We wanted to share these lovely photos and say a huge congratulations to Poppy and our beautiful pony Inca.
The talented duo won Reserve Champion and came first in the Cradle Stakes Working Hunter class at this year’s Royal Cornwall Show.
The little Dartmoor Hill Pony was completely unhandled when he arrived at the Sanctuary ten years ago – saved from slaughter at a Devon sale.
After months of gentle handling, rehabilitation and training he’s now the beloved pony of youngsters Poppy (5) and Matthew (7) Dayment.
Their mum Sarah, from South Brent in Devon, said: “He’s been a brilliant first pony and the children love riding him.”
Inca really has found his calling…and these pictures show just how clever and willing these little ponies can be.
