Pony Party Ideas: Snack Recipes
Horse theme snacks and ideas for a pony birthday party.
Having a pony party? Horse around with this idea: blend a few of your favorite snack
ingredients to make a pony party snack mix that matches your theme. Serve these fun
mixes in waffle cones or colorful ice cream cones for a portable treat. For a carousel
Horse party, try popcorn bags. For a barnyard party, try a bushel basket. For just
about any Horse party, serve up the party snacks in buckets or feedbags.

Here are some party snack mix ideas for your cowboy party, pink cowgirl party,
Kentucky derby party, or a Western party:

  • Be the apple of her eye with candied apples. All horses love apples, so make
    your own candy applies using your microwave. The Back To Basics Microwave
    Gourmet Apple Dipper holds one 14-oz bag or caramels or 12-oz bag of
    chocolate chips. Try Wilton meltable candies as well and dip into peanuts,
    jimmies or other candy sprinkles For a festive touch.

  • Start bailing hay with Mini Hay Bale Snacks. For a healthier snack option,
    choose Frosted Mini-Wheats by Kellogg's and tell the kids To eat their mini bales
    of hay. For a Pink Cowgirl Party, choose Frosted Mini-Wheats (Strawberry
    Delight). These treats have 20% fiber!

  • Make Bugle Calls. Bugles make a fun snack for a Unicorn Party (they look like
    horns, as well as Kentucky Derby Party or Horse show party because bugles are
    part of the horse race experience.

  • Get happy with a "Happy Trails" Mix: If you're lucky enough to live near a  
    Trader Joes grocery store, then you can purchase a pack of 10 sealed trail mix
    packets sized perfectly for snacks or favors. The great thing about these
    packets is that they have no writing on the packaging, so you can affix a sticker
    label and print a custom message and decorate with Horse stamps or small
    stickers. Alternatively, make your own trail mix and serve in mini buckets. Here's
    a message with lyrics from "Happy Trails" by Dale Evans Rogers.

    "Happy Trails" Mix
    "Some trails are happy ones,
    Others are blue.
    It's the way you ride the trail that counts,
    Here's a happy one For you."

  • How To Make a Classic Trail Mix: Traditional trail mix has a blend of nuts,
    unsalted almonds with roasted cashews or peanuts and something sweet. Try
    raisins or other dried fruit such as cranberries, dried pineapple or unsweetened
    coconut shreds. In combo you get a nutty chewy texture. Then For a colorful
    splash add a few scoops of candy coated chocolate. Experiment. Blend a few of
    your favorite snack ingredients to make a pony party snack mix that matches
    your theme. Here are some horsey party snack recipes to get you thinking.

  • Horse around with fun serving containers.  Get the party started by serving
    horsey party snacks in metal "feed" buckets. Try large galvanized buckets for
    drinks, medium ones for utensils, and small buckets for horse party favors. Party-
    goers will appreciate a horsey themed lunch in a bucket (a sandwich and apple
    with a bandanna napkin). Personalize buckets with a Sharpie (they write on
    metal) or decorate them with horse stickers. Try these fun containers to
    enhance your party food and add to the pony party theme:

  • Get out the wheel barrow for a barnyard horse party to serve drinks. This
    gives a fun feel to your theme (as long as the wheel barrow is clean).

  • Chips are more fun when inserted into a burlap sack "feed bag" for a
    barnyard party. Use a Sharpie to write "feed bag." Or find a bushel
    basket to display snacks.

  • For a unicorn party, serve party snacks in waffle cones or colorful ice
    cream cones for a portable treat. Waffle cones look like unicorn horns, of

  • Pair popcorn bags with colorful party snack mixes to give a carnival feel to
    a carousel or Circus Horse party.

  • Serve party sweets in upturned mini plastic cowboy hats or plastic jockey
    helmets. Choose larger hats for chips. Or just dust off any cowboy hat or
    equestrian helmet and insert a bowl.

  • After you're done creating your birthday cake, use that horse-shoe pan
    for chips, trail mix, licorice wheels or other sweets.

  • Sew a burlap sack and use a Sharpie to write feed bag. Use the container
    for popcorn or your favorite chips.

  • Use galvanized buckets instead of coolers for the drinks. Or use them to
    serve up snacks. They work great for popcorn, too!
