The Unicorn Experience gives youngsters the chance to meet Pumpkin the magical pony/unicorn

Sandy Trimmer, who is also a talented photographer, started The Unicorn Experience after she did a photo-shoot for her own daughter Amy.

Now, with help from pony Pumpkin, she is putting smiles on plenty of little faces around the Falkirk area and capturing the magical moments on film for all time.

Sandy said: “I have worked in school nurseries and day nurseries for several years and love watching children gain self-confidence, learn through play and particularly enjoy seeing how endless a child’s imagination is.”

When children arrive for their Unicorn Experience they get acquainted with Pumpkin as a pony, then make a wish for him to become a unicorn and – thanks to the addition of a horn – he becomes one in the blink of an eye.
