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 Late Avril Darnton

Sad News - Past President and breeder of the Rodlease ponies - Miss Avril Darnton passed away on Tuesday 31stOct. She will be greatly missed having been a staunch supporter of the breed for so many years. Her homebred mare Rodlease Fiesta was Supreme Champion at the Breed Show on three separate occasions - twice in hand and once under saddle. This picture was taken on the last occasion that Avril was able to attend her favourite show - the NPS championships at Malvern - waiting for Fiesta’s grand daughter  Rodlease Jubilation to go back into the ring in for another Championship, along with her Norfolk terrier Tom in attendance. In later years she derived great pleasure from coffee in the garden with visits from her ponies.

Her funeral will take place on 21st November at St John the Baptist Church, Boldre at 12noon
