The Edinburgh Prize for Driving

Instituted by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh

“To be awarded internationally to a single or multiple turnout
of registered Fell Ponies, 
for achievement in Driving”

Prior to his passing, a new award was presented by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh via the Fell Pony Society UK (FPS). There will be 25 Edinburgh Prizes, one to be awarded each year from 2014 onward. The Fell Pony Society Council is thrilled to inform all ‘whips’ internationally of this opportunity, as North American drivers are eligible to compete for this prestigious honor.

All participating members must complete a form indicating their events over the course of the year, with relevant signatures confirming their achievements.

All ponies must be FPS registered Fell Ponies, and the owner or the driver must be a member of The Fell Pony Society, or a member of an FPS-recognized Overseas Branch (including Fell Pony Society of North America, Inc.).”

For more information, visit the Fell Pony Society (UK) website.

To date, Littletree Limited Edition (Littletree Bodini x Greenholme Veronica) is the only Fell Pony in North America to be selected for the Duke of Edinburgh Award, with owner and trainer Nichole Jansen of Waypoint Carriage Ponies.
