“Had a great time on my trail rides with Amanda. She is knowledgeable, safe and strives to make it an enjoyable experience which it always is and the horses are great.

I leased a horse from Joyce Chartier for a week for the Osceola Trail Ride and had an incredible time. We spoke on the phone about my riding experience and the horses I had ridden with Amanda and we met at the event. Not only did she choose the perfect horse for me (Promise) but she introduced me around to many people, showed me the ropes, got me settled. I had an amazing week. Definitely want to do it next year. Thanks Joyce:)” JM

“Joyce Chartier is the real deal and she gets my seal of recommendation. She has great horses for a variety of uses. An all around great gal and knowledgeable outfitter.” MM

 I’ll second that! Joyce is great….has really nice horses…is a knowledgeable coach/instructor ….able to transport horses…evaluate horses for buyers, etc….I’ve spent MY LIFE on horses…and I value her input and generally look to her for advice. Can’t say enough good things about “Choyce, LLC”  ” DB

“Hi Miss Joyce, how have you been? It’s been a while. I’ve been thinking about you.. Actually I’ve been thinking about horses a lot lately and when I think horses I think of my time on your farm. I hope everything is going well for you. I don’t think I ever told you this but the months I spent on that farm were the best months of my life. It changed me in so many ways and as much as I wish I could had done things differently I wouldn’t give the time I spent there up for anything. I just wanted to say thank you for that.” SM


“I’m a student at Choyce and have been for a little over a year now. I rode for two years prior to coming to Choyce and I didn’t excel or do a whole lot at my other barns. I was bored and gave up riding for a long time. When I found Choyce I was taken right on board and learned a lot from Joyce.” RL

“Joyce Chartier moved my horse and pot belly pig. She is great and gave me a good price too” :-) JM

“I have worked with Joyce and She has managed jobs for me, making sure all is done timely and professionally.”

“Everyone was a half hour late so Birthday Girl got the unicorn to herself for 45 minutes!  Dream come true!  She said it was her favorite party of her birthday.  Thank u so much.” GB

“I wanted to thank you and your staff for the wonderful time my daughter and her friends had today.  We will definitely use you again and recommend you to our friends.  Your staff were amazing.” VM


“I’ll tell Hannah I spoke to you. She will be 11 on the 16th. Can’t believe it. I think she was just 4 when she started lessons with you. But she really first rode Penny at B&A when she was 16 months old. We had to fight to get her off. LOL! She hasn’t changed. “LM

“Joyce has an awesome ability with horses and kids. She always has an upbeat attitude and spirit!” JP

“I have the utmost respect and admiration for Joyce’s knowledge of horses, her values, her work ethic, and for the kind of person she is.” MA


“Joyce has wonderful horses for any level rider. I stay behind and she takes my girls for trail rides. They come back:) lol excited and full of stories. Asking, when can we come back…I love it! Thanks Joyce.” JP

“Joyce rocks! She is a very hard working lady and all here horses are very well trained! She even has a horse for a greenhorn like me ;). ” CH


“Pony Pals wants to give a HUGE FIVE STAR to Joyce Chartier for transporting!! Joyce you were WONDERFUL, the ponies love you and you are so unbelievably reasonable and fair!! It was GREAT to finally meet a fellow Pony Pal Friend!! We will surely keep your contact and you WILL get anything we can send you!!”

“You know i look back at my barn family and think of how they were all there when i needed them the most! I miss them all so much!! just wish i never left… This barn is absolutely the best ever everyone there is a team …and they all work together to improve the person you are and to improve and accomplish the impossible things in life. The horses there are amazing! Through all the times I rode I learned something new and its all because of these people right here in this picture.. And no one NO ONE can replace Joyce as a trainer!” KS


“No one does better pony lessons, riding lessons or just trail riding than my fabulous and delightful friend Joyce. If you ever wanted to learn to ride, have your kids learn to ride or just take a beautiful trail ride or even a ride on the beach Joyce is the gal to to to!” ET

“Regarding Riding on Bobo….can’t tell you how awesome it was—I just can’t shut up about it. It was like a dream come true—maybe made so much sweeter waiting for it for so long. I just can’t believe I am lucky enough to do that once a week. I can’t wait to do it again…..I sound like a junkie, don’t I? :o)”

“Rockin’ parties for horse crazy kids! Best ponies around!”


“The highest caliber of staff and instruction are available for any age and any skill level; whether on the trails, during a private or group lesson, during day camps, etc. The entire process involved with each horse or pony for an activity …is available to all clients. I have personally enjoyed the experience of receiving Joyce’s riding instruction and I have taken a bit of a trail ride; I have also had the pleasure of attending a party experience with the ponies. I would encourage anyone to satisfy their equestrian needs with Choyce Party Ponies, Clown & Bounce. Simply put, there is no comparison when it comes to developing a relationship with a horse rather than just riding one. Whatever equestrian opportunity that you chose to partake in, your expectations will be exceeded, and will in turn make you a repeat client.”

“We’ve visited on a couple of trips to Florida and our daughter had a great time riding and “jumping”. They are fabulously kind and gracious.
Great people, great ponies, reasonable prices…… check it out!”
“They say that Christmas only comes but once a year. Not for me! I get to have Christmas once a week– when I get to go ride at Choyce. Awesome people, beautiful friendly horses, and the ability to live out my childhood dreams of riding—again and again and again. I feel like I’m 10 years old again and I’m still grinning like a fool even after 5 days since my first ride!”
“A little slice of heaven with beautiful horses, great ride instruction, and more! ” GR

This year, her second year competing in barrel racing and other speed events, she won a saddle in the pony division. This was due largely to an awesome little pony and and awesome trainers. I will be forever grateful for giving her the opportunity to proud of herself and see how persistence and hard work can pay off.” KK
