Group Visits & Pony Parties
The Exmoor Pony Centre welcomes groups to learn more about the Exmoor Pony breed, and to see the work of The Moorland Mousie Trust at first hand. Each visit can be specially tailored to suit your group needs. Our aim is to ensure a fun and informative session, with the opportunity for hands-on interaction. Previous group visits have included all ages and abilities: U3A and community groups, student and school groups and adult learning groups.
We can offer light refreshments for your group, but if you wish to bring your own picnic there are seating areas both under cover and outdoors.
We are located just off Winsford Hill, home of the Anchor herd. A visit to the Centre can easily be incorporated with viewings of the free-living herds.

The benefits of spending time with the ponies can be far reaching and can be undertaken in a variety of formal and informal settings. Our ponies have given hundreds of people positive experiences over the years. Since our early beginnings at a charity we have welcomed groups and individuals to find comfort and enlightenment through contact with our ponies.
