Birthday Party Trail Rides


Birthday Parties

 

  • Blue Wave Stables does offer  Birthday Party Trail Rides. 
    • If you want to give your horse loving daughter the memory of a life-time give her a Birthday Trail Ride at Blue Wave Stable!
  • The Birthday Trail-Ride includes:
    • Picnic and Birthday tables,
    • Horse Petting Area,
    • A Mini Riding Lesson,
    • Arena Practice Time
    • Two Mile Trail-ride with escorts and a guide.
    •  We finish up with a photo shoot after each group of riders come back, from the trail-ride.
    •   Non-riding guests are free to tour the stable,  watching the horses or go on a hike on our trails.  We have a bbq grill and the ability to have pizza delivered, a refrigerator/freezer if you want to bring cake and ice-cream.  If you want additional services please let us know and we would be happy to price out whatever you want to do.
  • Trail-ride  Birthday Party Price by amount of riders attending.  Pricing is $30 per rider (tips are appreciated!)  Additional non riding guests are welcome  at no charge.  We only charge for those riding horses.
  • Parties last approximately 90 for the first 10 riders.
  • Every 5 additional riders adds approximately 30 minutes to the length of time it takes to trail ride.
  • If you want to do a family outing or a business meeting, we are happy to provide a  package.  Pricing would be the same as the birthday party trail-rides.
  • When it is cold out we sometimes will get a fire going in the open fire pit.  If  there are young children to be attending please let us know because it would not be safe to have an open campfire with children who are to young to understand.

 

  • Frequently Asked Questions and Helpful Hints
  •  We only charge for those who are riding.
  • The process is we make sure all the liability paperwork has been signed for all the riders and attendees. The Liability Paper Work can be down loaded by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.  Everyone visiting that is over 18 MUST sign the liability waiver.  All attendees under 18 must have their parents or guardians sign the waiver.   That is the very first step.  Unfortunately riders that do not have a signed liability waiver will not be able to ride.   I appreciate your understanding on this matter.  I wish I did not even have to ask.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter. AGAIN THE LIABILITY PAPERWORK CAN BE DOWN LOADED BY CLICKING ON THE LINK AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS PAGE.
  • We have a picnic table, a regular table with tablecloth, and a  3/4  size refrigerator/freezer.  We also have a BBQ gas grill if you want to fix burgers or such. (Please reserve if you need these amenities.)
  • There is a bathroom at the stable and is located on the left  as you first enter the barn.
  • After everyone is checked in, we introduce the kids to the horses and I do a “rules and understanding horses” session.  Then I have the adult in charge separate the kids into groups of 5 -8 depending on how big the party and how many horses/helpers I have.
  • The kids get helmets on, it would be a great help if they brought their own bike helmets.
  •  The kids put on their helmets and go stand in line out by the Arena.  The horses will be standing in line inside the arena.  Each child will pick out their horse, walk over to it and then be helped mounting.
  • The picking process is something we do one at a time.  Once all the horses available have riders the rest of the kids go back out front and wait their turn to ride.
  • I suggest the party hostess have a game plan for the kids because each ride lasts about 20 minutes.  I leave the entertainment up to the adults arranging the party.  I will be leading the trail-ride and do not have the staff to do that part of the party.  Children are welcome to pet the miniature horse as long as they have an escort.
  • The Birthday Rider gets to pick out their horse first…is a standing rule unless parents decide otherwise.
  • All horses will be lead by escorts.  No one will be allowed to ride on their own.  It is to dangerous to have that many inexperienced people riding horses without escorts.  Plus it only makes it fair if all the riders have the same experience.
  • If you want a smaller birthday party where the kids are allowed to ride on their own in the arena and I give them a lesson, that can be arranged as well.
  •  Please let me know if you want a party 6 riders or under where all the riders will be riding themselves and I will be giving a lesson.
  • Riders only get one trail-ride around or they will be counted as a second rider.
  • I will announce the last trail-ride.
  • After the last trail-ride we respectfully ask the party to not stay longer than an hour.  Also we ask to please clean up after yourselves.
  • Please do not enter into the tack rooms unless I specifically ask you too.  The only room guests are allowed to use is the bathroom and member room is only for those who need access to the refrigerator/freezer .  All others I respectfully ask you to not enter.  It is tight quarters as it is and I have barn members and boarders who need to get access to their equipment.
  • Please ask the children to not run and scream  around the barn.  I know they get excited and that is fine.  But if they could please keep there running and screaming out in front of the barn and not around the back or inside.  It is extremely dangerous.  My horses are sweet animals.  They are my pets…but they are big and just a slight jump could crush a child. Keeping the kids from running thorough the barn and screaming will definitely help prevent any unwanted accidents.  THANK YOU!
