Discover Exmoor Ponies - 2017 workshops Sun 3 Sept: DISCOVERING EXMOOR PONIES Workshop with Dawn Westcott. Join us for an afternoon at the Exmoor Pony Project to meet Exmoor ponies and find out more about this very special, ancient native pony breed. The Exmoor pony type, their wonderful characteristics and behaviours and how positive, interactive, trust-based methods help to tame and train them. We’ll also look at how thoughtful management helps them to live more naturally, in herds, suiting their social, nutritional and physical needs. Dawn is author of best-sellers Wild Pony Whispering and Wild Stallion Whispering and her new book, Wild Herd Whispering, is published in October. Coffee, tea and cake provided. No handling involved. Robust footwear is advised - this is a working farm. Undercover areas, plenty of parking. Disabled access possible - please enquire. Advance booking only and places limited. Time: 2.30 - 5.30pm.Location: Holt Ball Farm, Exmoor National Park. Cost: £60 per person (child discounts available) with proceeds helping to fund the Exmoor Pony Project.

This is a private working farm as well as running the Exmoor Pony Project (Moorland Exmoor Foal Project), which involves considerable time and resource - so please bear with us regarding organising Wild Pony Whispering Workshop and event dates.
Exmoor is a fantastic place for equestrian artists to work - a sort of horse painter’s heaven - and local horse owners and Exmoor Pony specialists have been very, very welcoming. We hope to be back next year!”
