Dear Kathryn, Thank you so much for all your hard work in making Ava's birthday party so magical! All our friends had a wonderful time, as did we. You made it so seamless and you were amazing with the children. I am especially grateful for the way you answered Noah's question about how his wishes never come true. His wish will never come true, but when he is old enough to realise that, he'll also understand that it is for the best. So your response was perfect. Ava has not stopped talking about her party, she loved it all so much. Thanks again!

Thank you for providing a fantastic birthday party for my daughter. I wasn't entirely sure what to expect but you really did a wonderful job. You have such a kind and gentle manner with the children yet firm too in regards to safety. It was heart-warming to watch you interact with them, making sure they were all included in the many activities and remembering their names. That was really special. I thought the facility itself was perfect for your parties with plenty of space and all the necessities. And who can forget the animals join in! You had planned for everything - it took a lot of stress away for me. Aside from all this, I would like to thank you for your professional approach right from booking to the follow up before and after the party. Kathryn, you really do offer such a wonderful experience for children (and parents alike) and you should be just so proud of what you can offer. My daughter enjoyed it so much; she intends to come back for some private riding time.

Many thanks Rachel Barr

Thanks for a great afternoon! Kids really loved it! You do a great job! Thanks again!

What an amazing experience with my daughter's private lesson today, Kathryn was highly skilled, patient and had a great way of explaining things to my five year old. In her first lesson she brushed and lead the pony and was rising to the trot. Kathryn has utmost respect for her ponies and this shows in their manner with the children. Highly recommended

We just had my daughters 5th birthday party today and I have to say, it was INCREDIBLE! I only wish I had known about Pony Tales Parties sooner. Kathryn was an amazing host, making sure everything ran absolutely smoothly! And the venue itself was stunning. The ponies were fabulous, the children loved the games, and to be honest I couldn't be more happy with how the entire event went. Thank you so so much Pony Tales Parties!!

Dear Kathryn Just wish to thank you very much for a fabulous party the children all enjoyed themselves and Samantha most definitely loved every minute. You are running a wonderful business and it is such a pleasure to see someone doing what they love, a lifestyle to love I would say and bringing such delight to all the little ones. Thanks once again, completely stress free and was a god-sent not to have to do anything but turn up with some food. Cheers Tanya

Amazing amazing amazing! My step daughter does lessons with Kathryn and recently had her birthday party which was just perfect. If you want a place that your child learns to love horses, grows confidence and walks away with a smile every time this is the place :)

Hi Kathryn Thanks so much for having us and making Tessa's day so special. She had such a great time and the other kids also really enjoyed the day. It is lovely to have something so special for their 5th birthdays! I have been recommending the parties to friends. The kids really enjoyed the spell so I think it was a big success.

Oh Kathryn! How can I ever thank you? Becky's party was her 'best ever yet Mummy!' She adored Jonte, Star and Spirit and has not stopped raving about her special day. Thank you so much for all the wonderful ways you made her day so special. You were so personable and lovely, from the minute we met, we felt like we had always known you. Your party venue is the best we have ever been to. Every little touch combined together to make for a very very special day. You don't just create childhood memories at Pony Tales, you create the best ever childhood memories. Thank you. John and I are just so thrilled with how brilliant the afternoon was... it was all we hoped it would be and so much more. Please give the ponies a big cuddle of thanks from all of us. We miss them already!
