The Moorland Mousie Trust is a small, local charity founded in 2000 by Val Sherwin and Sue Wingate. The trust was named after the Moorland Mousie books written by Golden Gorse, the pseudonym of Muriel Wace.
Our primary aim at The Moorland Mousie Trust is to promote and protect the endangered rare-breed Exmoor pony. Our main work focuses on providing a future for the excess foals that are removed from the moor each year during the annual pony herd gathering.
Staff and volunteers work with each foal, using natural horsemanship techniques, to familiarise the youngsters with human handling, wearing a headcollar and being led. After completing 'foal school' we look for a new home for them either with a foster home or on a conservation grazing scheme.
Whilst in our care all foals are wormed and the colt foals are castrated.
To date the charity has helped secure the future of over 500 Exmoor ponies.
We need your help so we can continue to support the ponies already in our care and future ponies that will be under our care.
Thank you for your support and good luck!
