CELEBRATING THE DARTMOOR PONY: 50TH ANNIVERSARY EDITION OF THE DARTMOOR DIARY
Just published is a very special edition of the Dartmoor Pony Society (DPS) ‘Dartmoor Diary’ celebrating 50 years since the first black and white issue in 1971. It is a celebration of Dartmoor ponies worldwide as well as a source of information for breed
The DPS is the ‘Mother’ Society for the traditional Dartmoor pony worldwide. The Diary includes stallions at stud, updates from Members and ‘Daughter’ Societies from as far afield as Orkney in the UK to Europe and America, as well as highlighting characters of the Dartmoor pony world, past and present, four-legged and two!
There are articles on pony registration and showing rules and a particular focus on rare bloodlines – including an appeal to all those interested in the breed to come forward if they know the whereabouts of any of the ponies that have these bloodlines – or their progeny.
Despite the impact of Covid-19 on the equine world, there is strong demand for quality Dartmoor ponies for family homes and for showing. However, this well known British Native Pony breed remains on the ‘Endangered List’ with the Rare Breeds Survival Trust – alongside Devon’s other Native Pony, the Exmoor.
The full-colour, beautifully illustrated Dartmoor Diary 2021 will be a coffee table centrepiece and a source of reference for years to come.
It is included FREE with Dartmoor Pony Society Membership or can be purchased separately at just £12 including P&P.
