Children ride high in half-term pony week

Children were invited to groom and ride cute ponies during four days of half-term fun at a home for abandoned animals.

The creatures at Two Oaks Pony Sanctuary in Darr’s Lane, Northchurch, are often malnourished or mistreated when found by owner Carol Houlihan. She then helps nurse them back into good health.

The centre is now home to 13 ponies and two horses as well as 70 chickens, two pigs and other animals. .
