The UK has done a good job of promoting and protecting the diverse Mountain and Moorland breeds - regional ponies of ancient lineage from the various parts of Great Britain. One of the least changed of these (i.e. not having had much Arab or other breeds mixed with it over time) is the Exmoor pony. Many still live a semi-wild life.
The stallion "Barton" pictured here shows the distinctive oatmeal colored muzzle, ridged eye socket, mealy color around eye, small ears, and dense coat characteristic of the Exmoor. These hardy ponies are good jumpers and can carry a small adult easily, even though they are typically around 12 hands high. They vary in color from dark brown like this one, to a more ruddy bay color. Most Exmoors have the mealy color not only around the muzzle but also on the flanks and belly. White marking such as socks and stars are not permitted by the registry, and rarely occur.
