Join the Friends

We would be delighted if you would like to become a member of our voluntary organisation dedicated to the job of supporting and promoting these ponies to ensure them a future on the moor and also ensure them a good home when they leave the moor by giving them an identity and therefore a real value.

Dartmoor needs its ponies to graze the moor effectively and traditional herds, running with a stallion will breed – it’s nature! Though stallions are controlled and quality inspected there is a surplus of foals every year and part of our aim is to work out ways of lessening and dealing with the surplus.

Our aim is to make sure the hill ponies thrive on Dartmoor and will remain on the moor for future generations to enjoy and appreciate.

Just £15 (please give more if you can) allows you to become a Friend of the Dartmoor Hill Pony and you will receive:
•    Friends of the Dartmoor Hill Pony car sticker.
•    Regular Friends of the Dartmoor Hill Pony newsletter.
•    When you become a member you receive an update on what is happening and events that are taking place, and most important of all any ideas on how we can make a difference are gratefully received.
•    Free advice,information about owning or handling a Dartmoor Hill pony or just to find out more about the ponies on the moor.
But most of all your support will really make a difference in helping these wonderful ponies in their battle for survival on Dartmoor.
