Promoting Performance Exmoor Ponies



We’ve rapidly become the leading online platform for Exmoor pony competitions.
We offer a range of disciplines so that whatever your interest, we intend to have a class to suit you.


We strive to help Exmoor pony enthusiasts improve the training & understanding of their ponies through video tutorials, sharing breed information and offering feedback from judges through score sheets and comments.


In summer 2020, Jenna Payne hosted the first virtual show for Exmoor ponies for the Exmoor Pony Society in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. The show was a resounding success with over 220 entries and exhibits from as far away as Sweden and Germany, the show became the largest Exmoor pony show in history and the first international. Later in the season, Jenna was joined by Lizzie Raspin to support the EPS’ Midlands Area Show which also received a great turnout of exhibitors. 

It became clear that there was a distinct appetite for online showing for Exmoor pony enthusiasts and so ExieFest was formed. In December 2020, the team hosted their first event; Christmas ExieFest. 


All of the profits from each of our shows will be donated to Exmoor pony charities. Christmas ExieFest (December 2020) raised money for the Moorland Mousie Trust and The Exmoor Pony Society.

Through 2021, the team raised over £1,000 for The Exmoor Pony Society as they celebrated their centenary year by hosting a series of special online events. 

For 2022, the team are pleased to be partnering with the Moorland Mousie Trust for all of the online events, but new for this year is ExieFest *LIVE*, a real show day to be held at the Somerset County Show in conjunction with the Somerset Area Rep for the EPS, Rachael Davis, and all the funds that ExieFest raise from that event will go to the Exmoor Pony Society.
