Pony Rides

Let your kiddos channel their inner Fort Worth rodeo champion when they climb on board one of these sweet ponies. Cost is $5 per ride. Weight limit is 75 pounds.

Feeding time

It's one activity everyone can get in on, and that's feeding time! For $2 you can purchase an edible (for the animals) cone of petting zoo food and be the most popular human in the zoo.


Take a shot of just you or you with your besties and your favorite animal. They're always up for a selfie.
The Stock Show's petting zoo and pony rides are provided by Westland Ranch, a local company dedicated to providing safe and enjoyable experiences for Stock Show guests. Westland Ranch has operated the Stock Show's petting zoo and pony rides for 16 years.
