Fell ponies looking over stone wall

Fantasy the Fell Pony become the inspiration to create a range of giftware and china celebrating British Native Ponies. Fantasy is one quirky Fell Pony, she manages to have many adventures and she looks forward to sharing them with you.

Fantasy’s ancestors have roamed the hills and been a part of the Cumbrian and Lake District landscape for generations, with recorded pedigrees starting in the late 19th century. Originally used on the farm and as pack ponies which included carrying lead from Cumbrian mines. The ponies now prove their versatility by participating in a host of equestrian disciplines, but more importantly they soon become a much loved member of the family. The breed is now listed as ‘vulnerable’ on the Rare Breeds Trust Register http://www.rbst.org.uk and so it’s important that we cherish and nurture our British mountain and moorland ponies, particularly those that are on the RBST ‘watch list.’

Dry Stone Walls

Fantasy Fell lives out on the hills in Cumbria, you’ll see lots of dry stone walls throughout the landscape. They offer a great means of shelter for Fell ponies and other livestock when the weather is harsh. If you’re lucky you might see the ponies peaking over the wall. Fantasy Fell is always on the look out to see what’s going on and to have a chat!

Local Agricultural Shows

Fantasy Fell spends her summer going to the local agricultural shows throughout the Lake District. It’s a chance for the community to come together and compete in a whole host of competitions; vintage vehicles; stick dressing; Cumberland & Westmorland Wrestling; Hound trailing; sheep and cattle judging; and of course Fell Pony Classes, a chance for Cumbria’s native breed to shine!

We hope you enjoy Fantasy’s stories and her collections as much as we enjoyed creating it for you.
