On the last day of Great Landscapes Week, join us at the Helm, Oxenholme to meet the native Cumbrian fell ponies that live there, a friendly and hardworking breed that has been part of the Cumbrian landscape for centuries.

Visitors to the Helm, the large hill next to Oxenholme station, Kendal may have noticed a group of regular grazers living there – a herd of native Fell ponies.

We are inviting you to meet the ponies “working” on the Helm and to find out more about this rare local breed and their role in conservation grazing. 

Nicola Evans and The Fell Pony Society will be on hand to talk about the ponies as a breed and about the individual ponies present. Nicola said: “The ponies all have very individual characters and great personalities, so do come and meet them, I’m sure it will be a fun event.”
