Patronage Update

The Dales Pony Society is delighted to announce that His Majesty The King will continue as Patron of the Society, following the review of his royal patronages after his ascension to the throne. The Society has been honoured with Royal Patronage since 2014 when His Majesty the King, then His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales, became our Patron. 

Our Society aims to promote and encourage breeding of high-class Dales Ponies, maintaining the wonderful native pony breed. With Dales Ponies still classed as a priority breed for conservation purposes, the Society greatly values the support of His Majesty in helping to preserve the endangered breed for future generations. 

Janet James, Chairman of the Society said, “We are honoured that His Majesty the King will continue as Patron of the Dales Pony Society, our Council, Honorary Secretary and Members value his passion and promotion of our rare breed.”

His Majesty met Dales Ponies and Society Members as part of the Society’s centenary year celebrations in 2016.
