Discover Exmoor Ponies - 2017 workshops Aug 2017 - Discover Exmoor Ponies Workshops Join Dawn Westcott for an afternoon at the Exmoor Pony Project to meet Exmoor ponies - including characters like Monsieur Chapeau, Topaz and Pumpkin! Find out more about this very special, ancient native pony breed - Dawn will talk about the Exmoor pony type, their wonderful characteristics and behaviours and how positive, interactive, trust-based methods help to tame and train them. We’ll also look at how thoughtful management helps them to live more naturally, in herds, suiting their social, nutritional and physical needs. ‘Exmoor ponies are great teachers, and we’re listening to them,’ says Dawn, author of best-sellers Wild Pony Whispering and Wild Stallion Whispering. Her new book, Wild Herd Whispering is published this autumn. Ideal for people interested in the breed and those who’d like to build a more understanding relationship with ponies. Coffee, tea and cake provided. No handling involved but robust footwear is advised - this is an authentic working farm with everything that entails! Undercover areas for whatever the weather brings.

This is a private working farm as well as running the Exmoor Pony Project (Moorland Exmoor Foal Project), which involves considerable time and resource - so please bear with us regarding organising Wild Pony Whispering Workshop and event dates.
Exmoor is a fantastic place for equestrian artists to work - a sort of horse painter’s heaven - and local horse owners and Exmoor Pony specialists have been very, very welcoming. We hope to be back next year!”
