The Fell Pony Society
Calendar of Events
This list contains FPS meetings and FPS shows, mostly in the North of England. The list is not "trimmed" when events have gone by, because most FPS events recur annually at around the same date. Look out for them next year.
Many other events are organised throughout Britain by Fell Pony Society Area Support Groups. See the UK map of FPS Area Support Groups. 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.
More FPS dates and fuller details will be added as the year goes on.
Other shows and events not affiliated to the FPS are listed below the FPS Calendar.
