Guidelines for the Formation of Fell Pony Society Overseas Branches 

News from Overseas FPS Branches

The Branches send regular reports which can be read in the FPS Magazines (Spring and Autumn).

 

The Fell Pony Society has recently been made aware, by FPS members in England, Europe and USA, of advertisements containing the term "Mini Friesian" with reference to Fell ponies. Our Overseas Branches also tell us that they have to correct the use of this term on a regular basis, when exhibiting Fell ponies to the general public. "To make such comparisons deliberately in any advertisement is misleading both about the Fell pony and about any other breed that is compared to it. For a longer discussion of the historical arguments about the Friesian comparison, please see the Fell Pony Museum web site, http://www.fellponymuseum.org.uk/fells/rom_dark/friesian.htm.

The Fell Pony Society wishes to state that it strongly disapproves of the use of comparisons with other breeds to describe, promote or advertise the Fell. A Fell pony is a Fell pony, a strong, hardy, versatile, purebred English working pony, who should not be described as a mini version of any other breed.
