Hill Pony Resources are a group of like-minded people who would like to see a positive future for the ponies of Dartmoor. We find homes for Dartmoor Hill Ponies and would like to work with others who would like to keep them healthy on the moor, a reduction in numbers born each year resulting in a reduction in those going for slaughter. We save a few of these ponies and handle them so that they can find good homes. We aim to promote what these ponies can achieve so that less ponies go for slaughter. Hill Ponies can turn their hooves to most things - some of our ponies have become therapy ponies, ridden ponies, driving and cuddle companions!
We endeavour to ensure that the transition from wild to domestic is as gentle as possible, we work with each ponies individual temperament and prefer to work at their pace for the best outcome.
Hill Ponies Adopted from us remain under our care for life
