Their main work focuses on providing a future for the excess foals that are removed from the moor each year during the annual pony herd gathering.
Presenting the cheque to Kirsty Urion on Weds 8th May , Samia had the chance to meet Almond and Tom who are regular visitors to local schools and care homes “Exmoor ponies provide locals and visitors to the area with a unique sight and experience, these beautiful animals graciously welcome us onto their moorland home. We haven't donated to an animal charity yet but felt it was important to recognise the work the Exmoor Pony Centre carry out, caring for the animals in such a sympathetic and sustainable manner to help them have the best possible lives in our countryside and maintain the breed for years to come “ Kirsty Urion who accepted the cheque on behalf of the Exmoor Pony Centre said “ Thank you so much, this is a really unexpected and wonderful amount and will go a long way to help us here at the centre with feeds and fencing and looking after the ponies “
