Our site at Bellever has a Higher-Level Stewardship and Educational Access Agreement with Natural England and a tenancy agreement with Forestry England. This is where we combine supporting pony keepers with demonstrating the benefits of ponies as grazing experts. Several farmers enjoy free grazing, and we care for as many as 30 ponies at a time from several farmers. The herd helps keep archaeological sites clear, making a huge impact on 450 hectares of vegetation and opening up the land for more species to flourish. This is what our visitors enjoy, and it’s magical.
