With the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust

Join Us As a Volunteer (18+)

There’s nothing quite like the feeling you get when you know you’ve done something for the common good, for the future, for the benefit of everyone. That’s exactly how you’ll feel when you join us as a volunteer.

All sorts of people volunteer with us and, whatever the reason, they find it a varied and rewarding experience. You’ll meet new people, learn new skills, and play a vital part in protecting the heritage and future of Dartmoor’s glorious native ponies. And you’ll do it all against the stunning backdrop of one of Britain’s most beautiful Moorland landscapes, a place of arching skies, incredible views, and extraordinary wildlife. Welcome to our Moorland site at Bellever near Postbridge.




Our Bellever site is pure magic, and we always need volunteers for our popular Bellever conservation work parties.

Our wonderful team of conservation volunteers on Bellever, carrying out a range of tasks to protect our Moorland site, encourage biodiversity, and manage our treasured archaeology.

Our dedicated team also maintains the stone wall boundary and deals with the non-native trees that invade the Moorland. We’re never short of things to do, and we give every volunteer a warm Dartmoor welcome.

We couldn’t do it without you. If you’d like to find out more about volunteering with us at Bellever, please email admin@dpht.co.uk or telephone on 01626 833234 for a chat.


We are looking for individuals with an interest in the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust to carry forward our aims and strategic plan.

Volunteer Training

As well as helping the vital work of the Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust when you volunteer with us, you can also learn valuable new skills that can help you in your professional and personal life; some of our volunteers have picked up new skills like stone walling repair and pony training. How often do opportunities to learn new skills like these come up while making a difference too?
