The Moorland Exmoor Foal Project
was founded by Nick and Dawn Westcott in 2013 to help give some of the free-born Moorland Exmoor foals a good start in life and to support, encourage and promote the Moorland breeders and herds of Exmoor National Park who share like-minded objectives in wanting to safeguard the future of pedigree, purebred and cross-bred Exmoor ponies.
Since then, the Exmoor foals we have taken into the project are maturing and we are helping both foals and older ponies. We are also working with both moorbred and non-moorbred Exmoor ponies, and breeders, owners and enthusiasts on Exmoor, across the UK and overseas. What started with helping some moorland foals has become the Exmoor Pony Project
At Holt Ball, we care for and offer good opportunities to 25+ Exmoor ponies - born both on the moor, off the moor and within our own small breeding programme. The Exmoor ponies live naturally in mixed herds with ages ranging from orphaned foals to veterans. They have access to barns and shelter, corrals and pasture 24/7 all year round. We use a positive, trust-based horsemanship approach, based on two-way communication and using liberty and agility play to build trust and friendship with the ponies. We also work closely with other dedicated moorland farmers to help with management, marketing, promotion and finding good opportunities for ponies.
We are not a charity. Our remit is to help Exmoor ponies and encourage kinder, more understanding ways of handling them and to find good opportunities for them. HOW YOU CAN HELP:-
