Balmoral Castle & Estate Balmoral Estates, AB35 5 Ballater, Aberdeenshire  (map)

This is a shared event with Fell Pony North Scotland Group.

Mrs Sylvia Ormiston, Equine Manager to HM The Queen, and her team will take us through the step-by-step process of training the Fell and Highland ponies to wear the specialised harness and saddles for carrying deer and panniers for their work on the estate. This will, of course, be applicable to training Eriskay ponies to carry creels with their specialist pad and saddle.

Following lunch, which can be purchased in the visitor centre restaurant, we will have a guided tour of the Highland pony stud with a talk on their breeding plan and selection process.

Numbers limited, society members and guests only.

Places must be pre-booked, for security reasons anyone arriving without booking will not be admitted. For further details of times, entry arrangements and to book a place contact Ruth McMinn.
