Pancake Day

A surprising number of hardy families braved the bitterly cold weather to visit the Pony Centre on Pancake Day, our first Open Day of the year.

We were particularly pleased to see two intrepid ladies who travelled all the way from Northampton to see the ponies, having found us via the Exmoor Park website.

The riding ponies were back from their winter holidays, ready to meet their admiring public and looking forward to being stroked and petted.

Despite the chill wind, it wasn't long before the crowds arrived and the Green Room was filled with shivering people coming in to get warm and enjoy hot drinks, cakes and pancakes.

The pancakes, with a choice of fillings, were particularly popular and by the end of the day we had sold out.

A good day all round and an excellent start to the year. A big thank you to everyone who came and supported us.

  2. What a great idea to have Pancake Day in this way! It sounded like a whole day of fun in the Green Room and Tickles for the Ponies ha! Lovely to read of the success - thanks for sharing.
