of what our park represents. We may not be fancy but we are fun!! Thanks again for taking the time to review our park and we hope that you and your family will visit again and again!

“Little Horses”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Great place for small kids to see and pet all kinds of farm animals. It's great that they rescue dogs and teach them to perform in the show.

“Poor care for the Horses”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

This place should be shut down and I will do what I can to ensure they do and the animals are sent to a better place. They don't care for the horses. We took our little girl here and didn't stay long as we were horrifed of the conditions of the animals.

We respect everyone's opinion and do our best to rectify situations that we feel we need to improve on but the care of the animals at our park is of utmost importance as each one of them is our livelihood. Caring for the animals is a 365 day a year/24 hour a day routine and we are dedicated in scheduling staff to carry out the day to day feeding and chores. Maintenance veterinary procedures are carried out on site and emergency and other veterinary care is performed by our vet. We are inspected by the USDA and Pennsylvania Game and Wildlife Commission and adhere to their policies and procedures. Each of our animals are provided with indoor accomadations as well as outdoor access to pastures during their "down time". Training of the animals is done with respect and tolerance of each personality and ability. We are very sorry that you did not feel that our park was not worthy of a longer stay and that you felt compelled to write as you did but it does appear to me that the majority of our guests realize the hard work and dedication that each of us devotes to our animals everyday.
