A miniature Shetland pony is taking part in Brooke, Action for Working Horses and Donkeys' #MyHackathon. 

Mini Fat Pony (also known as MFP) is Brooke’s Motivational and Educational Officer and is taking on the charity’s My Mini Hackathon challenge to raise £1000 to help improve the lives of vulnerable working equines around the world. 

MFP will be stretching her little legs by walking 10 miles in 100 days to raise money and awareness for Brooke’s How The Other Horse Lives campaign, which aims to highlight the needs of working equines in developing countries by showing what they endure on a daily basis compared to well-kept horses here in the UK.

MFP is a long-standing ambassador for Brooke and has worked with them since April Fool’s Day 2016 when the charity joked that she was to start a formal role at their offices.

Since then she has started to become a mascot,  recently visiting the South of England show to raise awareness of Brooke’s work, and also travelling to Wimbledon Stables to accept a cheque on the charity’s behalf.

My Mini Hackathon is part of Brooke’s #MyHackathon challenge which asks experienced riders and horses with longer legs to ride 100 miles in 100 days to raise £100 to help the charity’s work overseas relieving the suffering of working horses, donkeys and mules.

Brooke works with owners, communities, governments and international organisations to make lasting improvements to animal welfare.
