The beginning of the Fell Pony breed in North America started one pony at a time. It has taken well over 20 years , mostly through the efforts of dedicated breeders, to establish the breed here as we know it today.
As of the end of 2016 registrations, we have finally seen the Fell Pony surpass 600 animals here on the continent. Although we may be at a point where the breed can sustain itself genetically without additional bloodlines, there is still a benefit to breeders willing to make the investment in quality ponies that may suit their herd's diversity and expansion.
Additionally, individual owners, many times those looking for a mature, trained riding pony, can expand their pool of eligible candidates by shopping overseas. Older, experienced Fells very rarely come on the market here in the U.S., making the search quite difficult.
