Where it all began
D J Murphy (Publishers) Ltd was founded in 1949 by David J Murphy, who spotted a gap in the market for a magazine for young horse enthusiasts.
He started publishing PONY magazine, and for many years it was the only title dedicated to young equestrians. Since then, generations of pony-mad children and teenagers have grown up with PONY, in the UK and all over the world.
The title continues to inspire each new generation and PONY is firmly established as the UK’s number one equestrian teen magazine.
