Fell Pony Description
  The Fell Pony is a truely classic breed and is known for its sturdiness, as well as its jumping and trotting abilities. They are often used for riding, driving and in competition. The Fell Pony was bred in harsh climate, making it very capable of withstanding very bad weather. Also, feed is often scarce in their native land, so they are accustomed to eating little and using their food efficiently. They are courageous, hard working and docile, although it can be rather mischievous at times. They also have a strong sense of self-preservation. They need to form a working partnership with their trainers and learn to trust their rider's judgement. This may make them unsuitable for nervous adults or small children. They are, however, very well suited for the disabled. The Fell Pony resembles the Freisian horse in appearance. It is an extremely handsome horse with a long neck topped by a neat, pony-like head. The head has a broad forehead, large bright eyes, small ears and large notrils. Its ribs are well-sprung with muscular loins and quarters. The legs are strong with plenty of bone. Their coat is primarily black, but some may be brown or bay. Its mane and tail are long and lustrous, and they have feathers from the knee down.
