All About Ponyland
Event Manager, Staff Writer
How did Ponyland begin? In 2005 our pony crazed daughter graduated from high school and went to off to college. We still had ponies from when the kids were little who needed a job. Both Brian and Beth are avid horsemen, previous 4-H Saddle Horse Advisors for Lake County and actually first met in 1981 as Lake County 4-Her’s themselves! Ponies are in their blood. Also, Brian’s first job was a pony ride helper back in the mid 1970’s having worked with a renowned local horseman for many years. All of this played a significant part into starting the business.
Established in 2006 under Brian West Enterprises, we officially changed our name in 2008 to a more “pony friendly” atmosphere! We wondered how can we interact with children, teach children about the love of equines and bring the joy of a pony to a child that may only read about them in books. That was when we decided to start the pony business. After the acquisition of a few more ponies, contacting a mentor and navigating the web, we expanded our operation to include a petting zoo we have now grown to be the best premier pony ride & petting zoo operation in Northeast Ohio!
What sets us apart? Our attention to detail! We both carry certified background checks for your child’s safety and are also CPR/First Aid Certified. We go above and beyond with our insurance and participate in voluntary programs through the USDA, Ohio Department of Agriculture, Cleveland Better Business Bureau and local agencies to ensure healthy animals and happy clients!
