HOW TO BUY A MOORBRED EXMOOR PONY FROM EXMOOR NATIONAL PARK
Following the pony gatherings in Oct & Nov, there will be a small number of quality Exmoor pony foals and youngstock For Sale. These beautiful ponies are born and bred in Exmoor National Park and many will have enjoyed a wonderful, free-living start in life.
The newly-weaned foals need careful, patient, kind socialisation to human contact so they can make the successful transition to life off the moors. Exmoor ponies are an endangered breed so they are all important.
If you would like to help an Exmoor pony foal by offering a good home this autumn then please email the
Moorland Exmoor Pony Breeders Group at MoorlandExmoorGroup@hotmail.co.uk.
