Tawbitts Quieta (AKA Nikita) is a gentle pony who has been kept for petting by us for 6 years. She is fine with children and can be led easily. She has never been ridden. But has no health reasons not to be backed and ridden. She has a lovely temperment so should make a nice childs pony with an experienced person to back her properly. A great opportunity to own a pure bred Exmoor- who could show in-hand or potentially compete in M&M lead rein classes etc.She is registed with the Exmoor Society.

  • Most suitable home and loanee/owner/sharer

    She comes with a companion Mostly Dartmoor pony called Brandy. They are bonded pair and we are not willing to seperate them. Their new home must cater for both of them. Brandy will be fine to left while Nikita is off being backed/ridden etc. As long as Brandy is not left in a large open space to get worried about her friend leaving her etc. But in a stable with food for instance she will be fine.

Exmoor

Natural selection has designed a pony suited to survival in a cold and wet climate without the provision of food or shelter by mankind. Two features unique to the breed are the “hooded-eye”, or heavy upper brow to protect the eyes from wind and rain, and the “snow-chute”, a group of short course hairs at the top of the tail designed to channel rain and snow down away from the body. The snow-chute, or ice-tail is shed each summer and regrown each Autumn. Their summer coat is sleek and shinny, but in winter they grow a double layered coat to provide both insulation and waterproofing enabling them to stand out in the worst of weather and remain dry at skin level.

The Exmoor pony has a wide forehead with large eyes, thick neck, deep chest, well laid back shoulders, broad back and short legs. They are hardy and strong with good stamina and a straight and smooth action.
