“Pony Parties” thrill Deeside Youths

Carol Crichton, from Torphins, has come up with a unique way to celebrate a birthday - with a “pony party”.

Here, children can have pony rides for the duration of the special event they are celebrating.

Mrs Crichton supplies the ponies from her farm outside of Torphins.

“I came up with idea about four months ago, my children have been riding since they could walk and we’ve always had ponies at the farm so I thought ‘why not?’” she said.

“I’ve been riding since I was five and had ponies since I was twelve myself.”

Mrs Crichton will either accommodate for parties at her farm, or if the space is large enough drive out to the customer for them.

“They’ve proven really popular, we have bookings up to next year and we’ve launched a website,” she said.
