Bellever also has a fascinating range of wildlife, including Dartmoor ponies. The Dartmoor Pony Heritage Trust is a registered charity dedicated to the preservation of the Dartmoor pony breed. Their pedigree and approved heritage Dartmoor ponies graze the forest, helping to keep the vegetation down and create diverse grassland areas for wildlife. It is important to keep all gates shut in order to prevent cross-breeding with ponies from the surrounding area. Please do not feed the ponies.
