The Fell Pony Society
2024 Challenge

logo, shield inscribed with 25 yearsOur 2024 Challenge has been launched at the Fell Pony Society AGM, 6th April.

As last year, the challenge is for all Fell Pony Society members in the UK and overseas. Our theme this year is celebrating 25 years of our UK Area Groups. Our Groups are run by volunteers who provide advice and guidance and run events to promote our fabulous Fell Ponies, in the UK and overseas.

Following feedback from members, this year’s challenge is in two parts.

The first part of the challenge is to walk, ride or drive your pony 25 miles and record them on the Challenge form.

The second part of the Challenge is: with your Fell Pony, complete a Photo Bingo Card, spelling the words: REGIONAL GROUPS  
Each photo will have you and your pony in it and will represent a letter. For example: ‘R’ could be a photo of you, your Fell  pony and a rose (you’ll need 2 different photos for both ‘R’ and ‘O’, by the way). ‘E’ could be with you, your Fell pony and an egg. There’s a Photo Bingo Card to fill in with the relevant word for the photo, eg, ‘rose’, ‘egg’ etc, so you know where you’ve got to with your pictures. Once complete pop your 14 photos onto the Facebook page The 2024 Fell Pony Society Challenge using the hashtag #FPSGroups25. Your group of 14 photographs can be uploaded to Facebook as a collage, or as individual photos in an album: click on the word Media at the top of the screen, then Albums / + Create Album.

Both the 25 miles and the Photo Bingo Card must be completed to achieve the challenge, and to receive your beautiful rosette.


The Challenge launched on 6th April at the AGM, and closes on 31st October.

To enter please fill in your details on the registration form and arrange for them to be sent to your Area Group Representative. The registration fee for each FPS Member taking part in the 2024 challenge is £10 (£15 if you are outside the UK, to cover postage of the rosette). You can enter multiple times but each entry costs £10.

Please record your miles and photos on the tracker form and Bingo card. When you complete, please return your completed tracker form and Bingo card to your Area Representative by 31st October 2024.

Celebrations will take place at the end of the year with Area groups hosting events to present your rosettes – a chance to meet up with fellow Fell Pony friends and do what we do so well, and take a group photo to mark 25 years together.
