‘working to promote and protect the Exmoor Pony’   

Welcome to our Website

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Exmoor National Park, the Exmoor Pony Centre is a small charity run business, owned by the Moorland Mousie Trust, working to promote and protect the endangered rare-breed Exmoor pony.

Come and visit our wonderful ponies, most of which were taken into our care when they had nowhere else to go and have benefited from the attention given by our devoted team of staff and volunteers. We can offer you the opportunity of getting close to an Exmoor Pony and pre-booked riding activities at the Centre or across the moors.

Donations, adopting a pony, joining our 100 club, volunteering or holding a fundraiser are just some of the ways you can help support us.

We receive no government funding and are grateful for every bit of help you can give towards the future of our native ponies.
