European The Buyer Must Brave a Milling Mass of Kicking, Biting Animals to Capture Her Pony Almost as wild as the red deer of their native Exmoor are the ponies when they reach the Bampton pens. After purchase, new owners must catch and halter their ponies for the trip home. The fair has been held annually since the 13th-century reign of King Henry III. Dealers from allover Britain attend.
