Stallion Areas and Turnout Dates 2024


As with all livestock our strong advice to Forest visitors is to keep a good distance away from the stallions as they go about their duties and gather a herd.  In particular, we advise horse riders to avoid stallion areas.  Any equine entering their area will inevitably result in the stallion approaching to check if the newcomer is a threat to his herd, or should be encouraged to join it.  An entirely natural reaction, which can be intimidating to all but the most confident riders.

Additionally, with the pony herds inevitably running about more than usual, please ensure dogs are kept under close control and, unless they have 100% reliable recall, on a short lead.
