The Miniature Pony Centre
The Main Herd of Ponies

The Miniature Pony Centre on Dartmoor is a great ‘hands-on’ family day out filled with cuteness and pony magic for children and adults alike. With over 80 equines from gigantic mammoth donkeys and heavy horses to Miniature Shetlands and Miniature Mediterranean Donkeys, this is animal lover’s idea of heaven.
