We receive phone calls regularly from people wanting to know if they can come over for a pony ride or just visit the ponies. I share that if they are looking for the pony rides frequently found at carnivals, festivals and pumpkin patches, we do not offer those types of rides or visits. We do offer amazing experiences that provide time here at the ranch in a personalized “one-on-one” or “small group format”. All of these experiences support children and adults to get up close and personal to the myriad of ponies, mules and horses at Oregon Dream Ponies. All visits are by appointment only and led by myself and my husband affectionately known as Cowgirl Kim and Cowboy Bob.
Below you will find a list of the variety of great ways you can visit Oregon Dream Ponies.
Kids and ponies – is there a more joyful combination? Oregon Dream Ponies provides a venue for the smallest horse lovers to enjoy ponies & learn something too 🙂 Starting for children as young as 2 years old. The Pony Ride Experience has attracted children from all over the world as a lifetime of memories are created during this dream pony ride. The Pony Ride Experience has also been a popular birthday gift (experience) for a pony crazy child.
Children discover how to safely pet, brush and saddle the pony, with plenty of time to ride, and ample guidance to keep kids safe. This private hour closes with the child thanking their pony by feeding their pony a treat.
Fun & learning for the entire family unfolds during your visit. Children have so much fun they will want to come back again. Numerous families come back regularly for more as each time a child visits we provide new and developmental experiences while riding and interacting with the pony.
Special Note: Children who are shy or have special needs have found great success here at the ranch with The Pony Ride Experience and more. With a background in professional teaching and ponies, Cowgirl Kim is able to customize each experience to meet a child right where they are at. Parents have shared time and time again that they can not believe how much their child was able to accomplish in this hour.
The Pony Ride Experiences are held at the gorgeous Taylor Hillside Farm & Ranch surrounded by Newberg’s developing wine country. Pony Ride Experiences are offered in a variety of formats starting at $225.
Children ages 2 and older spend a magical time riding a Unicorn all their own. Children create a Unicorn of their dreams decorating with ribbons and choosing their Unicorn Horn color (rainbow, pink, blue, gold sparkles, silver sparkles and more).

Oregon Dream Ponies fulfills a lifelong dream for Bob & Kim Taylor. Growing up in an urban lifestyle, Kim rode every pony ride in Oregon dreaming all the while of having a horse for her very own. As a child, Kim tried to convince her mom that there was room for a pony to live in the garage.
Bob's dream of owning property and running a family business became a reality in June of 2010, when they purchased 5 beautiful acres in Newberg, Oregon. The Taylors now enjoy the peace and hardwork of an agrarian lifestyle with 12 ponies & horses, a bunch of chickens, 2 ducks, 4 dogs, 1 cat and 2,000 Christmas Trees at the Taylor Hillside Farm and Ranch.
In today’s training session, I put the halter on Sunny. Sunny did great. Kim had done some sessions before so Sunny knew what was going on. We also gave Sunny a treat when she looked away from me. We did it through a fence because she started biting.
Sunny is doing so well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got to train Sunny by myself with only a few instructions and comments from Kim. I did targeting with her using the targeting ball we’ve used before. I also practiced leading her without a lead rope. It went very well. By the end of the session, she favored me over her food. For example, when I put food on the ground, she followed me instead of eating the food. ~ written by Natalie (10 years old almost 11) ... See MoreSee Less
