Animal feeding experience

Your kids will enjoy feeding our animals. Our large farm is open all week to accommodate your busy schedule. Miami Equestrian Club gives you and your family the friendliest animal feeding experience. You will find a petting zoo that allows you and your family to touch and feed our farm animals.

Several animals call our ranch home. How many times do you get the chance to feed an animal? Feeding them can be a great experience your kids will talk about for a long time. Most of our clients keep coming back with their families.

What to feed

Ponies particularly enjoy healthy treats such as apple slices, bananas, and carrots but other commercially made options that won’t spoil so fast, very convenient especially if you are on the road. Healthy foods close to their regular diet will help avoid the chances of digestive upsets. It is crucial you feed them small amounts.

What not to feed

There are some treats you should avoid. For example, cabbage, cauliflower, and broccoli can cause severe gas. Tomatoes and potatoes are also not recommended. Unpitted stone fruits can cause shock, and fresh bread, pastries, and so on, can cause blockage in the digestive tract. Lawn clippings should be avoided since they may contain poisonous plants, and also cause choke.

Pony grooming experience

Miami Equestrian Club is a great place to spend time with our ponies. The pony grooming experience helps your children learn about horsemanship, and life on the farm, in a family-friendly atmosphere. Your children will learn to handle our ponies, the essentials of grooming and also safety. Our ponies love to be handled, and they will stand quietly. Other vital skills such as mounting and dismounting, steering, and gaining confidence in the saddle can be learned with bigger horses at our horse riding lessons.

The pony grooming experience can be beneficial for several reasons:

  • It helps create a bond with the pony.
  • It allows your kids to learn about the pony’s body.
  • It is a pleasurable experience for your children.

We provide some essential grooming equipment such as cleaning gloves and brushes. Warmer temperatures mean more shedding and almost daily grooming requirements, especially during our summer camp Miami when our ponies enjoy getting groomed more than any time of the year.

Meet our baby farm animals

You can enjoy meeting our baby farm animals and take home some adorable photographs. Animals need as much love and support as humans do. Companionship is essential to a happy life. Baby animals are gentle and willing to be loved and cared for. It is difficult to resist baby animals. Their innocent faces freely display so much hope and life. We work hard to protect our animals, and we want you to become part of the most incredible and best animal experiences. Our petting zoo in Miami gives families the chance to see a variety of animals your children may never meet otherwise.

How does Miami Petting Zoo treat our petting zoo animals?

We understand the importance of each of our animals. Out here in the country at our Miami petting zoo, we know them well and treat them like family. It’s our responsibility to do so, and we take it seriously. When our animals are sick, we give them medicine. They are looked for by veterinarians and trained staff who know what they are doing. Zoo farm animals deserve to be treated humanely. That’s why we spend our day making sure they have everything they need and feel free from any stress.
