There are currently nineteen free-living registered herds on Exmoor within the Exmoor National Park.

The situation on the moor is always evolving and the following changes have occurred since the map was published:

  • Herd H8 has moved from Withypool to Haddon Hill
  • Herd H23 has been disbanded
  • The ENPA have currently changed their policy so that they will be breeding foals in 2017 to replace losses from Herds H42 and H52.

During the Exmoor Pony Festival, a good number of the moorland herd owners are happy to take visitors to see their ponies on the moor and, where applicable, at their home farms.  Please contact Rob Taylor (co-ordinator for the Exmoor Committee of Herd Owners – ECHO) on 01643 831099 or Sue McGeever on 01884 839930.

There will be moor bred foals for sale this autumn.
