Meet Jack the miniature Shetland pony

Little ones can follow the trail of Jack Brock, the mischievous, miniature Shetland pony, throughout the Walled Garden. Discover what he’s been getting up to during his visit and follow the clues to find him…then finally discover Jack himself! Jack will be eagerly waiting in a petting pen in the Walled Garden to greet everyone and reward all ‘pony-detectives’ with a special book-mark and sticker.

Please note that although Jack will be in the Walled Garden every day during half term (25th May - 2nd June), his trail will only be running from Wednesday 29th May until Sunday 2nd June. 

Jack's story

Jack and his owner Ali Stearn have been visiting care homes voluntarily for over 9 years and more recently have been fundraising for dementia charities. He regularly goes into bedrooms and lifts to reach poorly patients and lift their spirits, and into schools as well. Jack and Ali also have an illustrative children’s book coming out in September all about his visits, and the positive impact he has on everyone he meets!
