The Ridden Native Pony Championship
The Welsh Pony & Cob Society of Australia Inc. (WP&CSA) has introduced the Ridden Native Pony Championship to encourage ridden classes for the British Mountain and Moorland breeds, Fjord, Haflinger and Australian ponies.
The WP&CSA will support classes at Agricultural and WP&CSA approved events which will be qualifiers for the Ridden Native Pony State Championships that will be held at the State All Welsh Shows. The highest placed pony of each breed at the State Championship will qualify for the National Championship.
Why should you participate in the Championship?
How the classes operate:
The winner is the exhibit which achieves the highest total marks awarded by the ridden & conformation judges ,which are added together by the steward. Based on the experience in the United Kingdom, the classes should take about the same time as other ridden classes as the two judges are assessing at the same time.
What you will need :
The British Mountain & Moorland Breeds, Australian Ponies, Haflinger & Fjord Ponies.
Welsh Mountain Pony, Welsh Pony, Welsh Pony of Cob Type, Welsh Cob.
