April Newsletter

May half term Activity Day will take place on Thursday 28th from 12:00 till 3:00; pony rides and grooming, activities for children and refreshments for all will be available so come along and support our local rare breed.

If you wish to arrange moorland rides or Taster sessions during the May half-term, please book well in advance to guarantee you get a place. Note that Taster sessions take place under cover, whatever the weather!

Our Easter Open Day was a great success in lovely sunshine, adults as well as children enjoying pony rides and enthusiastic youngsters helping to groom a muddy pony; the same pony, Tom, met lots of friends at South Molton Wildlife Day.

The herd of Exmoor pony mares that travelled to the Czech Republic were joined in early April by a stallion on their new 99 acre home, reclaiming overgrown land. The local people seem to be thrilled with their new neighbours and we look forward to hearing news of offspring of this newly created herd in 2016.

Recently some new volunteers have joined us; we are very grateful for the extra help they provide and new friendly faces at the Centre. If you think you could help us in any way, whether by mucking out or by holding a fund-raising event, please do get in touch on 01398 323093 or via
