The Dartmoor Pony is one of the most famous British wild pony breeds and is a popular tourist attraction for the Dartmoor area. Stocky and well suited for its environment, the Dartmoor Pony has survived for thousands of years but habitat loss has driven this iconic breed to just one area reserved especially for this breed, where they are still culled from time to time to keep the population at a manageable size. Although Exmoor Ponies live quite close geographically and have similar colours, they are not related.
