Kerbeck Fell Ponies


Kerbeck Fell Pony Stud is situated in the village of Anthorn, which is on the North Cumbrian Coast, in the Solway Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

The name "Kerbeck" comes from the “Ker” or “Kirk” beck, which flows from the fells, through the village of Beckermet to Braystones, then out into the Irish Sea.  Braystones was the original home of the Stud, which was founded in 1977, with the purchase of the foundation mare, Townend Princess II.

Originally owned by Christine Robinson and her parents Henderson and Mary Dodd, it is now run solely by Christine since the death of her parents.

Kerbeck ponies are well known for their versatility, taking part in all manner of different events and disciplines and can be found in homes all over the UK. Ponies from the Stud have also been exported to the USA, Germany, Holland, Denmark and Switzerland.

There are always a few youngsters about the stud as well as the older ponies.

The aim of the stud is to breed Fell Ponies which are not only true to breed type, active, hardy and with good temperaments, but which are versatile and will prove to be a credit both to us and their future owners.

This strategy would appear to be working as our ponies are not only well known in the show ring, but have been competed successfully in a wide variety of events. They are regularly on the prize winners lists at Pony Club and Riding club shows, with some having been on Pony Club teams. Several have been competed in both Private and Combined driving events around the country, whilst others include Riding for the Disabled and Pack Pony work in their list of accomplishments!

We aim to breed 1 or 2 foals a year. These foals may be retained by the Stud, or may be available for sale at weaning.
