May Newsletter

In an exciting partnership, the National Trust at Arlington Court have taken Almond and Bergerac to help them demonstrate how to put on a harness. As Almond is destined to be one of our trekking ponies, as well as making an appearance at HOYS, he will only stay there for this season when his place will be taken by another pony ready to learn a new role.

A generous donation from Pluss, the Social Enterprise that helps disabled people to find work, was recently given to our representative at Exeter Football Ground by Ben Bradshaw MP. This goes a small way to helping with our weekly costs but in an ideal world we need to raise about £350 per day to ensure that the charity can continue. Is there any way that you can help us?

One of our ponies will be putting in an appearance at Witheridge Fair on June 21st, along with some helpers so please come and support us there.

In Winsford Village Hall on the 6th July at 2.30pm the High Park Music School Orchestra will entertain you in an hour’s concert followed by a cream tea and the chance to meet an Exmoor Pony.  The band of children will be playing Saxophones, Clarinets and Flutes with a programme of jazz and pop music. Please get your tickets in advance from Winsford Village Shop.

Please look at our website for more ideas of how to support us, follow us on Facebook or Text MMTX22 £5 to 70070. Thank you.
