The Exmoor pony is strong for its height, with heavy, dense bone and powerful musculature, and is noted for its hardiness, disease-resistance, and endurance.
it shows a distinctly different jaw structure to other horse breeds, including the beginnings of development of a seventh molar.
The head is somewhat large in proportion to the body, with small ears, and has a characteristic "toad eye" caused by fleshiness of the eyelids, which helps both to deflect water and provide extra insulation. As with most cold-weather pony breeds, the Exmoor grows a winter coat consisting of a highly insulative woolly underlayer and a top-coat of longer, oily hairs which prevent the undercoat from becoming waterlogged by diverting water down the sides of the animal to fall from just a few drip areas. The mane
are thick and long, and the dock of the tail is of a type common in cold-weather ponies, having coarse white hairs, known variously by terms such as "frost cap," or "snow chute," which deflect rainwater away from the groin and underbelly areas to fall from the long hairs on the back of the hindleg.
