Horse of the Year Show

Cadbury & Linzi

Cadbury is now 5 years old and will be at this year's Horse of the Year Show for the third year running.

He will be in the interactive area with staff and volunteers between 4th and 9th October, so if you are planning a visit up there, please go along and say hello.
Cadbury is a classic example of what The Moorland Mousie Trust aims to achieve.

He came to us as a weaned foal, number 55, from Herd 4 from the Dunkery/Porlock area of Exmoor, and spent his first three years eating his way through Northumberland on one of our grazing schemes. Here, he was lightly backed before travelling to his first Horse of the Year Show in 2009.

Since then he has lived with Linzi in North Devon, in company with other Exmoors. His beautiful behaviour and kind nature has earned him many adoring fans. At 12.3hh, he is well up to height and is a lovely chunky comfortable ride. He is also well-known for his habit of sitting on his bottom like a teddy bear!

This will be his last Horse of theYear Show and later this year he will be returning to his home ground on Exmoor to take up residence in a permanent foster home.
