Private Pony Ride Activity Now Open for Online Registration
Lionel’s Farm is happy to offer a safe and fun outdoor activity that helps prevent the spread of COVID-19. As per Provincial Government Guidelines we can now offer a Private Pony Ride Package.
With recent changes to Ontario COVID-19 rules, our Private Pony Ride Package only allows a maximum of 10 people to participate at one time.
- Pony ride for children 65lbs and under
- Qualified pony handler
- Viewing of some of our farm animals
Our facilities can accommodate visits rain or shine.
No outside food is allowed which includes snacks for people, or food for the ponies or other animals at the farm.
All staff at the farm are family members and live on the farm. There are currently no outside staff employed at our property. We will be wearing masks. The saddles will be disinfected before your group visit. Visitors must wash or sanitize their hands upon arrival, and again before they leave the farm. Visitors are recommended to wear a face covering during their time at the farm.
The Private Pony Ride packages are 30 minutes in length, Tuesday to Sunday, 10am-3:30pm. These must be PRE-REGISTERED and PRE-PAID. Times will be booked on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be no refunds, as we can accommodate the activity rain or shine. Pony rides are done in a large covered riding arena. If for some reason Lionel’s Farm cancels, you will be allowed to choose a new date and time (based on availability) that works for you.
The Private Pony Ride Package costs $56.50.
The price includes up to 5 people in your group, adults and children. With the recent lifting of restrictions to a maximum of 10 people, there is an additional charge of $5.65 per person above the base price of $56.50 if your group is larger than 5 people. Children under 1 year of age are free and are not counted as part of your group. Rescheduling fees apply.
The only way to book your spot is to complete and pay using the online Activity Registration form on this page (see below). At this time there will be no bookings made by telephone, or social media.
You will receive a confirmation email with your reserved date and time. You will also receive an email receipt with confirmation of your payment.
Add on to your Pony Ride Package and visit the main petting farm animals, you may choose this option at the end of the pony rides. No need to pre-book.
