BASKING RIDGE, N.J. —  Children under age 13 and their parents will enjoy a morning at Lord Stirling Stable when staff, horses, and ponies celebrate the Pony Tea Party on Sunday, Aug. 18, from 10 a.m. to noon. The Party will take place at the Stable located at 256 South Maple Avenue in Basking Ridge.

The Pony Tea Party will include lead line pony rides for children; games; a tractor pulled hay ride; a pony themed story; and light refreshments including lemonade, and cake. Guests will also have the opportunity to meet Jesse James, also known as JJ the Pony, Lord Stirling Stable’s newest miniature horse, standing only 9 hands high.

Children should be old enough to sit up and hold onto a pony without assistance. Guests are invited to wear “fancy” tea party garb (feather boas, frilly hats, gloves, etc.). Guests are required to wear close-toed shoes for safety and comfort.
