"My daughter had the best time at her party here!!  A big thank you to Chris, Don, and their helpers, some of the kindest and most patient people and horses!!  She is still looking forward to her riding lessons in the near future :)  C.M.


"The birthday party exceeded our expectations!  The setting and horses were beautiful, but above all, you made us all feel so welcome and relaxed.  The children had a blast and formed a memory they will each have forever.  Thank you for creating such a magical day for our sweet daughter.  This morning when she woke up, she asked if she could have her '5 birthday' there too!!"  K.K.

Birthday parties at an actual, working, horse farm are extra special.  All the activities revolve around the horses . . . petting the horses' velvety noses, brushing their soft, silky coats and long manes, and of course, riding on a beautiful horse.  Lots of other fun activities are also available, such as Stonecrest's talented horses helping each guest paint a picture to take home as a party favor!  To finish off a happy time on the farm, Farmer Don can also provide a tractor-drawn hayride.  Parents will appreciate that Stonecrest provides everything they need for the party, such as the decorations and paper products, and the set-up of tables, table covers, and seating in the barn.  We handle all the clean-up, too.  The only things you have to provide are the refreshments and the children :) 

"This was by far the BEST party either of my kids have ever had.  Chris and Don were so welcoming and wonderful.  I can't thank you both enough for opening up your farm for us.  It felt more like the kids were visiting a favorite aunt and uncle."   S.B.



"When we asked our daughter what she wanted to do for her birthday, she said she wanted to have a party at the farm.  We started looking for horse parties and came across Stonecrest Farms.  We knew it would be great for what we were looking for.  The kids had an absolute blast and Don and Chris did a great job with the kids.  Gwen and Bahjah were so much fun for them to ride.  Wonderful time!"  W.R.


"Thank you both so much for a great afternoon.  Our daughter's first horse riding experience was everything we could have hoped for.  We were very pleased that her friends and their parents really enjoyed themselves, too.  There will certainly be more horse time in our future.  We will also be sure to spread the word about our experience and will be happy to recommend Stonecrest."  J.R.


"We had so much fun yesterday with all the activities you planned for us.  Thank you so much for allowing parties to be held on the is beautiful!  May God continue to bless you and your family!"    S.W.
