The Heritage of the Hill-Bred Fell Pony

Location: The Rheged Centre, Redhills, Penrith, CA11 0DQ

Dates: 06 August 2019 - 22 August 2019

Opening Times: 10am to 5pm

These ponies have been bred on the upland fells for centuries by the farmers who have allocated grazing rights for their farm animals. 

The breeding herds on the fell keep the ponies traditional hardiness and sure footedness so essential to their use as a working pony. 

They were an intrinsic part of Cumbria’s landscape and cultural heritage.
