Conservationists at Stone Circle Livery

Frances Clayton, who is the Communications Manager for Kent Downs AONB (Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty) organised a visit to Stone Circle Livery for a group of professional conservationists

The group of mostly Conservation managers from UK Wildlife Trusts and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds, were looking at use of ponies on conservation sites for grazing. They arrived from all over country incl Sussex, Devon, Northumberland and Southport. The pictures show the group discussing the land and pasture standards as well as the benefits of ponies as conservation grazers after taking a full walk around.

Stone Circle Livery was in the Scilly Isles recently where they use Shetland Ponies as conservation grazers. Pictures show the ponies and the sign explaining the conservation grazing programme.
