HISTORY
Walk with ‘Dartmoor’s Daughter’ through a stunning landscape and along part of the historic Haytor Granite Tramway. Hear stories of the quarrymen, tram-pulling ponies, and nearby legends, and keep a look out for a semi-wild pony herd in their natural habitat. Then visit the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust (DPHT) and enjoy an hour’s hands-on experience with Dartmoor heritage ponies – grooming, hoof-picking, and walking on a lead rein. Find out about the lives and work of the farmers who keep the ponies on the ‘Commons’ of Dartmoor.
