Our Mission
Personal Ponies mission is to simply make magic in children's lives, to bring smiles and joy in the most unusual way.  We believe that the lives of children are immeasurably enriched by having a small equine companion to love and care for -- so this is what we do.
Our ponies are uniquely suited in temperament and size to those who we serve.  We provide children with an opportunity to bond and care for a small United Kingdom pony absolutely free.
