The sight of Suffolk Wildlife Trust ponies grazing at a beautiful heath or wetland is cherished by many. Whilst the ponies are wonderful to look at from a distance, we ask visitors to please remember these animals are unhandled and must not be fed or approached.
Our ponies have been specially selected to graze particular habitats based on their natural grazing characteristics as well as their temperament. Some sites can be too wet for cattle or sheep, or the quality of the grazing too poor to sustain them. Ponies fill an important gap in our conservation grazing regime, helping to maintain some of our most challenging Nature Reserves.
