What’s on in 2021

The Exmoor Pony Festival Team are delighted to announce plans for a schedule of events in 2021!

To adhere to capacity and distancing guidelines we have taken the action to offer a set of events throughout the month of August to allow for as much pony filled fun as possible and to spread the workload for the organisers, who will be working vigilantly to work to government guidance and keep everybody safe.

All events must be pre-booked. Please contact us on exmoorponyfestival@gmail.com
