Snows Pony Rides & Farm Animals has been making dreams come true since 1995 out of Valley Center, California. Serving all of Southern California, our family owned and operated company prides itself on quality customer service and providing memorable events with our happy and healthy animals. We take a small business approach by providing excellent customer service and tailoring events to meet the specific needs of each customer.


Snows’ provides family fun at many local events and locations, including the Del Mar Horse Races, Bates Nut Farm, Santee Lakes and Old Poway Park. 


Though we offer several preset packages we can customize options to fit your specific needs. We provide services for all types of event including birthday parties, corporate or church events, schools, military, holiday events, picnics, nativity scenes etc.  We attend events rain or shine and can accommodate events at your home, place of business, or in many local parks. (Please contact your city administrators for more information about animal zoning.)

Our Services

Small Events

Typically for small to medium size events we do hand led pony rides and/or various size petting zoos. We take into consideration how many children will be at the event when determining how many ponies you should have. We also offer larger ponies for older or bigger children. Please inquire for further details.

Large Events

For larger events we offer a pony wheel with surrounding fence. The pony wheel is designed to cater to a larger group of people by maximizing the amount of children who can ride during a certain amount of time but also reducing the cost of having multiple workers to walk the ponies. Pony wheels require a minimum of 4 ponies and a maximum of 8 ponies. Please let us know if you think a pony wheel would be beneficial for your event.


Other Services

There is no limit to what we can do for your event! We like to get creative so if you have any ideas please run it by us to see if we can accommodate your needs. We have a miniature donkey who we commonly use for nativity scenes or as a photo prop for Cinco De Mayo events. We have even used one of our ponies as a photo prop for a opening Race Day party.  We also work closely with North County Jumpers if you need a jumpy for your event. Check out their website for further information.
