Snowdonia Horse Whisperer a Success.

Posted on | 0 Responses

Horse InsuranceBack in April we reported that a specialist Horse Whisperer, Barry Thomas,  had been enlisted to help tame the Carneddau ponies on Snowdonia.

The ponies were not used to human contact and their numbers had dwindled. It was hoped that taming the ponies would ensure the long term survival of the breed by increasing their value, giving farmers an incentive to breed them.

Now we are pleased to bring you the news that the horse whispering has been a success.   So much so that Barry’s efforts have be documented in four television episodes for on S4C.

The extent of the success will be revealed on the show but Barry has spoken to the  BBC about the experience, saying:
“It was amazing – when you get hold of a wild and untouched horse, you have to be so accurate with mannerisms and training because they will pick up on it.
“If we don’t raise the plight of these ponies, potentially we could lose the oldest breed in Britain and they could become extinct.”
