President's Report - October 2021

As from 1st January 2022 all foals registered with the SPS-BS must have a DNA profile of the sire completed.   Stallions that have already been through either the Voluntary Vetting Examination or previous SPS-BS Stallion Scheme will already have this in place. As a Charity we are obliged to ensure our registered ponies are a pure breed.  The Society recommends that members put their colts through the Voluntary Vetting Examination (VVE). This is done to ensure stallions are free from any hereditary conditions.  Should you buy a mare in foal please check that the sire has a DNA profile.
The 2022 Breed Show will take place at the Royal Welsh Showground, Builth Wells on the August Bank Holiday weekend.


The 2023 Breed Show will be held at the Black Isle Showground, Muir of Ord in the north of Scotland.
