On 1st October 2011 between 10am and 2pm the Dartmoor Pony Training Centre will be hosting their annual Open Day at Moretonhampstead Riding Club’s arena next to the George V Sports Hall, the event will include clicker training demonstrations with the ponies and horse agility.
At the event will be the DPTC’s sponsor ponies Trixie and Leo ready to meet their sponsors as well as a selection of ponies currently available for re-homing. The Centre is currently overrun with ponies and so if you are thinking of homing a pony the Open Day is an excellent event to attend enabling you to meet prospective ponies and see them in action through demonstrations and workshops. At the event you can find out about the DPTC and how to re-home a pony from them as well as learn about the Dartmoor Hill Pony as a breed; there will be lots of people to answer any questions and offer advice on training.
The clicker training demonstrations will be 11am and 11.30am and this will be followed by a horse agility course where the DPTC ponies will have a go, people will be invited to try for themselves with a DPTC pony, the horse agility will start at 12.30pm.
The Open Day is being run separately from the very popular annual 5 day Semi-Feral Foal Handling course this year. Although fully booked for participants there are still a number of spaces available on this course for spectators which will run from 24th to 28th October in Widdecombe.
