More Than Ponies

More Than Ponies (MTP) is an artist-led programme of contemporary art projects, performances and interventions. Reimagining and reanimating the New Forest, MTP investigates the many unexpected stories, histories, practices and ecologies of this unique area. An occasional programme that explores ideas of people and place, MTP generate artworks for and about the diverse populations of the New Forest, from tourists and residents to birds and four-legged beasts. Like the animals that live here, MTP is roaming, moving continuously across multiple sites and venues. We aim to look beyond the infamous ponies to discover what makes this such a resonant place today.
