Gathering the Anchor Herd on Winsford Hill

The Anchor Herd Gathering took place on October 20th.

Riders on horses, ponies, quad bikes and  motor cycles, including Linzi, Kestra and others from the Pony Centre riding our own Exmoor ponies, met at Comer's Gate for briefing before beginning the roundup.

The ponies were gathered off Winsford Hill and taken along the road to Mounsey Gate where they were held temporarily in a field before being driven down the lane, past the Exmoor Pony Centre, to Mounsey Farm at Ashwick to await inspection by the Exmoor Pony Society.

Helpers and onlookers were treated to hot sausage rolls, flapjacks and drinks by owners Emma and David Wallace.
