Raising a pony from this stage is the most worthwhile, but it takes a lot of work, perseverance, appropriate equipment and practice. A number of growers will have treated the filly before selling, but whether this has been done or not, you may need help, according to your skill levels, to guide your pony through the various levels of his training until he breaks in.
When you have the feeling that you need help, it may be advisable to take the pony directly to where you have the first set up - if you leave a young pony in your dock without using it, it will be very hard to get it back. All the more so when you've purchased two!

It is the responsibility of the Pony Society to issue passes for pony exmoors to be entered in Section I or Section I of the studbook. Owners are required to apply for a colt pass before the end of the year in which they are given birth or before their 6th birthday.
If the pony is checked by the inspectors of the company, this is done by the grower. Checks are performed to make sure that only colts that meet the breeding requirements are listed in section 1 and can be shown and raised as Exmoor ponies. If a pony does not pass its test, it has a conformation or race defect.
