Parsons' Pony Farm 
Florence, Montana         established 1994   
     Parsons           Ponies 
    are perfect
      for kids!

Pony rides in the Bitterroot Mountains are a memorable experience, and they are available year round.  

PonyWood Forest 

This ride is about 15 minutes long and the young rider can choose from among five different trails.
some riders can't quit after just one ride


 Hidden Pond Trail

This ride is about 40 minutes long and includes a PonyWood Forest Trail, then on up the mountain to find the pond.   Riders can practice on some  up and down terrain.
Ducking under the branches in the trees near the pond is really fun.
Loop the Loop Trail-Plus
This experience takes about  70 minutes,  and  it has it all.!  
It starts with a hands on lesson
in grooming,
hoof cleaning,
and saddling.  Then off to PonyWood Forest, followed by a mountain riding adventure on a loop trail.  There are seasonal creeks to cross, some seasonal wildlife to spot,
and year round mountain riding to enjoy.  
Parents are welcome to hike along on any trail, or they may decide to relax
at the shaded picnic tables.  
There's even a hammock in the summer months.  

 The ponies also  travel to off site events   such as:
birthday parties, family reunions, grand openings, and others.  
Off site ponies start at $100.00 for three ponies.

 There is no age limit for pony riders, but there is a 100 lb. weight limit for riding the ponies except for big beautifulRoanie.
   Roanie is a red roan section B Welsh pony standing a mighty 12.2 Hands.  That is about 50 inches at the withers.  
He has  easily and  safely carried
riders up to 140 lbs.                     Here Roanie is showing off his furry winter coat. 
    The friendly gentle ponies attend about 30 birthday parties a year.  They also work at Farmer's Markets and the Missoula Corn Maze.  
    The generous ponies donate rides to many  local non-profits each year
   One of the favorites is the annual Ravalli County  Relay for Life for the last 
 18 years!

PonyWood Forest
The trio will continue to the Choosing Tree where the lucky cowgirl can take her pick
from among five trails through the forest.  They'll be on the look-out for the fun to find  Grandpa Trees as they ride.  
In August of 2013  ponies  Molly, Frosty, and Milly helped Stevensville, MT.   celebrate the 100th anniversary of the
   "Creamery Picnic Parade". 
   In this picture they are perfectly aligned, with their chest tags reading 100!
