Mobile Petting Zoo / Central Florida Horse Encounter
OUR UNIQUE MOBILE PETTING ZOO consists of St. Augustine sheep (these sheep have hair, not wool) that have been ultra-domesticated to travel to your home or business to provide a unique experience to the public about sheep, in general. We also have a donkey, a Shetland pony and full-sized horses available to interact with you. We bring whatever animals that you wish to encounter to your home or business office (an outside location, obviously) in order to provide a unique one-on-one experience.
With regard to the horse encounter, this is for anyone (or anyone’s children) who have always wanted to see and learn about horses and their behavior, physiology, care, training, grooming, tacking up (saddling a horse) and basic riding skills, but are unable to easily or conveniently travel to horse farms that provide such an experience, due to work schedules or for whatever reason.
This is INDIVIDUALIZED attention, not group horseback riding, where beginners may feel timid or scared in front of others, but have always wanted to have a horse experience, whatever that may mean to them.
Riding is NOT required, but if desired, we will tack up the animal and have halter/lead rope control over the animal for safety purposes.
We encourage even a little bit of riding, to get the unique feeling and experience of riding a horse, possibly for the first time in your life.
This makes a unique gift for someone that you know who has always wanted to learn more about horses and have an up-close and individual experience with a horse (or pony), with the feeling of being more comfortable about doing it at their own home or business.
There are farms that offer horse “encounters” in the Central Florida area, but they won’t bring the livestock to you. We DO!
Child or Adult parties
Assisted living/nursing home facilities
Pre-schools or day care centers
Private or public schools or anywhere else where we are booked to come and visit to bring happiness, education and spend time with anyone interested in this special mobile animal experience.
Prices below also include riding a pony OR full-sized horse fully tacked while being lead by halter/lead rope by one of our employees at all times, for safety purposes.
Our goal is to have a wonderful experience with you, your children or your business office while answering any questions about these different types of livestock.
