If Agricultural show or Gymkhana results are submitted, a detailed account must be submitted. E.g. name of show or Gymkhana, Date, Number of exhibitors in class, name of judge.
The Achiever Award is a prestigious award in recognition of outstanding performance by a Welsh pony, considering the versatility demonstrated in their general promotion of the Welsh breed in OPEN COMPANY (led, saddle, harness etc).
NOTE: Although general agricultural show results will be considered, greater preference would be given to an exhibit that, for example:_ won at Barastoc, represented their state at an Australia wide competition of significant importance, excelled at and gained recognition for its contribution to the RDA etc.
The applicants are notified in writing of the Committee of Management (COM) decision as soon as possible after the February COM meeting.
