Hi, I'm Shelley, founder of BMPR. 

A lifelong pony owner BMPR has been my life since founded in April 2014. I eat, sleep & breath our ponies & organisation as I'm pretty much the sole day to day pony carer, welfare officer, admin & driving force behind the charity.

In 2017 I was lucky to be given the opportunity to study with The Horse Trust & qualified as one of the U.K's only 17 Equine Legislation, Welfare & Field Skills - Field Officers through Lantra Awards in 2019. 

I work full time for the charity on a 100% voluntary basis

The ponies that we help are my life & all part of the family & there's nothing more rewarding than helping them flourish & being part of their bright new futures.


Hi, I'm Harley, co-founder of BMPR.

I started my relationship with horses as a 10 year old & 17 years later they are still very much my life. After leaving school in 2012 I pursued a career within the equine sector but sadly due to a back injury I had to put these dreams aside & moved back to the South East to complete a degree in Psychology whilst still playing an active part within the charity as a Trustee, However over the last year I have been spending more time back in Cornwall in a more hands on role, particularly helping to advance some of our current & past residents into a ridden career. I love to watch our residents grow in confidence & feel so privileged to be part of their bright & positive futures.
