New Application process for WPCS Funding

The Society has recently adopted a new formal application process for groups and organisations that wish to benefit from financial support supplied by the Society

The Welsh Pony and Cob Society welcomes applications for funding from organisations and groups whose aims align with the Society’s aims and objectives.  Each application will be assessed on its own merits but inevitably there are limits to the amount of funds that are available. 

The Society’s primary objectives are:

  • To encourage the breeding and improvement of horses and ponies more especially those of the Welsh Breeds.
  • To advance the breeding in all districts and countered in the various arts and sciences connected with the use and management of horses and ponies in general and of the Welsh mountain Pony, the Welsh Pony, the Welsh Pony (Cob Type) and the Welsh Cob (hereinafter referred to as “the Welsh Breeds”) and their Part-Breds.
  • To provide or assist in the provision for the public benefit, of facilities for recreation or other leisure time occupation, through the use of horses and ponies, but confined to facilities provided in the interests of social welfare within the meaning and so as to satisfy the requirements of the Recreational Charities Act 1958.
  • To prevent cruelty to and promote the welfare of horses and ponies.
