The SPS-BS is saddened to learn of the death of Mr John Church.  Mr Church was the Society President from 1987 to 1989 and was an Honorary member of the Society.

The funeral will take place on Monday 17th December at 10.30am at Isfield Church.


It is with regret that Council has unanimously decided that Reading Shetland Sale will no longer be held under the Auspices of the SPSBS.

This follows an unprecedented number of complaints via letters, emails and telephone calls from our members after the conditions at the recent October sale.

Members may have noticed that some of the media have picked up on Council's decision to withdraw the Auspices of the SPSBS from the annual sale at Reading.

Comments in those papers have not been instigated by Council.



1. Please remember that it is a legal requirement that any change of ownership or address must be notified to the Society within 30 days.

2. A reminder to judges of affiliation rule 5.

   5.   Where there are more than two ridden classes or the best ridden pony is to go

         forward to an overall Mountain and Moorland Championship, or where the

         class is a qualifier for Area or National M & M Championships, the Judge

         invited must have an “R” beside their name on the Society Judges List.
