Where are we going today?
There is something really magical about a child developing a confidence and connection with an animal, so why not take them to enjoy an experience doing just that on your next family day out!
La Petite Cheval Farm is located in the West Palm Beach area, and is the perfect place for kids and adults to enjoy pony rides and horse riding lessons. Even if you have little ones in the family, there will be something for them!
La Petite Cheval Farm is a beautiful and quiet family farm, located on 5 grassy acres. They specialize in beginner and timid riders, so they understand about any kids who may be getting on a pony for the first time, or a little nervous about it. They do, however, have horses for those experienced riders too, so it really can be a complete family experience.
They have two riding arenas, and a number of horses so they can be sure to pair you up with one that will suit your experience and height. New riders will feel right at home, as they will be taught how to be comfortable around the animals, and how to groom and care for them. Don't worry, you'll also be told how to stay safe in the saddle!
La Petite Cheval Farms offer 1/2 hour lessons for those over 5 years, as well as 60 minute private lessons. For those younger riders, the pony rides are perfect for them. They also have short 15 minute lessons for kids aged 3 to 6 years, to ease them into the activity.
So why not enjoy a beautiful family day out with some beautiful horses, it's an experience kids won't be forgetting in a hurry!
How much does it cost?
- Adults$30 for 30 minute lesson (Over 6 years to adult)
- Children$15 for 15 min private lesson (aged 3-6) /Pony rides $10
When can we go?
Until 6pm by appointment only
Horse farm tours are available weekends! They have experience with 4H, Pony clubs and Girl Scout troops. Weekday tours during Non-school days such as Summer or vacation days are available too so give them a call to arrange!.
They don't have any food available on site, so it's best to bring a backpack with some packed lunch.
Take bottled water with you!.
Any Top Tips?
No sandals! Pony riders can wear shorts but not dresses. Those taking lessons must wear long pants or jeans, and hard soled closed toe shoes. Also bring a helmet..
Need a little extra help?
Emotional disabilities such as ADHD or mild autism are welcome, but they don't offer riding to those severly physically disabled..
They don't have any baby facilities on site.
They also have a monthly lease program, as well as dry stall to full board available. .

I have 5 year old b/g twins. Kim is great with any type of rider. My daughter loves animals so she was first to hop on the pony. My son, on the other hand, is scared of everything and Kim made the experience truly enjoyable for him. Thanks!!!!
