Venue: Dalemain House, Near Ullswater

It was a stunningly May day, as the 2016 Stallion and Colt show commenced at Dalemain House, near Lake Ullswater in the Lake District on Saturday.  There were 10 classes in total and all were well supported.  Fell ponies are native to the North of England and most found in Cumbria. They make great all round family ponies, both suitable for adults and children.

The Fell pony society was created in 1922 to help maintain the old ‘pure’ breed and now foal registrations with the society has steadily risen, exceeding 400 annually in the last 10 years
