Ponies can be nominated for any achievement during the current year. The reason for nomination can be anything from competitive achievements to being an all-round family pony or a special broodmare. Maybe your pony has taught you something special or is simply but importantly a firm friend. Is your Exmoor pony a dream come true? The pony can have passed away but must have been alive at the start of the year.

Nominations must be submitted in less than 500 words. These words should express the reason for nomination and why the pony is a star.
