Horse Arc

After its great success at Countryfile Live, being used by our Highland Cattle, it has been moved to the park. ‘Developed in co-operation with Equine Scientists and the National Trust, Horse Arcs are loved by horses and are becoming the must have field shelter for horse owners.’ - Horse Arc The Arc is helping to keep our Exmoor Ponies and their foals warm and dry in the cold weather!

Say ‘hello’ to Inspiration

We've just welcomed a new addition to the Rare Breeds Walkway – a steel white bull, which towers over its paddock-mates, standing at 3.3 metres tall. The steel sculpture, named ‘Inspiration’ after one of the real-life White Park bulls here at the Park, is a celebration of the life and work of Adam’s father, Joe Henson, founder of the Park and well-known in the farming community for his work with rare breed farm animals. ‘Inspiration’ was designed and created by artist and artisan, Dave Danson-Hill and is a result of 6 long months of hard work. Look out for Inspiration when you visit us... you'll be able to spot him...
