1 BIG (NOT a Pony!) Full Sized Golden Horned Unicorn
Tell us if you'd like the unicorn to be more natural (e.g. organic mane / tail favored by editorial shoots, weddings, and birthday parties with lots of boys attending) or "over the top" (e.g. extra ribbons and/or flowers added on).
2 Unicorn Attendants who lead the unicorn on its riding route or posing station for photos and assist with guest questions and safety.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Color is the Unicorn?
Our older XL size unicorns are larger in bone structure (e.g. draft horses) with white hair while our Royal Unicorn has a magnificent dappled white and gray coat and has a more refined, fanciful, bone structure. All of the unicorns are full grown horses that can carry up to 250 pounds in weight.
Can the Unicorn Dress To Match My Party?
If you wish for custom accessories (you provide) to be worn by your unicorn such as flowers, a neck wreath, or ribbons that were made to perfectly suit your party's theme we can work with you to have you give those items to the unicorn's attendants to integrate with the unicorn's appearance or, alternately, to have you mail them to us before your party so that we can trouble shoot them and figure out how to add them to the unicorn for the best possible photos.
Can The Unicorn Do Tricks?
Yes, our Royal Unicorn has been trained to do some adorable tricks including giving hugs on cue! Our older XL (all white) unicorns do not do tricks but still enjoy giving rides and posing for photos.
Can I Feed It?
Unicorn feeding is at the discretion of its attendants to ensure that they don't become too greedy for attention. All of our unicorns love to eat pieces of carrot, slices of (sweet) apples, and some even eat silly things like bananas or grapes! We try not to feed them things like sugar or cupcakes as it can ruin their teeth. They appreciate having access to fresh water to fill up their water buckets with while at your location.
Can I Hire You for a Film or Commercial Project?
Yes, you can hire our unicorns with their attendants for commercial, film, and TV projects requiring hero horse, stunt horse, or background horses subject to shot list approval. Some of our attendants are members of SAG-AFTRA. Film permits are required and are the responsibility and financial obligation of production to obtain from the city film and permit office that you are shooting in.
Can the unicorn carry a bride in to her reception or wedding?
Yes. Please indicate if you need a riding unicorn with saddle for a grand entrance as pre-training at the castle stable with the bride and her dress may be required to ensure a smooth celebration. Our unicorns are incredible for grand entrance grooms for proposals too!
What size do the unicorns come in?
Our unicorns are NOT ponies. They are full sized horses; our Royal Unicorn is approximately 5' tall at his back while our XL riding unicorns are even bigger. Our Royal Unicorn, is more refined in body type while our XL riding unicorns are draft horses with thicker bone structures.
Can the unicorns wander loose at my party for atmosphere?
Unfortunately as much as they'd love to wander over to the buffet... the unicorns must be under lead by a handler at all times.
Can the unicorns do rides inside my house?
No, as ballrooms (or living rooms) aren't typically designed for their weight, unicorns need to stay outside. The exception for indoor appearances is for trade show appearances with convention center approval and specialty spill friendly carpeting (for any accidental poop etc.) provided by client. Unicorns don't wear diapers. As a result we are not responsible for any accidents on carpet or any other form of ground or rented surface coverings.
What do guests do while they are waiting?
How are the unicorns trained?
I want the unicorn to be a surprise. How do I prevent my guests from seeing it before the party?
We recommend blocking off a 60'x16' parking spot on an adjacent street from your location (1 block away MAX) where the unicorn team can prepare the unicorn for your party without being seen. If you are doing this please provide us with a "parking address" in addition to your "venue address" so that we know which is which. They can then walk the unicorn around the block to your party to make a surprise appearance.
Where do the unicorns live?
When not visiting parties our unicorns live in a large pasture setting where they can play, sunbathe, and relax. They love their attendants who create games for them to play for fun and are doted on with daily housekeeping, plenty of brushing, fresh food and water, and blankets for when it gets cold. Should they need it they have immediate access to human experts for veterinary, holistic nutrition, massage, hoof, chiropractic, acupuncture, behavioral communication, and other specialty care.
Can the Unicorn Rear on Cue?
No. That’s dangerous. We do NOT train our unicorns to rear.
All of our unicorns are trained with positive reinforcement methods such as praise and treats. We spend months to years getting each unicorn ready to experience parties by patiently teaching them to be confident around things like noise, bubbles, tutus, cars, and decorations.
What happens if it poops?
We recommend keeping our unicorns outside on a grass or dirt surface for this reason. If the unicorn poops then one of the attendants will scoop it up with a rake or shovel and a bucket to dispose of away from your guests.
What do the attendants wear?
The Royal Unicorn team arrives in custom medieval fantasy costumes that match the unicorn or black clothing. The XL Unicorn team arrives in their choice of black tuxedos or Indian inspired tunics - if you prefer one over the other let us know when booking.
Are riding helmets provided?
Yes, rental riding helmets are provided for Royal Unicorn packages. They are not provided for XL Unicorn packages.
Can I ride it on the beach?
Yes, but only with a permit from the beach.
Who can ride a unicorn?
Ages 3+ with a signed equestrian release waiver. A waiver is required for any riders or people physically sitting ON the unicorn. We can either send them to you before the party to print and complete or bring them with us.
