The Fell Pony Society
Calendar of Events 2015

This list contains FPS meetings and FPS shows, mostly in the North of England. Many other events are organised throughout Britain by Fell Pony Society Area Support Groups. See the UK map. Click on your area on the map to discover what is happening there.

Outside the United Kingdom, FPS Branches run activities for Fell pony owners. They are listed on the International Affiliates page.

Details for the dates listed will be added as the year goes on. The list is not "trimmed" when events have gone by, because most of them recur annually at around the same date. Look out for them next year.
