Fell Description

The Fell is from the high moorland and mountainous regions from 1000-2000ft above sea level in the counties of Cumbria, Durham and North Yorkshire. The Fell may have been closely related to the now extinct Galloway pony. Traditionally the Fell pony was used for pack work, carrying goods such as Copper, Iron and Lead ores from mines to smelting works and for shepherding on fell farms.

Action: Smart, true and well balanced.

The Fell Pony Society was formed in 1922
