Dartmoor Hill Pony Performance Classes 2019:

There is a change to the format this year, hopefully to encourage more Dartmoor Hill Ponies to compete in the shows and the performance classes.

First of all the Championships will now not be held as Ridden/In Hand classes with the ponies present, but as accumulated points to be won at the accredited shows. These points will be added up and awarded at the End of Season Party.

E.g.:

  • The top DHP Ridden will win 5 points and £5.00
  • The Second DHP Ridden will win 3 points and £3.00
  • The top DHP In-Hand will win 5 points and £5.00
  • The second DHP In-Hand will win 3 points and £3.00

In addition the winning ponies will each receive a special DHP rosette.

All Dartmoor Hill Ponies applying for a special rosette and entering the Championships must hold a card proving they are bona fide Dartmoor Hill Ponies.

Cards can be obtained from Mrs. A. Came, 7 Summerhills Crescent, Liverton TQ12 6HG or by email at hjarvis52615@gmail.com. The cards costs 6 first class stamps and lasts for the ponies lifetime.

We held an exhibition of Dartmoor Hill Ponies. We had lots of lovely pictures, interesting stories from their owners and knowledgeable information about the different herds and the history of the Dartmoor Hill Pony. The exhibition was held at Ullacombe Farm, Haytor Road, Bovey Tracey. The event saw a gentle trickle of visitors throughout the day who enjoyed seeing and reading about the different ponies and what these versatile ponies are capable of.

We will be holding another Exhibition at Ullacombe Farm, Haytor Road, Bovey Tracey on Sunday, 7th October 2018 just before the drifts the following week. We hope to see a few more visitors to come and learn about these fantastic ponies.

If you have any photos or stories that you would to share at the exhibition then please feel free to either bring them along on the day or send them to the email address below with a brief description and we will put them up on the wall.
