And still the news comes in from a sizzling Royal Welsh Show.

Gillian Lloyd’s homebred yearling Cotmullion Paprika Prince, won a huge class..... Gillian sold him in the Autumn and he has been winning all over the place this season.... SO proud.... and beautifully shown by his owner Linzi Hamilton.......Gillian was delighted with this result, as was his new owner and exhibitor, particularly  because of the numbers and quality of ponies forward.

 


More from Royal Welsh Show

As previously reported it was an extremely hot day but it did not deter the shetland exhibitors with massive entries, 57 entries in the standard shetland section and 87 entries in the miniature shetland section making an incredible total of 144 entries of which most were forward. It was certainly a super show of shetland ponies. 
Limited results due gleaned to hot weather

Phoebe Preston showing the Gelding, Kinkell Ewen at the Yorkshire Show.

 

Ewen is now seven, he was purchased as a foal and the show was both Ewen and Phoebe's first time showing at a county show.
He won the gelding 4 years and over class then was awarded the best gelding.A.P.
She did an amazing job completing the lap of honour with all the adults following and didn't hold anyone up!! D.J.

Hi Gerry I don't know if you consider it worth putting on website but….
We went to the royal welsh show for the first time yesterday and were amazed by the sight! it was packed with people from all walks of life, so many stands and interesting things to see and set in such stunning scenery!
the coloured cob classes (in the ring next to the shetlands) were stunning to see and filled the ring on one occasion, as there were so many entries!
So many Shetland ponies were forward and all were spectacularly turned out even in the unforgiving heat!
classes were very well attended with the largest class having up to 27 entries in the mini Shetland colt filly gelding  2/3 year old.
we took our 3 year old colt - Brackenfields Firefly Cast a Spell and were amazed and very proud of him when he was given 5th place in the above mentioned huge class!
yes I know it wasn't first but we couldn't believe the judge would pick ours out of the many stunning ponies that were available!
I think all those owners/breeders and handlers, including Charlotte Corbishley who owns and handled Fly in the ring, deserved a medal just for standing in the heat for so long! 
I was immensely impressed by the judge and stewards who did a wonderful  professional job in such searing heat.
people around the ring were so friendly and helpful and it was nice to see new and old faces and catch up with other like minded pony people!
the only thing I can think of that would have made the day better was a set of sprinklers or misters to refresh both horses and handlers!
in all a wonderful day, many thanks to all who worked so hard to make the day a success.
you betcha I'll put it on! That's the second time today I've read a report where author has not been first or champion. Not that there is anything wrong wih coming first! So delighted to publish your report of you enjoying your day out with your ponies, the show, and taking your ponies home proud knowing another day, another dollar'. Bit more of this and perhaps not all is lost. Well done. Ed. piccys below.

It seems I may have inadvertently offended. It seems my article below regarding forms for registering foals has given the impression that I blame Society admin. for my inability to grasp the forewarnings of the new arrangements. I now understand that it was in the magazine 2015 and President's report 2016' which I may not have read. Mea culpa. I would have thought my self deprecating remark 'Somewhere in the depths of my brain I remember reading/seeing something about that, but it didn’t sink in, would make it clear that I was to blame, not administration. Anyone offended, please accept my apologies.

For those constant malcontents.....who are forever complaining about 'the Society'. I presume they really mean the Council who act on our behalf as the members. Frankly I can't think why anyone would stand and at their own expense, probably 3000 over 3 years if you live in the South. Constrained by Company  law, EU laws and charities law let alone our constitution. There are few thanks, mainly brick bats. Those who stand do so as a 'give back' thanking the breed that gives them so much pleasure. Its a fact that to operate, we have to have a committee/council, call it what you will. Perhaps those who complain so vehemently and venomously on social media, should put themselves forward, they'd be most welcome to  have their eyes opened as to the realities of a running a breed society today.

Sun 17th July
I booked my vet to visit Monday 11th July  to micro chip and passport this years foals. On Friday the 8th I went to the breed society website to download the forms. It was then that I discovered this was no longer possible and forms could only be obtained by post from the Society office. Somewhere in the depths of my brain I remember reading/seeing something about that, but it didn’t sink in, I probably  put it down it a temporary glitch, like the Society’s ‘crashed’ email a few weeks ago, which again I was unaware of until I tried to email. Neither of the above events were life threatening, I simply cancelled   the vet, then re booked for a week later, tomorrow, once the forms arrived.

Now I tell you this in the form of an open letter, because in my opinion it isn’t sufficient for the Society to say  ‘oh well, it’s been on the website’. No disrespect, but I suspect like everyone else, I use the Society web site for downloading forms, accessing ‘grass roots’ and very little else.  We are all too busy on social media, I’ve got pics to ‘like’ birthday wishes to send, comments to make let alone keeping Shetland-pony.com up to date. One thing I do know, my legendary inability to put a name to a face is cured when it comes to Society Presidents, as a result of my occasional visits to the site! I think on matters like the changes above we should email everyone possibly more than once! It costs nothing. Similarly the new passport style, NOT our choice, but EU Legislation. That would stop a lot of ill informed grumbling.

As a Society and passport issuing authority, WE have to pick up the bill for new style passports, writing off the cost of stocks of the old ones. No doubt a new passport assembling machine will be bought, again at our expense, let alone the cost of posting application forms. This nonsense will prevail for years, even though we’ve voted OUT OF THE EU and no doubt thereafter if we wish to trade with them. Ed.

2016 Performance Show Malvern............
top left,

Could not have been more proud of Dannielle Strattenen and Sedgehill Nuala this weekend - collected her 7, yes 7!!! trophies from the 2015 performance awards and had a fabulous show doing some very different classes for us!! 1st NPS Novice workers, 2nd and highest Junior rider in both NPS Dressage Prelim and Novice, then a 1st in their very first Horse Agility!!! Had a great time with some wonderful people - thank you Shetland Performance Show for yet another lovely memory to cherish.JR

top right, Great achievement for the Miniatures on the final day. Jane & Glen Smith’s Gott Mabs taken the reserve Miniature Championship while Clifford & Jacqueline Percy’s Snelsmore Lalique was chosen by the Miniature ring judge, Mrs J Patterson as her Champion. Snelsmore Lalique went on to impress…. she her best foot forward to catch the eye of NPS judge Mr R Sutcliffe to be awarded the NPS/Kilmannan Stud M & M in hand Silver Medal, with Gotts Mab Reserve. Fantastic result for both these Miniature mares.
Snelsmore Spectre won the yearling class Miniature Junior Champion & Reserve Reserve Miniature Champion. Snelsmore Ragdoll won the two & three-year-old class and Reserve Junior Champion. Merryless Nuggett won the stallion class. JP.


Bottom left,
Duncan (pony) & Fay?? were 2nd in the NPS novice lead rein!! Rode with no neck strap, perfect up down. What a result, followed by 4th in the fancy dress
(bumble bee & beekeeper). Duncan was a true gent apart from a little nibble on the lead rein but he is very much forgiven.
Bottom right. Honour and Briar Pegasus surpassed themselves winning two very strong lead rein classes in challenging weather conditions. f-book

Jack Dale and Cr. Fandabbydosey, off to the National PC DRESSAGE finals in August. one of only 3 boys to go and the only one riding a Shetland pony. Jack will be part of the team representing Eridge PC And wont be doing the Shetland pony breed any harm  either!  2nd in his section of 20 competitors, everyone was gobsmacked at the way she went. (We weren't. we know her!) Pic of Jack on the rostrum, and from the other direction, you know who, photo bombing in her pink jodphur boots.


I’m all for the county shows. I believe they show our breed off to the general public, a much wider audience. We don’t need to tell each other about the versatility of the Shetland pony, or its biddable temperament, we experience it all the time, every day.

I congratulate anyone who enjoys success at the major shows, but those who enter them are not an exclusive club, as an exhibitor you are as likely to be competing against the same people at an area group show, and to be honest, with the fall off of entries at the ‘major’ shows, the ever rising entry fees, and fewer classes on offer, you are likely to be competing against a larger number of exhibitors at an area ‘group’ show. Further, too often ‘major’ shows are totally unable or have no desire to listen to the wishes of exhibitors and bash on regardless year on year irrespective.

By all means carry on showing at major shows for the very reason set out in second sentence, but I would encourage you to enter your area group shows. Invariably they are run by people who know about Shetland pony showing, and the requirements of their exhibitors. Two such group shows I have personal experience of are the Southern Group Show run by Cliff and Jackie Percy, and the Downs Show, run by Roger and Jill Jones.

NOTHING is too much trouble, and they constantly ask for input as to how the show is structured and what classes could be included or improved in any way. Both Cliff and Roger have a total grip of where the show ‘is at’ on show day, and tweaking the running order if necessary, with all exhibitors involved consulted and informed. Jackie Percy for the Southern, and Jill Jones for the Downs, do terrific job of PR and do all they can to make sure everyone has an enjoyable day.

The Downs Summer Show will take place on 14th August and there will be an Autumn show for the Southern group, date to be advised. Support them please.


Native Pony Association of Cornwall

A last minute decision to take gelding Tawna Boy George, along with his friend Tawna Nutkin to the NPAC Breed Show proved a great success for their owner, Pam Tabb. Both ponies won their classes, with Boy George (pictured) taking the Miniature Shetland Championship.
Reserve went to Sue Buckley with her home-bred roan mare – Tresuvi Dizzy Delight.

The standard champion was won by William Merrell with his young home-bred colt, Tegen Captain Ross

Message from Jackie Percy, Sec. Southern Shetland Group
We hope all our members have received their Summer Show schedules. For non-members it is available to download from our website, the New Forest Equine Directory (http://www.nfed.co.uk/) and the Equine Advertiser (http://www.equineadvertiser.co.uk).
You may notice we've changed the summer schedule very slightly this year. Due to the sad cancellation of the pony agility and lack of support in our unaffiliated section, we decided not to have our third ring and concentrate on the two affiliated rings instead. We were also asked to put on a Midi class by the members but due to a lack of entries we decided not to continue with it. In its place, we now have an owner bred class in ring one. We have also moved the young handlers into ring two, sorting out the problem of it clashing. Naturally we will allow time to tack up for those children competing in the lead rein class that follows.
As you all know this is still early days for Cliff and I so we are happy to take on board people’s comments. This is very much a work in progress for us. When we took over the group there was very little interest in ridden classes however it is now growing in popularity. To help this continue, we have decided to change the age of our First Ridden class to 12 years and under rather than the 11 years shown on the schedule. We have also had an enquiry for a field kept pony class and I will give this some thought but feel it will be a hard class to control; most ponies spend some time in the field so where do you draw the line.
As always, we’re really happy to take on board your suggestions and feedback. Please don’t hesitate to contact me or come and have a chat with Cliff, Carol or myself at the show. Hope you all have a lovely day.

In at the deep end Twelve year old Toby Bull loves grooming and handling horses and ponies and has recently been giving us a  helping hand on weekends at the Tawna stud. He helped prepare two ponies for yesterday’s Cornwall Open Show – our first outing for the year – and arrived bright and early to go to his first ever horse show where he was going to watch and learn how the show classes are conducted. Toby is looking forward to having a go in some Young Handlers classes later in the season, so he did a dress rehearsal of his show togs....just as well, as with two first prize winners to go into the championship Toby was unexpectedly pressed into action, taking yearling filly Tawna Freckles into the ring. What a thrill for him when judge Mrs Sandra Seward pulled Freckles forward as Miniature Champion! Reserve Miniature Champion went to our mare, Tawna Tia Maria. Best gelding went to Wotknotts Angus owned by Fiona and Ellen Lawrence.

Hundreds of you have read the editorial on hyperlipaemia. Perhaps not the problem it once was as I've been contacted by only 3 of you whose 'cases' were much like below.
We lost a mare to this last March. She was pregnant and healthy, not overweight. The foal died inside her. Afterwards, although on her feet, she was down in the dumps and wouldn’t eat. The vet said that she had gone into shock and unless she ate the fat would gravitate towards her liver and kidneys which would eventually cause organ failure – he advised us to try feeding her with Ready Brek through a syringe but she just didn’t want it. A blood test confirmed hyperlipaemia and she was put down.  EY

About 25 years ago, a known condition, hyperlipaemia seemed to strike Shetland ponies, mostly minis, with a vengeance. Theories abounded from the veterinary profession as to its causes, amongst them initially, was the theory that in mid - late term pregnancy, a mare switched her metabolism to the growing foal, in effect starving herself. This had some credence as the oft aborted foal, which sometimes saved the mare's life, were invariably  'plump' and rather 'well done' for that stage in pregnancy. Other theories included, overfat mares, worm damage, stress, insufficient food for mare and so on. A simple blood test would diagnose the condition with fat separating from the blood often more than 50% of the sample stood in a test tube inside a few minutes. Speaking personally, and I'm sure for many of you, lack of worming would not be a cause, nor lack of feed, although some mares may have been a tad overweight, nothing excessive. Every winter we heard terrible news of this dread killer condition, yet I cannot remember the last case I heard of. Have you? CONTACT us

Congratulation  to the organisers of the Area 12 NPS show held at Kings Equestrian Centre Bromyard.
Competing here for the first time, it was a friendly well organised show, even changing the rings to keep things running smoothly. Snelsmore ponies had a great day winning all three Miniature classes and Championships. 
Snelsmore Lalique  went on to represent the breed in the Mountain and Moorland Championship later in the day and was Reserve Champion.   


Everybody keeps telling me how well we (cranford) do/have done with our ridden ponies. It’s true, we have enjoyed success, largely to do with good suitable ponies, and some good jockeys and keen parents. In the main our publicity comes not from Facebook as you might think, in fact I’m disinclined to use social media for self promotion of results, but the results page on Shetland-pony.com. we have got involved in riding the ponies we have bred for our own entertainment and enjoyment, but have always been aware of the fact that all of us competing in affiliated events are hopefully doing breed perception good and that applies to in hand as well.

It’s true the breed society’s scheme compiles results annually, but there is no running results scheme, understandably, it is very time consuming and time is money, hence there is a nominal fee for the Shetland-pony.com scheme and with the help of sponsors, you could well collect a quality memento at the end of the season.

COME ON, LEAD REIN, FIRST RIDDEN AND OPEN AND WHP EXHIBITORS. Enter before 7th May and I will hold the price. It’s not about us, it’s about all of you too.  www.shetland-pony.com/2016 SAME OFFER (closing date)TO IN HAND APPLIES AS WELL.


SHETLAND PONY STUD-BOOK SOCIETY

DRIVEN PERFORMANCE AWARDS SCHEME

Following the amazingly successful training day held last January with Elinor Bosanquet, the SPS-BS Driven Performance Awards Scheme held the 2016 training event at Bennington Carriages with Sue Mart..

 Nine turnouts had registered to attend the day and all had sent back forms with their aspirations.  Everyone wished to improve in different ways and some of the subjects covered included: fitting show harness and putting to a show gig for the first time for that particular pony, improving shows, dressage, advice about minor issues, harness fitting, advice to a pony who was about to start a career with RDA.  Possibly the highlight of the day was seeing Andrew and Hannah Britland putting their lovely home-bred pony put to and driving round the school  - everyone with smiles on their faces.

It was lovely to see several home-bred ponies there.  As I say so many times, a happy Shetland is a working Shetland and it is days like these who give these ponies the opportunity to go on into a happy and  safe driving career.

A massive “thank you” to Sue and her team at Bennington.  She was truly the star of the day which started well before 9.00 a.m. And was not to finish before 4.00 p.m.  The feedback has been excellent and everyone left feeling they had gained both knowledge and encouragement.

The Scheme welcomes all registered Shetland ponies – there is a driving weekend planned for 22/24 July as well as the Annual Luncheon in January.  A further training day will be held in 2017. Any information contact Willowe Keeley 01902 372238
