This years pony sale will be held on Thursday 8th October 2020 at Chagford.

DEFRA recognise the value of these ponies and to that end they have given us the opportunity to manage the sale in a way which is beneficial to the ponies and will make the new owners experience a good one. The Oct 2019 drift sale was run
by FDHP volunteers partnered with the Dartmoor Hill Pony Association (an Independent Voice for the Pony Keepers of Dartmoor). Despite complicated administration tasks, the sale was a roaring success. 284 ponies sold on the day for higher prices
than any fetched in the last 20 years.
