The Benefits Of Welsh Ponies Grazing On The Coastal Path In Wales

Grazing the semi-natural habitats is often essential to keep them in good condition. On many sites that are managed, the appropriate animals were not always available to do the job

This was a common problem so the National Park Authority responded by instigating and co-ordinating the Pembrokeshire Grazing Network, which is now one of the longest running projects of its type in Wales

Many habitats require grazing in order to be in good condition for wildlife. But the decline of traditional grazing has led to many habitats becoming overgrown with gorse, bracken and bramble, which you may have had to fight your way through on the Coast Path

Ponies are great at coastal grazing and can be seen at work in several locations. The main source of ponies in North Pembrokeshire is a local farmer and breeder of Welsh Mountain Ponies, Huw Davies

The National Park Authority work very closely with partners and land owners to ensure that potential problems of livestock on the coast and walkers do not arise
