A Zoo To You is deeply committed to safety of our ponies and your guests. Our Ponies are hand-led by an experienced handler or when booking a 6-Pony wheel, they are on a wheel that moves in a circle for optimal control and safety and run by a minimum of 2 handlers. Most importantly, our ponies are calm and friendly. Ponies are confident by nature and adjust easily to the many new environments they visit.
