Owning one Dales Pony invariably leads to another.....those were the first words we heard when we spoke of buyng our first Dales! It was true.
Highclose is based in East Lancashire, on the edge of Burnley, easily accessed from the M65.
It is rare to see us showing these days, but we are passionate about these animals and aim to breed quality, useful, true to type ponies. All our ponies are kept as naturally as possible and remain unshod if not ridden and are fed on home-produced hay or haylage.
It's not all about ponies!
We are also a family farm, running a flock of breeding sheep and rearing young cattle.
In 2016, a small flock of Dutch Spotted Sheep, very new to this country were introduced to run alongside a pedigree Lleyn flock. Lleyn numbers have now been reduced and the Spotties are increasing. See the Highclose Sheep page for more information.
We also offer a garden and site maintenance service locally, all year round. Clients include private gardens and local businesses who also need their carparks and grounds kept neat and tidy. Contact Michael on 07979 596714 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
