A horse riding party is so much fun, and will make for amazing memories that your guests will never forget.

Follow this simple guide to hosting your perfect horse riding party:

 

Party Venue

Before getting into the details, you'll want to find a venue for your party. There are a few different options when it comes to finding a venue:

  • Find a venue that also does party food, and have the entire party there.
  • Have the party at two separate venues - the horse riding in one place and the food and games at another.
  • If you own horses, have the entire party at your house/stables.

 

Party Invitations

Once you have decided on your venue, you will need your party invitations. Look online to find your perfect invites - there are so many unique designs to choose from.

You'll need to include the date, time, and location of the party, as well as your child's name and your RSVP details.

Remember to ask guests to bring a spare change of clothes - horse riding can get messy!

 

Riding the horses

You'll want to take a few things into consideration before getting straight into the horse riding.

After the horse riding, the children will be sure to have worked up an appetite.
