Caufield Vancouver Mayday May 2015


Karen Harrison
MayDay committee member

Our Caulfeild Mayday committee hired Party Ponies for our event after receiving very positive reviews of the company's work at the West Vancouver Pumpkin Fest
Bette-lyn and all of her team more than lived up to our expectations.
We got excellent service at a very fair price and the pony rides and petting farm were the most popular activity at our event.!
Bette-lyn seems to really care about her animals which impressed me.
She was reliable and pleasant to deal with
I would strongly recommend anyone hire Party Ponies.

A  great big thank you to all from Party Ponies who helped us with our event on Sunday!
You were a very big part of our very successful day. The weather co-operated, the crowds came, enjoyed the activities and were not disappointed.
Your animals and creativity along with the childrens’ interactive activities made for a great success. The kids loved it; the lineups were the confirmation.
Our success is due in a large part to the dedication, creativity and hard work of your team.


We look forward to next year and hope you will join us again.

Thank you and your whole crewof humans and animals - you were quite the hit of the event! We estimated we had over 5,000 people yesterday...way beyond what we imagined. Your whole team was fantastic and were a true highlight of the whole event.

I have had the pleasure of having several activities for children with Bette-Lyn Eger of Pony Parties and Farm Ventures, both at her Roberts Creek location and at various public and private functions. I have noticed how well Bette-Lyn treats her animals and birds – they are like family to her. When Bette-Lyn is at an event, she always is very outgoing with the children and wonderfully caring as well. Her horses and ponies are well trained and very gentle, and when she brings the petting farm, there are always lots of animals and birds available for the children to pet or cuddle. The smiles on the children’s faces say it all!

"Party Ponies and Farm Ventures is an excellent option for fun, community gatherings; especially those involving children of any ages! We partnered with this great, local business for our Moms and Tots Camp this past summer. Bette-lyn was exceptionally helpful in making arrangements and even came for a site visit before the event to ensure everything would go smoothly. We had over a hundred moms and their young children thrilled to bits when the animals arrived. Even our staff were having a blast while walking the pony, cuddling the rooster and petting the pig. The staff were very approachable and professional, and even made sure to "clean up" on their way out. This was our most successful family fun afternoon to date, by and large due to the wonderful people and animals from Party Ponies and Farm Ventures."

Gibsons Wildlife Rehab. Centre

Irene Davy
Wildlife Care Supervisor

For two years Bette-Lyn Eger of Party Ponies and Farm Ventures has held a fund raiser for Gibsons Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre at her farm in Roberts Creek. This occasion is one of the highlights of our year as, although not dealing with wildlife, it is wonderful to see how well looked after and loved all of her animals and birds are. As a large number of people attend this event, Bette-Lyn's number one concern is that there are enough volunteers to look after the animals and birds to ensure they are not harmed in any way. An example of this is that children are not allowed to run around picking up small animals, they have to be seated on the ground and an animal or bird is brought to them. We have watched Bette-Lyn with the animals and it is obvious they love her as much as she loves them. We are looking forward to next year's visit to the farm.

Pender Harbour May Day

Marlene Cymbalist

It was so nice meeting you and having your Petting Zoo come to participate in our Pender Harbour May Day. Thank you, we have had so many nice comments about your petting zoo and the pony rides. The day gave the children the opportunity to connect with animals in a very memorable and enriching way they will remember for ever. I do hope it was beneficial for yourselves as well and look forward to doing business with you again one day.

School District No. 46 (Sunshine Coast)

Kirsten Deasey
Early Years Coordinator

The Sunshine Coast Early Years Fair, sponsored by School District No. 46, Success by Six, and our community, had Party Ponies and Farm Ventures setup their petting zoo in their school gym this past year. Hundreds of children under five years old and their families had the opportunity to interact with the animals, and were thrilled with their calm, sweet dispositions. The animals were healthy, and obviously well-cared for, and the children were able to spend time with a wide variety of birds and animals, some of which were just young themselves. The staff were very professional and accommodating. A site-visit took place before the event, and the staff shared tips and information with the families to make each child's experience memorable. Party Ponies and Farm Ventures brought everything they needed, and afterwards all of the fencing was removed, the tarps taken out and the clean-up was completed in under an hour. We also had 2 ponies for the children to ride, which was a highlight for all. We look forward to including Party Ponies and Farm Ventures in our future events!

Wow, that was such an incredible time we had with you on Saturday.

It amazed me to see how the seniors responded to the animals. Two other of my friends also held birds for the first time. I had to laugh at myself as I bragged on Facebook about holding Mopsy and then in the evening chapel service, I was at the back doing the computer stuff and a hummingbird got caught in the building. It was right behind me fluttering away. I thought I held a big chicken today but I am terrified of this beautiful little bird. Guess I have some more work to do! But I comforted myself that Mopsy knows she is loved. And I'm happy to report the hummingbird was safely rescued and released outdoors by an old Scout!

Thanks again - everyone from the smallest to the eldest loved it!

Thank you again for the wonderful day at the farm. The students had a marvelous time and will always remember that experience! You truly did a magnificent job preparing everything for us and guiding us around....the entire day went so smoothly! I am sending along a few of the photos I took (ended up with 94 in total)! If you would like a few more, I can send them along...the rest are mostly of the children riding Sunny and many of the animals on the farm! We were so fortunate with the weather as well....a perfect day! Well

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you once again for an amazing field trip for my Kindergarten students. I love going to your farm! The children had an amazing time and this experience is one that will last each of them a lifetime! ...thank you again for
everything!

Thank you so much for a fantastic afternoon! The girls loved it and it was so exciting to see some of the girls getting over their fears and jumping right in. I know they were very excited (aka loud, noisy, happy) and I thank you for your patience with them. Everything was perfect.

We will surely be returning next year.

"I was "kidnapped" by my friends for an 80th birthday surprise visit to the “Party Ponies and Farm Ventures” farm in Roberts Creek, on the Sunshine Coast of BC.
I can’t think of a better way to celebrate! We were welcomed by the resident “guard” dogs, Tundra and Zephyr … and swept into the barnyard where we met and fed, every kind of chicken, goose, duck, peacock, peahen and turkey, as well as miniature piglets and Mrs Skittles, the resident goat.
I love animals, and was thrilled to go on to meet Snowy, a beautiful Andalusian horse who promptly gave me a kiss, and his friendly llama companion, Dodger. In the indoor shelters we met cuddly rabbits and guinea pigs, rare chicken breeds, and Lindenza, another beautiful Andalusian horse who sang ”Happy Birthday” to me, and gave me a shoulder massage!
A wonderful two hours, and upon leaving I was given a beautiful peacock feather for my birthday gift!
Needless to say, when my family from Britain visited recently, I immediately organized for them to visit the farm! They were welcomed by “Pringles”, (a miniature pig in a red sweater), as well as Tundra and Zephyr. They were equally enchanted by the whole experience. They wanted to take the micro piglets home with them!
Thanks to Bette-lyn for the loving, generous sharing of her beautiful animals. We will never forget you all…and there is no doubt I will be returning with more visitors!!"

Bette-Lyn's, love of animals, and their flare with working with children, are a winning combination, when hosting each individual "pony party". Their ideas for games, party hats, prizes, and food are tailored around each group of children. Children could interact with the many different types of animals and birds, while safely in the hands of Bette-Lyn and helpers.

Not one detail was forgotten and nothing for Mom & Dad to do, but sit back on a bale of hay in the sunshine watching the smiling faces of every child who was lucky enough to spend an afternoon at this favourite family farm. It will always be my fondest memory, and my gift to my grandchildren.

We couldn't have done it without Bette-Lyn at her wonderful family farm.

We had a great time, it was soooo awesome. The people were very nice and they all said very Happy Birthday and it was the Best Birthday Ever.

 

Laura

 

What an amazing adventure! We made the trip with 13 kids all the way from Vancouver and it couldn't have been better! Bette-Lyn and the animals greeted us with warm smiles and friendliness. The kids were squealing with delight. The animals were so loving and sweet - they are obviously loved so much by Bette-Lyn and her family as they are so comfortable with the kids. There is no doubt that we will be back to see Lollipop, Tundra,Tea cup, etc, etc.... but most of all Gobbles!!

Thank you for "the best birthday party ever" (from the kids).

 

Meaghan Spithoff (Daren and Audrey)

Thanks again for such a great party! You are a very gracious host, we had a really nice time. You made the birthday so special for Audrey (and the others), and she will honestly never forget it! You added so many touches that I just would not have thought of myself! I loved how you were with the kids and I will be sure to tell all I know how wonderful it is there! I must say I think I had more fun than the kids!!

Heather


Thank you for the wonderful birthday party on Sunday. My son Phoenix loved visiting with all the animals, and the horse ride was a highlight. It was great to have your knowledgeable guidance as the children learned about the animals on the farm, and the outdoor space was both casual and spacious. It was particularly great for the kids to have the animals become an integral part of the event. I would recommend a pony party at Mystique Andalusians to anyone who wants a fun, engaging, and wholesome birthday party activity for their child.
thanks again, such a great and memorable day!

Laura

The party was the talk of the town this morning at school - and parents kept saying "oh I thought the kids were talking about people they had met on the farm but then I realized they were talking about the animals - they just called them by name!!".

Melanie, Jonah & Jordan

I just wanted to take the time to thank you so much for all your help with Jonah's birthday party. Everyone had so much fun, even the moms & dads, and grandparents. We got some really cute photos. The Goodie/hats turned out well & all the girls were happy with their trinkets. What a wonderful service you offer. We will definitely be back to visit another day. We had a lovely time :-)

I want to say thank you for the wonderful farm adventure/party. The girls are still talking about it and I'm still smiling too. It's obvious that you love what you do as it shows in your happy healthy animals. We had a wonderful time, a better experience than our recent trip to the Toronto Zoo! So much more engaging.
I'll spread the word as will my friend Colleen that just emailed to tell me what a wonderful time she had as well.

This is my first time here....and I had tons of fun! I liked everything I did since I just stepped in. It was awesome! The dogs, Tetley the pig, the talking horse, and all the other stuff we did. My favourite was holding the baby chick! (usually I am scared of most birds...including chickens). I really hope we come soon.

Robyn

Thank you SO much for a wonderful 6th birthday party. Best one ever and you and staff were amazing, with all 23 kids!!!!

Danica and family

My 5 year old had an absolute blast on her birthday at the farm. The whole thing is well planned out, with a wide variety of incredibly people friendly animals, funny tricks, a very special pony ride, and a lovely atmosphere. She had a smile on her face the entire time, as did all the other kids (and adults!)

Josuah

I'm 9 years old. Our family came to Sechelt in october and we came to your farm. I'm the oldest of the four kids. We're from Edmonton. We also ran into you at the apple festival.

It was cool to be at your farm. I also liked riding your horse snowy. And I also liked the pig, chickens, bunnies, and peacocks.

After visiting your farm I became a vegetarian because the animals were super cute.

Minnie
We appreciate that you organized a fabulous birthday party for Khloris!  All of our friends had a wonderful time. One of my friend said that was the best birthday party she had ever been. All of them said that they had to come to your farm again for sure. We also thank you for your free range eggs! Those special eggs only for Khloris.? Thank you again!

See you in summer. Take care!?
