I am originally from the UK, where as a child a trip to the seaside and a donkey ride on the beach went hand in hand. I have always liked these curious, gentle, mischievous creatures so I guess it was only a matter of time before I acquired some of my own! I now live with my family on an acreage just south of Lethbridge, Alberta.  We share our home with 10 cats,4 dogs, 3 donkeys, 2 ponies, 2 norwegian fjord horses and two quarter horses.
Can you imagine having our donkeys or ponies at your child's next birthday party?....or a church picnic?.....fundraising event?....daycare or preschool visit?......if you can dream it we will do our best to make it happen.  Either donkey or pony rides or just a "hands on" visit, or a combination of the two, let us make your next event a party to remember!  We will arrive a few minutes early and be tacked up and ready to go on time. All droppings will be cleaned up and removed prior to our departure. Don't have a big back yard? No problem! We can give donkey or pony rides out on the drive or in the front yard!
For your peace of mind we carry full insurance. All riders are required to wear helmets (we supply). Waiver forms are to be completed for all riders. Our donkeys and ponies receive regular veterinary visits and are kept up to date on vaccinations, deworming and farrier care. They will arrive freshly bathed (weather permitting) or well groomed and ready to party!


About me....and the donkeys....
Seaside donkeys are still a popular attraction on Britain's beaches. These lovable, long eared critters have been a fixture in towns such as Blackpool since Victorian times.
