The Welsh Pit Ponies Centre
Fforest Uchaf Farm is a working small holding and home to the Fforest Uchaf Horse and Pony Rehabilitation Centre & Pit Pony Sanctuary
Visitors will be guided for a quiet walk in the high pastures with a magnificent panoramic backdrop of the Taff Valley and on clear days the Brecon Beacons in the distance to take time out and meet the ponies, hear their stories and see them enjoying their new life grazing and playing in the sun, your guide will take you by the ponds and walk you just touching the woodland, a home of rare and diverse wildlife that share the Farm with us.
Perhaps taking time out to stop by the ponds and watch the life going on underwater quiet visitors may be treated to seeing the wild Buzzards soaring on the thermals that rise from the Valley floor below. For those interested in the Welsh Heritage of Pit Ponies we will explain the relationship between our locality and coal mining.
You will have a chance to meet the last few Welsh Pit Ponies
