New Forest pony at Cadman's Pool
There are no longer any truly wild ponies left in Britain. There are ponies living in a semi-wild state. The population of ponies found in the New Forest has been 'improved' from time to time by cross-breeding, particularly with Arab stock. The 'wild' ponies are generally stocky, sturdy beasts, often with shaggy coats in order to withstand the bleak winters they encounter on the heaths where they live. However tame the animals may appear to be they still retain some wild characteristics, and feeding them will often have the added risk of exposing them to fast-moving cars, when they start coming to the roads to seek out humans to feed them.
