Ponies With No Future Transformed to Perfect Partners
Most of our ponies were donated to us because they had been written off as dangerous, difficult and disobedient. Scared, often in pain and unsure of their place in the world, they simply had lost trust in people. We take our time - sometimes even years, to help our ponies to rebuild their respect and trust of people so that we can help them to overcome their fears.
All the ponies are highly trained so that they are calm and confident enough to work with even the most vulnerable children. Through our Youth Development Programme, they help young people with mental health problems, special educational needs and other complex needs.
Conker the Exmoor Pony
"When I came to Think Like a Pony, things were different here. Calmer, slower and easier to make sense of. My confidence grew, which made me braver and happier. I am now a very experienced pony and enjoy helping nervous riders find their confidence, just like I found mine."
