The Fell Pony Heritage Trust is dedicated to the Fell Pony and the Hill Breeders whose commitment to the breed means semi-feral herds continue to roam the fells of Cumbria, UK.


Our vision is to establish a Fell Pony Heritage Centre in the Lake District to protect the Fell Pony breed characteristics and preserve the working practices for future generations, while also supporting the traditional stewards of the breed - the Cumbrian hill farmers. 


We have a few projects currently in the developing stages we look forward to sharing with you soon. Please check our News page for the latest information.

Sales from our online shop help to support the projects and breed promotion. Thank you!


A key aim of the Fell Pony Heritage Trust is to open a Heritage Centre to help spread the word about the breed. We also aim to support the hill breeders and raise awareness of this historic breed of British native pony. The pony can not remain "Cumbria's best kept secret" if it is to keep its home on the hills.
