Meet the amazing Exmoor ponies on our working Exmoor farm next to the beautiful Dunkery Commons and find out how we manage a large herd. The ponies feature in Dawn Westcott's Wild Pony Whispering books and she works with them at liberty, building trust and connection. Exmoor ponies are one of Great Britain's oldest (and wildest) native pony breeds - and they are endangered. The Exmoor Pony Project helps to safeguard and promote better understanding and treatment of Exmoor ponies.
National Park Experiences is a curated collection that brings the stories of our National Parks to life. Each experience offers an authentic insight into the landscape and special qualities of a National Park.Testimonial!"Thank you, Dawn and Nick, for the amazing experience and privilege. Saturday was a breathtaking afternoon. The herd is remarkable! Each and everyone of the ponies are beautiful, full of character and your dedication to them is beguiling! It was a pleasure to be allowed to share the experience of being with you both and the ponies. I would recommend anyone who has not done so yet to come and visit you. We will most certainly coma back again.”
