Rileynbob she's beautiful and very shiny!
My Norman is a fell pony and a sweetheart, but he is also rather stubborn and thinks very highly about himself lol. Which I think may be a common trait in Fell Ponies! He is also very clever and manages to undo all sorts of locks and bolts put on his stable door!
My riding school bred and showed them. They have Rivington Prince Charming who qualified for HOYs and I can tell you is a fabulous looking pony stallion. I've ridden several fells and fell crosses, good looking and sturdy horses.
