I've always thought they are adorable (yours certainly are). I am curious about their disposition and suitability for various riding disciplines.

My two are both safe sane and sensible, though Lunan is still a bit green due to his age.
Fell ponies can turn there hoof to anything from trekking, to endurance, jumping,driving, dressage & showing. They have great stamina and endurance, surefooted. Great all rounders.

They are adorable. If I could afford to have many horses, those definitely would be one of them.

They really look nice. I am so glad to see that the "native" ponies of Britain are not being allowed to just wither away. Maybe they could reach the popularity in the US that the Icelandics have.

I miss riding Fells. Where I learnt to ride they bred Fells on the side so that's what I learnt to ride on. Cracking ponies and they cross nicely as well. I've ridden several wonderful crosses but the purebreeds are just lovely. You can't beat a good native.
