For Fell Pony owners and competitors seeking additional program information and list of all requirements, please click here. Note that participants must be members of FPSNA, and there is also an annual pony participation/enrollment fee of $25/pony to help us cover program costs. Ponies must be “declared” with USDF to be competing with FPSNA no later than August 1 of the current competition year. For renewing FPSNA members with previously declared ponies, membership and participation/enrollment fees must be paid by March 1 of the current competition year in order to be eligible. For new FPSNA members, or for renewing FPSNA members with previously undeclared ponies, the deadline for enrollment is August 1. (August 1 is also USDF’s deadline for declaring a pony.)

The Edinburgh Prize for Driving
Instituted by His Royal Highness the Duke of Edinburgh
“To be awarded internationally to a single or multiple turnout
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 (similar to the Performance Awards form), 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.).”
