Spread a little magic this Christmas with Bransby Horses’ Pudding the Shetland pony

Building on the amazing success of their first children’s storybook, Bransby Horses are delighted to announce their second is on sale in time for Christmas.

Pudding’s Picnic Panic, builds on the educational style tale by teaching readers about the importance of not feeding horses you don’t know through a beautifully illustrated rhyming storybook.

“Marvellous. A great story for young children at Christmas to teach them about kindness and compassion.” Daniel, Parent

The second book from Bransby Horses follows on from Pudding’s Christmas Miracle which tells the story of a Shetland pony who receives a special visit after being left all alone at Christmas time. It was a huge hit when it launched in 2020, selling over 2,500 copies.

“My little one was enthralled by the rhyming story and the beautiful illustrations. As a result, Pudding has become a firm-favourite in our Christmas story repertoire!” Siobhan, Parent

And as a special Christmas treat, both books can be purchased for just £13.

Sally Crawford, Executive Director of Engagement and Income Generation, said:

“Children and parents seem to have really taken to these books. As well as being a lovely story for little ones to get lost in they also carry an important message about equine welfare.

“We hope everyone enjoys Pudding’s new book as much as the first. Once again, all profits help us continue with the welfare and rescue work we do out in the community.

“Whether you decide to buy the book, sponsor an equine or make a donation, you’ll make a positive difference and for that we’re truly grateful.”

Based in Lincolnshire, Bransby Horses has been rehoming and rescuing ponies, donkeys, mules and horses for over 50 years.

Pudding’s Picnic Panic was written as a collaborative effort by the Bransby Horses teams and primary school teacher, Helen Kennedy.

Making an ideal stocking filler, Pudding’s Picnic Panic costs £6.95 or both books can be purchased for £13 from the Visitor Centre in Bransby, online at or by calling 01427 788 464.
