New Forest Stallion Turnout Areas 2018
Each year pedigree New Forest stallions are released onto the Open Forest to run with the free-roaming mares and sire the next generation of New Forest pony. The stallions are carefully selected by the Verderer’s of the New Forest, the Commoners’ Defence Association and the New Forest Pony Breeding & Cattle Society. Only approved stallions are permitted to run with the mares to breed, and do so for only several weeks each year.
This year the stallions are released on Monday 14th May until Monday 18th June and must be removed from the Forest by Monday 25th June 2018.
