We can now supply recycling envelopes for ink cartridges etc through Recycle 4 Charity. Contact Rosemary for envelopes. We get £1 per cartridge - that soon adds up!
Dartmoor Hill Pony Association
Many of the ponies that we use for all our disabled driving (and riding) activities are from the Dartmoor Hill breed. These are the most fantastic ponies with wonderful natures. Gentle, strong, gutsy, beautiful paces - there’s nothing in the smaller pony world to beat them. They really need support though - they are vital for maintaining Dartmoor’s landscape and provide pleasure for visitors. But there is little general market for them and with indiscriminate breeding, too many foals are born.
To save them from suffering, many are simply shot each autumn, which is a tragedy. The solution is simple: contraceptives for the mares, Ponies on the Pill, but the Association urgently needs land to achieve this. Please take a look at their websiteand log on to sign the petition to allow a group of them to graze a piece of land where the results of the treatment can be properly assessed.

The Chariots of Fire Equestrian Centre now has a brilliant new surface in its indoor school. It is much smoother for the disabled carriages and both drivers and ponies love it - this is children from Calside School trying it out for the first time!
