Too hot to trot!

Phew, it’s too hot to trot for the ponies in this “Fabruary” weather.

There’s a winter heatwave in England with the hottest February ever recorded this week. Contrast that with the “Beast from the East” that we had last year.

It’s tough for the Shetland ponies in the winter heat, as they still have their thick winter coats. See how they are coping in this “Fabruary” weather.

We’re so excited to be preparing for another season of pony fun! The ponies and team are getting ready to welcome you all at weekends and holidays from 2 March 2019.
