Dartmoor Pony Showcase Day Sunday 11:00 until 15:00
Says Margaret Rogers, one of the pony keepers and farmers trying to ensure the long term future of the Dartmoor pony on Dartmoor: “This Sale is for quality animals to show the public the true value and worth, of the Dartmoor breed. It will be a superb Showcase for ponies bred on Dartmoor. All ponies put forward for this sale will have been chosen for their excellent temperaments and conformation. We are proud to promote ponies from their true origin.”

Selected Dartmoor Pony Keepers have been invited to put forward ponies, from unbroken, lightly handled yearlings, to adult ponies broken to ride and drive. Full details of each animal, its history and herd, will be provided. Each will have a basic level of handling to enable them to go on to become established family ponies for children and light adults, for riding and driving, or as conservation grazers.

Owners will be present to talk to potential buyers, and advice on pony care, management, training and general responsibilities of ownership, will be available. A variety of equine demonstrations will take place throughout the day, plus stalls, a pony obstacle race, ponies working in harness and locally produced refreshments will be provided. Full details of the information and education work carried out by the DPHT will also be on display; meet our trainers, volunteers and education team to find out more.

Each pony will be presented separately, with full details of its background, in this Private Sale – it is NOT an Auction.

Only Heritage, Supplementary Register and Pedigree Dartmoor ponies, all meeting recognised breed standards and inspected by Dartmoor Pony Society A Panel Judges are eligible and all ponies will be microchipped and passported.

Those interested can find out more by contacting Dru Butterfield on: 01626 833234 or via the website, www.dpht.co.uk.
