Exmoors are tough and hardy, with a willing and hard working nature provided they are caught and broken in when young. The Exmoor is extensively used as a children's riding pony and for trekking. They are ideal for endurance riding due to their great stamina, and are also used in competitive driving trails. Exmoors are sturdy and thickest ponies, with full and wiry manes and tails. The legs are slender but strong with well formed joints. The feet are small but very hard and rounded.
