Visit Oregon Dream Ponies
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 a whole array of amazing experiences that provide time here at the ranch in a personalized “one-on-one” or “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.
Pony Ride Experience
A Dream Pony Ride
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 for a pony crazy child.
Children will discover how to safely pet, help brush and saddle the pony, with plenty of time to ride, and plenty of guidance to keep kids safe. This private hour closes with the child getting to thank their pony by giving them a treat.
Fun & learning for the entire family with prices starting at $95. 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.

Riders groom, saddle and ride their horse stepping into the marvelous world of horses. Safety is kept at the forefront throughout the time, supporting each rider at their level to create a successful experience.
