Raising money to help other charities save the dartmoor foals 

The Epona Trust

The official website for The Epona trust registered charity working for ponies and horses

Please help save poppy.

Poppy is a beautiful welsh pony, she is in a dealers yard and if we can’t raise the 250€ to save her, she will be shipped to Italy for slaughter next week.

STOP! what you are you about to do.

If you are going to give your money to a horse trader. he will take that money and buy another horse to put in her place, so his lorry will leave fully loaded

Each time he dupes the public into buying, he puts the profit in his own pocket and pays for his family to eat.

These dealers will take a picture of one horse and put it on sites all over the net. Perhaps four different groups will raise the money to save poppy, just lucky for the dealer he has another three ponies in his yard that look just like Poppy.

This is one of the biggest scams going. TRUE

I have been fighting these dealers for over 40 years and I can assure you they are laughing all the way to the bank.

We have taken several of these horses because they were saved by sites in the UK and France and for one reason or another they were unfit to make the journey to their destination.


The lorry usually turns up at night. The transporter paid for by her rescuers.

Paperwork often illegible. faded or water damaged . On two occasions, we did not receive the advertised horses.

If you wish to save a horse, do it before the meat man gets involved

Every month we have at least one request to take a horse because the owners can’t find a home for it.                                                    Contact us to find out more

Dartmoor pony cull starts soon

Please don't forget to write or phone this is the best time to start complaining about this vile annual ritual. Lets see if we can get this in the news now. please see under meat trade. This will happen again next year if we don't complain. don't expect to see the drift on TV it is now going undercover.  Stop these ignorant people from causing such distress to 100s of ponies every year.

Where to complain

 Devon county council. The Dartmoor trust, The Commoners council. Any MP. The Duchy and Prince Charles and letters to the press
