The Fell Pony Society
The Fell Pony Society's aim is to foster and keep pure the old breed of pony which has roamed the northern fells for years and to circulate knowledge and general information about the pony breed.
The Society deals with the Registration of Ponies, applications for Membership and export matters, and produces two Magazines per year, lists of ponies for sale and a regular calendar of events.

With effect from 1 October 2020 it will be a legal requirement for all horses in England to be microchipped (this applies in Wales from 12 February 2021 and in Scotland from 28 March 2021).
When your vet implants a chip for the first time, the barcode label should be placed in the passport with the stamp and signature of the vet beside. The owner should either send the passport or a scanned copy of the passport to the Society as soon as possible so that the records can be updated.
