Dartmoor and Highland Ponies in Lancashire

Westown Stud was started nearly 20 years ago when we began to breed Dartmoor ponies , as the children outgrew the dartmoors we looked for a larger replacement and fell in love with the Highland pony! Our mission is to support the Dartmoor and Highland breeds, which are both low in numbers, with only a few thousand of each left in the world! We try to breed ponies that can participate in a variety of disciplines, with quiet temperaments, good looks, limb and movement but we also want our ponies to be loving companions. Dartmoor's and Highlands were the best possible choice for my children and now the are all part of our family. We love visitors so please get in touch if you would like to come and meet them.

The Story So Far

Eighteen years ago  I purchased my first dartmoor pony when my daughter was just a baby as I wanted to give her a companion that could be her best friend.  I then started breeding Dartmoor ponies as it turns out they’re a rather addictive breed and I just couldn’t stop! They’re a uniquely versatile breed that provide fantastic companionship and are able to compete in a variety of disciplines – perfect for a children's pony! All my children loved them but eventually outgrew them (literally). I then moved on to  Highland ponies, which were more suitable for their riding needs. I picked these two breeds because, sadly they’re both highly endangered. Through Westown Stud, I’m so glad to be a part of the effort to repopulate these beautiful breeds,
