Conservation Grazing on Barton Common

New Forest ponies

We are pleased to welcome back two New Forest Ponies on Barton Common as they carry out important conservation work on this designated Site of Importance for Nature Conservation (SINC).


It is important to remember these Forester ponies are normally forest run stock and they are owned by a New Forester Commoner.


We ask that all visitors to Barton Common respect the ponies by not feeding them, by keeping dogs under control and to not approach the ponies.

If you have any concerns about the ponies please contact 01425 619120 or email
