The New Forest Pony ... a true all-rounder!
Intelligence, strength, calm temperament and versatility.
The most endearing quality of The New Forest pony is their inbred, gentle nature. Their calm temperament naturally recommends them as an excellent choice and an ideal mount for both children and adults. They have long been raced locally and are surprisingly fast, especially over rough terrain. They are suited to many competitive activities from Pony Club to polo, driving to dressage.Tthey are naturals at jumping and gymkhana and are successfully trained to carry handicapped riders.
All in all, the modern New Forest Pony is an exceptional all-rounder
with an endearing character, that has developed as a result of both its unique environment and strong association with the people who have been responsible for the development of the breed.
The NPS are organising a judges assessment day at Strecholt on 18th Feb
and we have been asked to provide ponies to represent the breed inhand or ridden or both. It is very short notice (through no fault of ours) but important that we put a New Forest forward
if we want judges to be educated in our breed!! We are looking for ponies in the Somerset area or within easy reach of Strecholt which is near Bridgewater Please contact me if you think you can help asap firstname.lastname@example.org
Membership Renewals are due before 31st.March 2017. Thank you.

“PoPo (or Valegro…as he's been particularly clever and we're off
to the British Dressage
Regional Finals at Wellington on 24th February!) on his way back to his field with his
dinner, after a good day at our riding club dressage on the Isle of Wight.” Anita Clare
