Foal Handling

The Centre will soon be welcoming this year's new foals, following the Autumn Gathering.

If you would like to watch the foals being handled, or have a go at handling yourself, the event will take place between 9th and 20th November from 9.30 am until 4.00 pm.

The day will begin with an introduction to the work of The Moorland Mousie Trust and the Exmoor Pony Centre, followed by a briefing on what to expect of the day. Then you will be introduced to the foals you will be handling. This will take place in small groups using skills and techniques that can be drawn on in many areas of equestrianism.

Spaces are limited so if you are keen to have a hands-on experience with young Exmoor pony foal, be sure to book early. The cost is £50 per participant and includes lunch.

Please note that participants should have a basic knowledge of equine behaviour and the minimum age limit is 16 years old.

However, we welcome spectators and there is no charge to come and watch the foal handling taking place.

 For more information please email or call us (01398 323093) for a leaflet.
