HOOFPRINTS IN EDEN

Date: Saturday 2nd December 2006

TEBAY and Orton History Society held its meeting at Tebay. The guest speaker was Mrs. Sue Millard, from Greenholme, the author of Hoofprints in Eden. She talked about horses and ponies from Roman times until the present day and about the Fell Ponies which roam Cumbria’s fells.

The Fell Pony was first registered in 1898 by the Riding and Polo Society. The Fell Pony Society was formed in 1918. She explained how she received information from local owners and breeders, to add to her own knowledge, before writing her book.
