Dartmoor ponies come from a region of moor- and heathland in south-west England. They are highly robust and sure-footed. In the past, they were used as working horses in tin mines, where they pulled heavy carts. Nowadays, they are popular as driving horses and as ponies for children due to their friendly, calm and reliable character.
