The charity works with pony keepers and various interested parties to raise the profile of the pony and its special qualities. The work is increasingly important as these ponies are threatened with numbers falling annually.

There is a purpose built centre that opens for visits and hosts a number of events. 7 ponies are based there and are used as positive ambassadors, especially in the Ponies Inspiring People programme, which supports young people with a variety of difficulties. The programme has been widely recognised for its effectiveness.

5 of the ponies are available for adoption, which helps to provide for their upkeep.

Feral ponies are also handled at the centre which increases their value. The charity also finds homes for ponies and sends a number for conservation grazing.

There are strong links with Bellever and the charity provides free guided walks for any group that applies.

The volunteer team are very devoted to the work of the charity and always welcome newcomers.
