NEWC is delighted to welcome Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust (DPHT) as a new member of NEWC. The DPHT is a registered charity, established in 2005, working tirelessly to secure the future of the native Dartmoor Pony while inspiring and connecting people with Dartmoor’s wildlife, landscape and heritage.
The central tenet of DPHT’s work is to deliver innovative education and conservation opportunities so young people and adults can learn more about the plight of the Moorland Pony, their crucial role in its ecology and role in mankind’s place on the landscape.
They work closely with conservation bodies like the National Trust and local Wildlife Trusts to place ponies for conservation grazing, and with other stakeholders and pony-keepers to ensure their involvement in conserving the Dartmoor Pony.
The DPHT's bespoke visitor and education centre at Parke Estate is open to the public on selected days throughout the year.
