Want to create your own special memories down on the farm? You're in luck! We're giving away a four-pack of express pony rides AND free admission to the petting zoo, including feed for the animals. More on how to enter at the end of this post.
March Ride Special
Just in time for spring, The Farm at Gardner Village is offering special Tuesday pony rides for only $2! That's right, their $5 rides are discounted by more than half every Tuesday this month. Or you can still enjoy the full Village ride for $10. The Farm is now open year round, Monday through Saturday.
Cowboy Gil is an amazing tour guide. He'll give you the hat right off his head without hesitation.
As we passed other kiddos throughout the Village on our ride, Cowboy Gil greeted each of the children by name. He loves each of those children as much as they clearly love him. In fact, he stopped mid ride to give a ride of his own to one of the sweet babes we passed. He truly is the kids' cowboy and half of the fun of the pony ride experience.
The extended ride includes a trip past some of your favorite Gardner Village shops. I can think of no better way to view the Village than this.
Why, yes, that is a pretty pony in a toy store! Only at Gardner Village do your children experience such magic.
Once we were back at the more-than-okay coral, my daughter enjoyed visiting with the rest of the animals on the farm, including sheep, goats, alpacas, cows, horses, chickens, ducks, more ponies, and Maggie's personal fav, the bunnies!
But this is far more than a petting zoo. This is a rescue farm, and each of the beautiful animals living here, as well as many others who were off site at another farm (they rotate the animals at the zoo so they don't get overwhelmed), are animals who've been rescued from poor situations. This farm is their second chance at life.
The fun included an amazing moment when we got to meet two brand new baby goats. One was only a day old. Aren't they adorable?
