I've missed getting out on the trail this year as my mare has just had a foal, but this was me and some friends a couple of years back. We took our horses to the South Shropshire hills and spent 2 days trail riding up there - it was so peaceful - no roads

My terrain is radically different than yours. We trailer south in the winter and spring months and ride the desert areas ( mainly because the mountains are too deep with snow)

The Butch Cassidy country offers some interesting riding and challenges. This is from the San Rafael Swell area of Central Utah.

As the season warm we start to climb in elevation. Getting higher in the mountains as we chase the snowline up. Again we do this south of where I live and move north as summer arrives.

This is from near Bryce Canyon

These areas are full of slot canyons and interesting places to explore. You wonder how a possee ever got the courage to chase outlaws thru this country.

With the arrival of summer, I head into the high country, Green grass trees and wildlife. And of course tons of wild flowers

As the summer heat melts the snow in the higher elevation we eventually get up to tree line and some of the highest points in Utah

Fall brings hunting season, fall leaves and wonderful temps to ride in.

We are still in the mountains looking for Elk and deer.

Winter brings snow and cold weather, We still ride but stay in the lower elevation, Kinda boring except for the wildlife that the snow has pushed down

Absolutely gorgeous photos/areas... coming here makes me want to move!

Fellpony, your ponies are just adorable! They look pretty sturdy... can an adult ride them comfortably? How tall are they?

Thank you atomic.

Fell ponies are very sturdy and hardy, they can be ridden by adults and are often popular as mother/child share ponies, and riding for the disabled because they are so sensible on the whole.They are usually 13 hh - 14 hh and stocky, sure footed and extremely good doers due to comming off the Lake District Fells a high up area of the UK with poorer grazing but outstanding natural beauty :), they are a very ancient native breed that has been around since the Romans ruled Great Britian.

There are some breeders of Fells in the USA but I am going to add some links to this reply, for people who want to find out more about the breed.
They are quite expensive in the USA due to their rarerity so might be easier to import direct from the UK where you would have access to a bigger range of bloodlines :). In this country they are a registered rare breed due to the small number of breeding mares. The grey ponies like my Lunan are even rarer. The grey bloodlines used to be owned and bred by the monks.

The Fell Pony Society of North America (FPSNA) Welcome

Am I selling the breed well :) I adore them.
