Medal Review 2013

The Welsh Pony and Cob Society Judging and Showing Committee has completed a review of the medals and rosettes awarded across the UK.  In undertaking the review, the committee has taken into account statistics provided by shows of animals entered and brought forward over a period of four years, with the last review that was due 2 years ago having been postponed due to the economic climate and impact on shows.

The Society can now confirm the names of affiliated Shows as from 2014, as listed below. Some of the Shows have had their status changed, with some shows having been issued with a warning to improve their numbers or face demotion. Shows that have been issued with warnings will be reviewed again after a period of twelve months.
