At Lowertown Farm we run an established herd of good quality and carefully selected Pedigree and Heritage Approved mares and we aim to produce confident and happy ponies.

All ponies are handled using natural horsemanship methods before sale. Please look at our page 'Dartmoor Ponies and Natural Horsemanship' for more information.

Dartmoor Pony Training Feb 2014

Comments from the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust Visitor Centre at Bovey Tracey:

“Monday morning a delightful strawberry roan filly and dark bay colt foal with a large star arrived at the centre for handling. Now Thursday morning, they have had their feet picked out and lightly trimmed. They are both very easy to handle with excellent temperaments, these two would make excellent childrens riding or driving ponies. The lad has really big strong knees and a delightful manner. The filly is particularly easy to lead considering they have only had a few hours work on them. Been a while since we had such easy foals to start. They have been a pleasure to work with; it will be a sad moment to say goodbye to them later today when Hannah and Luke Fursdon will take them home until we find them a suitable family to live with.”
