Saturday 11th August

Fell Pony Society Breed Show: Please note change of venue. Because of the current weather conditions and fears that the show would have to be cancelled again if held at Brougham, the decision has been made to relocate the show for this year to Streatlam Farm, near Barnard Castle. The site has hard standing for the trailers and horse boxes and hard roads throughout the site as well as a good wide entrance off the A688 2 miles from Barnard Castle.

Directions to the site are available from the Calendar of Events page.

As part of our celebration of 90 years of the Fell Pony Society, we are running a writing competition, with the title: “Fell Diamonds.” We are looking for writing that is lively and entertaining to read, so you can interpret the two words of the title in any way you want. The competition opens on 4th June 2012 and closes on 30th November 2012.

The best entries will be published in the FPS 90th Anniversary Celebration Book which will be produced by the FPS in early 2013. More....
