Windermere Fell Pony Show

Sunday, 2 July 2000
Brockhole, Windermere, Cumbria
Judge: Mr. D Lee

The annual Windermere Fell Pony Show was held on Sunday at the Brockhole National Park Visitor Centre.  The weather has always been kind to this show but decided this year that it should make up for past aberrations.  A misty start soon developed into continuous drizzle with long periods of heavy rainfall.  This led to the cancellation of the bareback trotting race much to the disappointment of spectators and competitors alike.  Brockhole is the only remaining venue for this traditional Fell Pony event.

The show was however a resounding success.  Judge, Mr. David Lee from Halifax, commented that the quality of the animals on display was exceptionally high and that he had "not seen a bad foot all day".  Much of the hard work in preparing ponies for the show might have been considered unnecessary in such weather but the Fell Ponies at Brockhole proved that they are eye catching and able to perform spectacularly in all conditions.
