TrekkingAsk any Exmoor pony enthusiast what they would most like to do, and almost everyone without exception will tell you that they would love to ride an Exmoor on it's native Exmoor soil. Enjoy the feeling of freedom riding our special ponies on the windswept moor where you could glimpse wild ponies and wildlife. An Exmoor Experience Trek may take in a walk into the river at the ancient Tarr Steps, or the spectacular views over the Punch Bowl, and almost always an encounter with the curious Caractacus Stone! Winsford Hill, where we are located, is the home of the largest free-living herd of Exmoor ponies.
