Tickets, which are on sale now, are $18, $35 and $75. Thanks to WRAL-TV and Fox 50, kids 12 and under will get half price tickets on regular priced $18 and $35 seats. They must be accompanied by an adult with a ticket. Click here for more information.

    Honestly, I never wanted a pony. I wanted to take riding lessons really badly but my mom always said it was an expensive activity and she let me have 1 lesson and then nixed that. :) I would LOVE to win those tickets though!

    Yes I love the ponies. Wished for a regular size horse and horse farm too. Guess my genie lamp was empty on wishes that year.

    I love horses but my mother has a fear of them, so I knew asking for a pony would not work. However, I still would have liked to have one!

    I grew up on a farm so I never wanted a pony...I always had horses! Now I cannot wait for my 5 month old to get a little bigger so we can get him a horse!

    Yes - I wanted a pony! What a great adventure that would have been. My kids love to visit them.

    I myself never fancied myself with a pony, but boy does my little girl. We took her to the State Fair this year for the first time and she would have been content to stay and watch the horse shows all day.

    Never wished for a pony but remember my first ride on a horse and it was awesome!

    Yes I wished for a pony when I was about six. I got a Shetland pony for my birthday that year. However, the pony was mean, liked to bite and kick. I think he stayed at my house for about a week when my mom said enough and sold it. It wasn't until I was 12 that I got another horse. Careful what you wish for cause it might not be what you think it will be....

    I wished for a pony...are there any kids who don't?

    Wished for a pony and got one. But I didn't wish for the work that comes with caring for it.
