The Official sales for Welsh Ponies and Cobs 2020

Following the announcement by Brightwells and their decision to terminate their service as ‘Official Auctioneers’ to the WPCS, the Council of Trustees would like to confirm the WPCS position regarding Official Sales.

The ‘Official’ title for sales is owned by, endorsed and authorised by the WPCS on behalf of the membership. Since the Brightwells announcement the Council are considering all options to ensure the continuation of these integral elements of the Society’s activities and calendar. Whilst the recent news has been very disappointing it also offers the Society the opportunity to look at a variety of ideas and proposals for the next Sales.

The Society will release information as to a way forward as soon as possible. In the meantime, we thank members and other interested parties who have expressed their feelings, offered ideas and suggestions or professional interest in any future prospective development in this field.
