shilstone rocks day of fury with mares and foals

Newoak Stud
Joyce & Jacky Newbery

We founded Newoak Stud in 1990 and over the years we have seen many changes within the breed non other than the introduction of mixed M&M classes at RIHS and HOYS both of which have helped increase the popularity of this addictive breed.

Dartmoors have proven time and time again that although they are small in stature they can hold there own in any company in any sphere.

As breeders we aim for type and temperament, we like a quality well put together pony with good bone and movement they must also have a temperament to enable them to become a child's pony. Ultimately not every pony bred is going to go to the top in any one discipline but our reckoning is as long as it can do a job and do it well that's an achievement.

We have found that the Show Pony/Dartmoor cross produces a wonderful SHP/WHP type with the added bonus of the wonderful Dartmoor temperament and they make exceptional competition ponies.

Our brood mares are selected for type, temperament, blood lines and most importantly whether we like their stamp. A pony can have the best parentage in the land but if you don't like it yourself what's the point?

We are a mother and daughter team based in Exeter Devon alongside the stud we also run a riding school in which we have around 10 working Dartmoor Ponies.

Each year we have around 12 foals all by our resident stallions

We are looking forward to another lovely year watching our ponies compete.
