Dartmoor Pony Society


The Council of the Dartmoor Pony Society has decided that in 2009 the Society will cease to take stand space at various shows and events. Recognising that Society Members and the General Public will still wish to obtain items and support the Society, it has been decided that it will be mail order only for the foreseeable future.

All enquiries, in the first instance please contact the Secretary, Mr Chris Grant, on 0191 4290 400 or e-mail: dpssec@dartmoorponysociety.com

A range of items are available.

Dartmoor Breed Champions 2001 to 2012 is now available!

This is the sequel to the “Dartmoor Breed Champions from the 1940’s” which was produced in 2001 by Elizabeth Newbolt-Young from the Shilstone Rocks Stud. This second edition costs £10 and contains photographs of some of the best ponies of our breed from 2001 – 2012 inclusive.

The first edition can still be purchased from the Dartmoor Pony society for £5. Elizabeth’s love and passion for the Dartmoor Pony, inspired her to produce these photographic and ancestral records for all to see in the form of these books. They both contain photos and breeding of all the champions since 1940s and make fascinating viewing for anyone interested in Native Ponies.

To order the latest edition only please send a cheque for £11.50 (to include P&P) to Mrs E. Newbolt-Young.

To order both editions please send a cheque for £12.50 (to include P&P) to Mrs E. Newbolt-Young plus a separate cheque for £5 to The Dartmoor Pony Society.
