The Trust has made annual contributions from funds raised generally, and more recently from The New Forest Visitor Gift Scheme for this proven measure to vastly reduce animal accidents on the open road of The New Forest.
Preventing Animal Accidents
The Trust pays an annual contribution towards the cost of reflective collars for New Forest Ponies and is actively involved in funding initiatives to reduce animal accidents on The New Forest.
Beaulieu Road Sale Yard
The Trust has a twenty five year lease held for the benefit of the New Forest Livestock Society, who run the sales at this purpose built handling facility for semi-feral ponies.
Small Grant Scheme
A fund of £8,000 is currently available for 2011 with grants of between £250 and £1,000, which specifically promote the conservation of the New Forest or provide education about this heritage site.
The Trust have made annual awards for the cost of keeping Stallions at New Park and other forest locations, as part of the project to limit the time the Stallions are out on the Forest with an aim to reduce overall numbers of foals and the time period in which they are born.
Publicity For Ponies
The Trust has actively supported initiatives to responsibly promote New Forest Ponies and the many attributes that they have from riding ponies, through to conservation grazing animals.
New Forest Community Media
The Trust have made several small grants to this project, which is locally based and locally biased. NFCM is an internet based local internet radio station, with a strong forest flavour.
Ferny Crofts Scouts Activity Centre
The Trust has made a grant, under its new small grants scheme, to help fund a dipping pond and other features for the education and enlightenment of young children at Ferny Crofts Scout Activity Centre.
