Will you bring ponies to our location?
Is this a heated indoor facility?
No. We do not have an indoor riding arena, and although it's cozy, the party barn (the "Carriage House") is NOT heated! Before booking, please consider that all rides are outside and subject to "Rochester weather"! Dress appropriately.
Are helmets and boots required?
We provide NYS required ASTM safety certified helmets for all riders. Bike helmets are not allowed. Helmets must fit securely, so be advised that headbands, tiaras/crowns, pony tails, up-do's, hair buns etc. may be removed or adjusted to ensure a proper helmet fit.
Boots are not necessary, but closed toe footwear is required. No flip flops or open sandals.
Can we choose our pony or horse?
We'll do our best to accommodate any specific requests! Ultimately, all animals will be assigned to events by our staff primarily based upon availability and other factors. We take in to consideration the age/weight/size of guests who will be riding. in order to accommodate every child. We do our best to serve your specific requests but we also need to consider the safety and comfort of the riders and our animals.
What if it rains?
In the event of inclement weather, you may choose to reschedule your party for a later date, or cancel within 24 hours of your party and your deposit will be refunded in full. We rarely cancel due to rain, as we are able to provide pony rides and interaction with the animals in light or intermittent rain, provided there are no high winds or thunder/lightening.
What about insurance?
No problem! Never Say Never Stables carries full commercial liability insurance for all riding and animal related services we provide. For all parties, we require that your guests sign our liability waiver upon or prior to arrival.

"Everyone very much enjoyed the birthday party this past Saturday and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. Kids and live animals, with the chance to touch/ride them… perfect birthday party! Everything was very organized and well-planned out. I appreciate the schedule being sent ahead of time. And I appreciate the flexibility in having us do the pony riding first with the lurking thunderstorms. Marguerite was great - interacts well with kids and adults. Thank you for the wonderful birthday party!"

"We had my daughters 4th birthday party here today. There were 8 children at our party. My family can't stop gushing about how perfect it was. We were running late with our 2 kids. We arrived 3 minutes before party time but it didn't matter! The party was all set up, beautifully, and all we had to do was bring in our drinks and snacks and set the cake on the table and wait for the guests!If I could rate this place 10 stars, I would. The kids all got to ride an adorably decorated pony, they all got to pet a bunny, a chicken, a duck and feed and pet goats. We loved the stick pony obstacle course and playground. There were more activities that we didn't even get to because the kids were just so happy with what they were all doing together. Nobody argued, nobody fought, it was just refreshing for us parents to actually be able to sit down and enjoy the party instead of going crazy with hosting and keeping kids occupied!h Thank you, Marguerite, for the best birthday ever. We will absolutely be back in August for my sons 2nd birthday, probably with the same crew of kids!"

"We had an amazing time! Ryn's favorite part was riding the pony. Marguerite was amazing with the kids, will definitely recommend it to others."
"My daughter's birthday party was fantastic! She loved every minute of it and did not want to leave. Marguerite and the other girl were WONDERFUL! I didn't have to do much of anything besides enjoy watching the kids have a blast. She was so great with instructing the kids before riding the pony and showing them all the animals. I would 100% recommend Never Say Never Stables for a birthday venue!
Thanks to everyone who helped make the party a success!"
The party was simply amazing and the kids had such a great time! Marguerite and the other staff were incredible. Thank you again :)
