The Exmoor Pony Project
The EXMOOR PONY PROJECT faces serious challenges with Covid19 restrictions. We're working ideas to replace lost income and raise funds to safeguard the ponies - and we need your help!
We directly care for over 30 Exmoor ponies - one of the UK’s oldest, endangered native pony breeds and we help many others, along with with promoting the breed.
Our normal income and activities have been severely compromised by Covid19 and as an animal conservation project, we get no central government support.
Trying to find solutions
We are evolving a peat-free multi-purpose compost from the pony herd's manure which is getting the thumbs up from local gardeners. We need to raise funds to develop EXMOOR COMPOST into a sustainable venture, which can help support the Exmoor ponies for the long term.
How you can help
Please consider donating to this Exmoor Pony Project crowdfund to help us safeguard the Exmoor ponies which rely on this project.
Helping the environment and native breed conservation
Exmoor Compost is PEAT FREE and we’re pleased to be doing our bit for climate change in creating this environmentally-beneficial compost - as well as helping to safeguard one of the UK’s most ancient, endangered native pony breeds. The Exmoor ponies in our project come from a range of Exmoor moorland herds and include some beautiful rescues, orphans and important genetics - ponies who would not be here today without our project.
Please donate and tell your friends - and thank you for your support!
