Linzi and Kestra took Almond up to the Horse Of the Year Show at the NEC in October and showed him off to lots of appreciative horse lovers. There was plenty of interest in our local rare breed ponies and we expect numerous orders for goods from our shop to come in as a result, as well as some much-needed donations.
We also held a Celebrate Halloween event at the Centre so that children could come and have a pony ride, groom a pony and make some Halloween themed crafts. Local author Victoria Eveleigh attended and signed books for her admiring fans.
Make the build-up to Christmas more relaxed with some lovely events in December:
Sunday 7th December is Foals Open Day from 12:00 till 3:00.
Come and see how we gain the trust of the moor-bred foals that we take in each year.
