"I would just like everyone to know how pleased I was with Paul Cannon when he brought 2 unbroken Dartmoor fillies from the Sherberton Stud up to Welshpool yesterday. Alison Geen advised me that he stood quietly by and let them load the ponies onto his lorry without any interference, which is a rare occurrence. When the ponies arrived here, he let down the ramp and again let the ponies come out in their own time and bearing in mind that their journey was over four and a half hours they were remarkably calm. His charges for bringing the ponies here were so very reasonable and when I gave him the money and asked whether he wanted to count it, he said "if you trust me to bring your ponies to you, then I trust you to pay me and it's not necessary to check". I would really recommend him to anyone who requires transport for their ponies or horses and I only wish he was based in our area".
We would like to say a massive 'Thank you' to Dru and all at DPHT for our wonderful pony Spike. He is one in a million and I wouldn't be without him now for the world. The help I recieved from Dru was fantastic, she was perfessional, caring and understanding of what I was looking for and pointed me in the right direction. I was in a slight panic as my pony was about to be left with no company and I needed another pony ASAP, I contacted every pony trust going and Dru was the first one to get back to me. I had been to visit Spike and fell in love with him before the other trusts had even returned my call!! The fact that I can trust what I am told in regards to Spikes training is one of the main reasons I took him home. I needed a pony that would be safe with my girls. He is such a sweet boy and we are so lucky to have found him. John and Kerry were/are fantastic. I have never met a nicer couple and I also thank them. I will be recomending DPHT to all my friends and anyone I meet.
From Sam and two very happy girls,

Thankyou to Dru and the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust. We are really pleased with our 3 fillies, they are all very pretty and have nice tempraments and the groundwork done by the DPHT has been invaluable. It was well worth the distance we travelled to see them.

Thankyou for all the information you sent us regarding ponies for sale. Last monday we visited David Powell to look at his ponies. We agreed to buy a young filly Bluebell (she was on the sale list) who my daughter fell in love with and a gelding called Mr Brown who seems very friendly, gentle and came when called. We are all really looking forward to this. We had a lovely day on Dartmoor it was nice to see so many ponies with foals who all seemed very friendly.Thanks again for all your help in this matter. We are looking forward to many years of taking care of our new pets.
Kind regards Ian & Lisa Parker

Thank you so much for your response to my email yesterday enquiring after ponies to buy. I have had a great response from the pony keepers and am busy sifting threw information before thanking everyone individually. After many email enquiries your site has provided the fastest and most helpful response. Many thanks again.

Thought I'd just send you a quick email to let you know Jet's progress. He is lunging very well, I lead him out on hacks off my horse, he's long reining well and I backed him about 3 weeks ago. I rode him up through the woods the other day & so far not a lot phases him. His way of dealing with things he's not sure about is to just stop & shut down for a bit. He thinks about things especially over night & comes back the next day as if he's either asked one of the others or has read up on it over night!.
