Smartie enjoys a spot of TV glory!

Smartie and George with Dru spent and enjoyable morning walking the Lychway at Bellever with Tony Robinson filming for a new series of Ancient Tracks for Channel 4. Tony was most taken with Smartie, but then aren’t we all. The Lychway is the ancient way of the dead, linking the parishes of Widecombe and Lydford. The route passes right through Bellever, so made an ideal spot to stop of and carry out some filming of our ponies grazing and to lead our pair of Dartmoor Ponies along part of the route. Both were very well behaved, considering how many times they had to do the same scene over and over again!!
