Exmoor Ponies in Conservation
|The Exmoor is believed to date from prehistoric times
and the moor's isolation meant there has been little cross-breeding to
change the pony from its early ancestors. They are extremely hardy and
run wild - but are rounded up once a year for branding and registration.
They are strong enough to carry adults and despite their wild
upbringing, make good children's ponies with training.
|Origin: Exmoor, Somerset.
|Colour: Brown, bay or mousy dun.
|Height: up to 12.2 hands (mares) 12.3
(stallions and geldings).
|Conformation: broad forehead, bold eyes, thick
neck and deep chest, short, clean legs and hard feet, dense coat.
|Character: intelligent, kind natured.
