Our pony and forest walk through the Loonse and Drunense Dunes is not so suitable with a pram. We walk through the forest and the dunes, these paths are not paved, but also very narrow in some parts. We have lightweight wheelbarrows on the farm with hard tires that you can use as a baby carriage for the smallest kids.

Will a children's party continue in bad weather?
Even in bad weather, a children's party will continue as usual. We only reschedule if there is a thick layer of snow or a heavy storm. With worse weather, we can celebrate everything inside and still make it an unforgettable children's party!

Can children under the age of 2 come too?
Yes, even the little ones are welcome to watch their older brother or sister brush the pony and then walk on its back. Of course, parents and caregivers should keep an eye on their child(ren).
