Open Days at Bronaeron

Open Days at Bronaeron

The Welsh Pony and Cob Society (WPCS) is again inviting people to visit its offices in Bronaeron, Felinfach during an Open Day to be held on Saturday 30th November 2013 from 10am to 4pm.

Visitors to the offices will be able to see how horse passports are produced, meet with staff and trustees, and view the museum and its unique exhibits. With over 100 years of history, the Society has a wealth of archive material and previously unseen video footage that will be shown during the open day. 

At 2pm, last year’s President, Mr Eric Davies of the Maesmynach stud, will be presenting a cheque to Air Ambulance for the funds he raised during his Presidential year. This will be followed by free refreshments for visitors.

The Welsh Pony and Cob Society is the largest of Britain’s native breed Societies, with a membership in excess of 7,500.  The Society registers four “Sections”, or types, of Welsh breeds (Welsh Mountain Pony (Section A), Welsh Pony (Section B), Welsh Pony of Cob Type (Section C) and Welsh Cob (Section D)) along with Welsh Part-bred animals who must have a proven minimum of 12.5% Welsh blood in their pedigree. 

“We hope to welcome as many people as possible to Bronaeron during the Open Day,” said Edwin Prosser, this year’s President.  “The new offices are a fantastic resource for the Society and a visit to the museum is a must for any Welsh Pony and Cob enthusiast.  The Welsh breeds are famous the world over and excel in all equine disciplines, therefore it is great to have a flagship, such as our new offices, that do the breeds justice and demonstrate the Society’s lead position in the equine arena”.
