Scottish Native Pony Roadshow

Scottish Native Pony Roadshow Sunday 18thSeptember


After much thought the organising committee have decided that the Scottish Native Pony Roadshow due to take place at Champfleurie Equestrian on Sunday September 18th will go ahead as planned. The loss of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II after a reign lasting 70 years during which she selflessly devoted herself to her people wherever in the world they might be is a time of great sadness and reflection. However we felt that she would have wanted us to go ahead and promote the native pony breeds she thought so much about.


In honour of our late Queen we ask that you wear a black armband or tie if you are attending the event. We will be observing one minute’s silence at the start of the day, and a senior member of the Highland Pony Society will say a few words.


We would also like to offer our sincere condolences to His Majesty King Charles III and the Royal Family at this very sad time.


Her Majesty The Queen

The Dales Pony Society extends its deepest sympathy to the Royal Family following the loss of Her Majesty the Queen.

The Society is very grateful to Mark and Helen Snowden of the Essicroft Stud who were able to lay flowers and a card on behalf of the Dales Pony Society and it’s members at Balmoral this week 



NPS Great Inhand Show

? From the National Pony Society ?

Entries close on Wednesday 14th September for the Great British In Hand Show.

Each breed has a Breed Supreme Championship in the evening performance, from which the 16 Breed Supremes go forward to contest the Overall Supreme of Show, with prize money right the way down the line.

The champion and reserve pony from the breed classes and the champion and reserve from the breed semi finals, will contest the Breed Supreme.

There are also the Catalyst Capital Owner Breeder and the Home Produced Championships taking part in the evening performance.

Some examples of the different classes you can enter: If you have a 5yo home produced Connemara stallion you could enter Class 6, Connemara Stallion class and also Class 106 Home Produced M*M Large Breeds 4yo & Over.

If you have a British Riding Pony yearling that you show in SHP classes, who has won an NPS silver medal during the year then you could enter both Class 65 (SHP Yearling) and Class 88 (SHP Youngstock semi final) – giving you two chances of getting into the Breed Supreme.
