DARTMOOR PONY SOCIETY
GUARDIAN OF THE BREED
Registered in England 3240342
Please be aware that there is only one pony Breed Society on Dartmoor. This is the Dartmoor Pony Society which represents and holds the stud book for the Pedigree pony which is recognised by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust.
The Hill Pony Association and the Friends of the Dartmoor Hill ponies represent the unregistered Hill Ponies and have no connection to the Dartmoor Pony Society. Any articles appearing in the media which either state or give the impression that they have any connection with the Dartmoor Pony Society are misleading and untrue.
The Dartmoor Pony Society is the sole representative of the Pedigree Dartmoor Pony on Dartmoor and is the Mother Society of the breed worldwide. All enquires regarding the pedigree pony should be refered to the Registered Office:

Passports without Section IX (Medicinal Treatment)
There may be a small number of passports issued prior to 2003 that do not contain Section IX. Passports without section IX are invalid. The Society did undertake a recall at the time, but to be certain please check your passport/s for Section IX. If they do not contain this section, return them immediately to the Office for updating. It is an offence not to do so under the Horse Passport Legislation. We will have to make a small charge of £2 to cover P&P. We thank you for your co-operation.
