The Fell Pony was first imported to the US in 1934. Over the years, their numbers have increased to more than 380 in 2010. The Fell Pony is considered a rare breed in the U.S., and endangered in the UK, with numbers less than 6000 worldwide. Breeders are working hard to preserve the breed, and to maintain the original breed standards.
There are only 500 breeding mares in the U.K. where the ponies run wild on the Fells in semi feral herds. With a small, gene pool, the Fell breeders monitor their breeding programs carefully, to insure their survival, with ethical breeding practices.
At this time, there are less than 35 approved breeding stallions in North America with many mares and stallions are being bred here and imported every year.
