We're pleased to be supporting 'Heritage of the Fells - Ponies past, present and for the future’' with the award of a 'Discover Cumbria' grant.

A series of events are taking place in Shap from 1st - 14th August.

The events will raise awareness of an aspect of the landscape many do not know about. It will  explore the hardiness of this rare breed and how it is adapted to living out on the fells. It will consider what part the Fell pony has to play in grazing the fells in the future and highlight the fact that the Fell Pony is now an endangered breed.


If you're planning an event this year that you think will provide an innovative opportunity for people and communities to get outside, discover and enjoy something new about the natural environment, then it may qualify for a 'Discover Cumbria' grant.
