Do I have to pay for the pony ride ?
If your kid is 8 (or under), the entrance include the first pony ride route. If you want to do a second (or a third one), you'll have to pay 6€ the tour. Unfortunately, if your kid is 9 and more, you can't do the pony ride (our ponies are Shetland so very small animals).

We have over 200 animals of many different species on a 12 hectare park.
Among them are endangered species such as the Aurochs, Girgentana goats, Macau macaws, and much more.
You can also go to the encounter of quite unusual animals like woolly pigs, wallabys, sheep racka, as well as more common animals like dwarf goats, ponies, chickens...
