Posh Pony Parties

Our fabulous Posh Pony Parties starring Alvin the pony can be held at your event venue within the St George and Sutherland Shire areas of Sydney. Pony Parties are vibrant, fun, child centred and safety is always top of mind. A beautiful way to celebrate a special occasion.

Equine Assisted Learning

Posh Pony Equine Assisted Learning programs are a unique way of fostering awareness, development and growth with people of all ages and abilities who are looking for a gentle, natural way of facilitating change. 

Riding Lessons

Posh Pony’s 30 and 60 minute riding & horsemanship lessons are the perfect introduction for new riders or experienced riders looking to finesse their skills. Lessons are held in a ring on a lunge line where the rider will be supported to learn in safe, confined environment.

let’s meet our

team

Karen Lincoln

As the Director of Posh Pony, a mother and animal lover, Karen is passionate about connecting people with animals and nature to make magic happen. 

Alvin the Pony

Alvin is a Welsh Section A X Australian Miniature Pony and stands just 10.2hh. He loves visiting children’s hospitals, working as a therapy pony and giving rides at parties.

Zappa the Horse

Frank Zappa is our loveable thoroughbred at 16hh. He was too slow on the racetrack so became a show jumper before graduating to a pleasure horse.

Scooter & Sky

Scooter & Sky our loveable pups, Prinz our cuddly cat and our very busy chickens (all named Chicken) round out the Posh Pony team so there’s someone for everyone.

Ms Posh Possum + Baby Posh

Everybody is welcome at Posh Pony and sometimes we have drop in visitors looking for somewhere safe to stay. Our possum box is often a safe haven for mums and bubs and we love their visits!

feedback from our clients

We had Karen and Alvin at my daughter’s third birthday party yesterday and they were a HUGE hit. They were punctual, pleasant and the kids absolutely frothed over it. 💯⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Kerry

We visited Posh Pony on Sunday with my 2.5 year old who loves horses. We had such a fabulous experience. My 2.5 year old got to ride Alvin, dress him up, brush him, paint him and his hoof. He also got to do a lucky dip.
We have already rebooked another pony ride with Alvin and cannot wait to take the grandparents. We have told all our friends what a fantastic experience this is.
My son cannot stop talking about Karen and Alvin. Thank you Karen 🥰

My niece had her first pony ride with Karen and had such a lovely time. She loved Alvin the pony! Karen was very kind and caring and made my niece feel very safe and confident riding Alvin. She already wants to come back! Thanks Karen and Alvin!

Rebecca

What an amazing experience I had with my daughter who had a fear of animals!! It only took one session with Karen for a huge leap! The very next day after that initial session, my daughter passed by a dog in a shopping centre and did not flinch, when she would’ve previously run away, hid in our clothes or froze out of fear! Karen is amazing! We loved the whole experience and look forward to more fun with Alvin (the pony) and Scooter and Sky (the lovely dogs!) 🙂 Highly recommend!

Sally

For quite a few months now my daughter has been having lessons with Karen, Alvin and Frank Zappa. She absolutely loves her time with them. Karen teaches so much more than horse riding techniques. Her lessons are so much fun for my daughter as she is given choice as to what she wants to do and learn that day. I can see Karen has a high emotional intelligence and a wealth of experience in dealing with children and enhancing their learning, confidence and communication in a supportive manner with the help of Alvin and Frankie Zappa. Karen is incredibly dedicated during every lesson and goes above and beyond to ensure my daughter has the best lesson ever! Thank you Karen for teaching my daughter all things horses as well as supporting her emotional wellbeing. We always look forward to seeing you and the adorable Alvin, Frank Zappa, Scooter and Sky!

Debbie

Karen and her team are very experienced in providing meaningful experiences for children interacting with ponies and dogs. Learning about how ponies behave, providing sensory experiences to children (riding, obstacle courses and washing ponies, just to name a few), I can’t wait until I join the kids in a horse ride in the coming weeks!

Paul

I’m a disability support worker. and love when I get to take our clients here Karen is amazing beautiful lady that is awesome at making sure our clients have the best experiences.

Amanda

Posh Pony parties are amazing! We had a cowboy themed party for my 6 year old boy. We only had a small party with just 10 kids and it was great! Karen, Lauren and Alvin did a fantastic job of keeping all the kids entertained. Having a small party meant all the kids got multiple pony rides. They all loved brushing Alvin and decorating him in bows.
All the parents mentioned that it was a great idea for a party and we’re so glad we could do it. We also visit Posh Pony for Equine Therapy with Sensational Kids OT and we love it! My son can’t get enough! Thank you so much to Karen, Lauren and Alvin for helping us throw an amazing party!
Can’t wait to see you guys again soon.

Thank you so much Karen for a wonderful morning, Alvin was such a magical, special unicorn addition to Zali’s 3rd birthday party. The kids all loved him and the birthday girl is still talking about “her special pony”. You guys were amazing with all the children and we can’t thank you enough for being part of Zali’s special day.

Tracy

Absolutely recommend Karen and Alvin for any unicorn, horse or pony lover! Not only do all the kids get rides on him they got to brush him and decorate him with bows. My daughter is very shy and they were so patient with her until she warmed up to Alvin. She is still talking about how there was a unicorn at her house hours later. That’s a party surprise I think will be hard to beat! Thank you for such an amazing experience!

Loren

Karen is so good with the kids, nothing was too hard for her. She made sure all the kids had a chance to interact with Alvin, even the ones who were too scared to ride. Alvin was so patient with all the kids wanting to brush and pet him. It was just such a lovely atmosphere, I’d highly recommend Posh Pony to anyone.

Bronwyn

We had so much fun at Posh Pony. The boys (4.5ys and 6.5ys) cannot wait to go again. They keep asking us when are we going next 🙂
It’s really nice to see them being so excited about the animals and the whole experience.
They have already picked out the 4 activities they would like to do with Karen,the dogs and the pony at their next session.

Barbara

Thanks to Karen at Posh Pony. My son had his very first riding lesson on Saturday and absolutely loved it. She was so kind and patient and it was the perfect intro. He cant wait for his next lesson.

First time at Posh Pony with 4 school friends this morning, and boy what a treat it was! Karen is the utmost professional, and Alvin was an absolute delight! The girls had a wonderful time doing activities with Alvin and having a ride as part of their Pony Party. Highly recommend for an educational and fun experience.
