|Our ponies are used as conservation grazers for the National Trust|
We believe it is important for the foals to grow into confident and happy ponies suitable for long term careers. The foals are handled a couple of weeks after weaning once they have settled. Most foals are quite independent even at this young age, but are very quick to learn.
We use natural horsemanship techniques, such as positive reinforcement. After the initial training the foals get turned out onto good pasture on our farm in a herd environment to mature.
We use the prefix Blackator, after the Dartmoor Tor above our farm.
