Presentation Details:

Have you ever wondered about the lives of feral ponies? On a hill in Wales pony population management decreased, and the ponies formed more natural groups. There was a golden window of opportunity to follow these ponies; to watch, learn and record through film. Wales might feel wild, but it doesn’t have any true wild lands where ponies can become truly wild, and so the feral pony bubble burst. 

This presentation brings to you never before seen footage of the feral ponies in their native landscape, acting out their wild lives. It also brings to you the story of Felix and Co. Free-living ponies who got to retain some of their freedom in new lives as conservation grazing ponies, includIng some insights into clinical behavioural work with unhandled ponies, both fearful and/or formerly feral.
