The Pony Express Ranch is located in the heart of the Valley of the Moon Wine Country. Here kids have the opportunity to engage in authentic, transformational equine experiences within a safe and healing environment. Our facilities include a large riding arena and a beautiful new barn all situated among the oaks with breath-taking views of Sonoma Valley.



The Pony Express has been providing services to Sonoma County children at Howarth Park in Santa Rosa for over 35 years. Every year, the hard-working kids and horses provide pony rides, riding lessons, and pony camps to over 14,000 children. All of the proceeds generated at Howarth Park goes towards our non-profit.

The Howarth Park pony corral is open from 11:00-5:00 every weekend beginning the first of February and running through the end of October. During the summer months (June 15-August 15), we are open to the public every day except Friday.
