The Moorland Exmoor Foal Project was established by Nick and Dawn Westcott in 2013, to help purebred Moorland Exmoor ponies make the transition from living wild and free on Exmoor to domestic life. 

Exmoors are an endangered breed (with less than 500 breeding mares worldwide). Dawn and her team use positive, trust-based methods of horsemanship to win the trust and confidence of the ponies. Some ponies remain in the project to help educate and promote the breed, while others are found good homes.

Commenting on the association, Michele Griffiths, Sales Executive says:

"Dawn campaigns tirelessly for the benefits of the breed, and to be able to support her worthy work gives us great pleasure. With Verdo Horse Bedding's low dust benefits and 100% virgin wood content, we are able to offer these ponies a natural and healthy approach to their first experience of bedding."

Dawn adds:

"It is especially important for Exmoor ponies to have bedding that doesn't cause skin or breathing problems and we have found Verdo Horse Bedding extremely good in all respects. It is easy to use, with minimal wastage, and very comfortable for the ponies in all areas - from large barns to field shelters."
