Over the years from 1957 to 1978, we had the pleasure of many Shalbourne Ponies.
Marguerite de Beaumont, author, poet, founder of the girl Guide movement and the breeder of Shalbourne Ponies and Hacks.
We had many youngsters at weaning and brought them on to make lovely family ponies, successful in showing, jumping, Pony Club etc.
