AUTHOR: Mike Read
The Spirit of New Forest Ponies
The Spirit of New Forest Ponies
  • Description

Established as a royal hunting preserve over 900 years ago, the New Forest has seen Commoners’ ‘rights of pasture’ since 1016. It was then that the first ponies were turned out onto the Forest. The New Forest Pony is a unique breed and one of its outstanding characteristics is its good-natured temperament.This, combined with its muscular frame, makes it an excellent riding pony and as such it has been exported widely around the world. But there is no better place to view the ponies than on their native heath, either in the shows like the New Forest & Hampshire County Show or within the special habitat of the New Forest National Park.

Renowned photographer Mike Read reveals the special ‘spirit’ of the ponies as he captures the showing classes, the annual round-ups (drifts), the only true remaining point-to-point race in Britain, held annually in December, and above all these lovely animals at their very best in the peerless landscape of the New Forest itself.

Mike Read is an established professional wildlife and landscape photographer, writer, lecturer and tour guide. His previous books for Halsgrove include the acclaimed New Forest Moods and Discover the New Forest, and he has also contributed to numerous other books, magazines and partworks.
