Once upon a time there was a farmer in South Florida who bought a pony for his children to ride, learn from and care for in their free time. The children enjoyed the pony so much that he bought a second. One day a lady wanted to rent the ponies for her children for a special occasion and a 64 year old business was born. For sale is a pony rental business featuring 6- 100% certified "Kids Safe" ponies that the owner wants to sell as a group as they have been together, some for 7 years, the rest 15 years. This family of ponies is ready to go complete with all marketing, tack and transportation, just add grass or feed. They service all of Palm Beach, Martin, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Pricing is determined by travel distance, duration of the event and theme extras. All events are chaperoned by one attendant. Pony maintenance is minimal and vet visits are twice a year for shots.
Continued Consultation as well as Ranch Management and Equine Training and Management is available from current owner.
Necessary for this business is enough space for the 6 ponies, a safe and secure area for them to live, run and sleep. A barn or paddick is helpful during bad weather. If pasture is available then the food expense is down to near $0.00. The current ranch manager and pony handler may be available to new owner after successful meeting between all parties.
Growth potential can be maximized through a more aggressive on line presents and utilizing all available social media. The growth of housing, population and commercial buildings in S. Florida is unprecedented in modern times and ranks 3rd in the state and overall S. Florida ranks 4th in the country. More homes translates into more families which in turn produces more children and what child wouldn't love to snuggle and ride a pony. This is a business that currently pays for the expenses of owning these precious ponies. A great learning experience for children eager to explore the equine world, with pony ownership bringing on a whole host of responsibilities, chores and caring not necessarily associated with "normal" child rearing these days. Otherwise a small amount of additional marketing and aggressive exposure to social media will produce increased income and potential for growth.
