Half Term Pony Fun – Nutmeg and Shrimp

NUTMEG – dark bay Exmoor This beautiful girl joined the trekking centre after her previous  owner popped in to ask if we would be interested in a pony they had that was in a field and doing no work. I agreed to give her a try and the first thing we did on her arrival […]
