‘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.

Updated Statement Covid-19 – Information for Visitors and Supporters 

As the Covid 19 Crisis unfolds we would like to send all our supporters our very best wishes at this difficult time. We would like to assure everyone that the ponies are receiving the best of care and that whilst work at the Centre carries on, we have taken the decision to CLOSE TO THE PUBLIC WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT. Protecting the well-being of our staff and visitors is our priority and we feel it would not be right to remain open. We urge everyone to follow the government guidelines and hope that we will be able to re-open in the future. 
We shall be undertaking enhanced social media and fundraising notifications so please keep in touch with us and our work. We hope to continue to bring you news and some ‘light hearted’ relief from the current situation with updates and stories of our ponies. 
Thank you for your understanding, stay safe, we hope for the best and that the charity will come out of this situation with the funds to continue and hope that we will be able to welcome visitors to the Exmoor Pony Centre in the future. 

Linzi Green, Manager
