Seattle Pony Party is a dream come true for owner Eric Johnson and his daugher Kierney.


kids camp

Eric Johnson, PhD, left a science research career in physics and oceanography to pursue a life outside the office. He dreamed of combining his love of animals, the outdoors and children's smiles into one package. Seattle Pony Party is the dawn of that dream.

After the devastating loss of one of his daughters to cancer in '97 Eric uses Seattle Pony Party to bring remarkable memories and joy into the lives of those we touch.

Eric and the team at Seattle Pony Party - and let's not forget the Ponies - look forward to being part of making your children's dreams come true.
