If you’re a fan of wildlife – ponies in particular – then a visit to The New Forest is an absolute must. Created in 1079 by William the Conqueror as a hunting area, it’s now home to around 5,000 ‘wild’ ponies. All of the ponies found in the forest are wild in the sense they can roam freely. It is the animals’ grazing which helps to keep the New Forest’s landscape and rare species which you can enjoy today!
