The South West boasts a massive base of native pony enthusiasts. There are a wide number of local native societies; some are breed specific, others cover a certain area and we also have areas of national societies represented. Links to some of the area websites can be found at the bottom of this page. There are many top studs based in the West Country which have had great success in the show ring qualifying for HOYS and Olympia, reaching record prices in national sales, shown amazing abilities performing in disciplines such as dressage and driving trials at an international level – proving the quality of ponies that can be found here.
The very best of our native ponies are showcased at our county shows every year. Royal Cornwall, Devon County, Royal Bath & West, Dorset County all have spectacular performances from our native ponies in-hand, under saddle and usually in harness too!
The NPSW Team; Beansy & Magpie
The NPSW duo have gone from strength to strength with articles and reports being published in many national titles such as The Native Pony Magazine and Showing World, a monthly double page spread in Equestrian Life and our very own ‘Magpie’ has also been reporting for both Western Morning News and Horse and Hound. We do it because we love our native ponies and wish to provide a space where like-minded people can get local information about our ponies and the people around them. We also encourage enthusiasts to share their news and views by commenting on posts here, e-mailing us or joining in the discussion on our Facebook pages!
If you have any stories, news or useful information you would like to share, please feel free to contact us!
