Children are full of energy, which is why they love to run around and are often named after local coal plants. Watch little Municipal Plant 7 burn off some steam with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $15 for a punch card good for three pony rides (a $30 value)
- $15 for an Exotic Animal Adventure or a Mini-Riders Mommy and Me class for one child (a $30 value)
On a pony ride, children ages 2–10 climb aboard a horse or pony to take three laps around the ring Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. During the 50-minute Exotic Animal Adventure, kids ages 1–6 can feed, groom, and help care for barnyard and exotic animals, including a kangaroo, baby deer, ferrets, guinea pigs, and a variety of birds. Alternately, the 45-minute Mini-Riders Mommy and Me class teaches kids ages 1–6 how to handle and groom a miniature horse; they'll also get a chance to ride the pintsize steed in a small enclosure and meet rabbits, chinchillas, and gerbils inside the air-conditioned barn.
Sweet Meadow Farm
Sweet Meadow Farm is not just a kid-friendly equestrian center. Sure, their experienced instructors lead private and group horseback-riding lessons year-round, but the farm also houses an interactive barnyard zoo. Their menagerie of domestic and exotic animals ranges from miniature horses and potbelly pigs to peacocks and kangaroos. Sweet Meadow Farm hosts birthday parties, too, during which kids can meet new critter friends inside the air-conditioned barn and make up secret handshakes that do not require opposable thumbs.
