WPCS Judges Conference 2015

Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, provided a popular venue for the 2015 Conference with 300 delegates attending including representation from overseas.

Opened by WPCS President Mr Dai Harris, the conference included presentations but also factored in was opportunity for discussion satisfying the over-riding theme of the day, “sharing ideas with fellow judges and members and promoting uniformity within judging”.

A message from Mr Dai Harris, WPCS President

£ for a lb

Following the first weigh-in at Fayre Oaks for the “£ for a lb” challenge, the Young People’s Group and myself look forward to the next weigh-in, which will take place at the Cob Sales over the weekend of October 16th-18th, 2015 at the Royal Welsh Showground.

I would personally like to thank Society Members and all in the audience for taking the competition in good spirit and making it enjoyable for the competitors.

High Flyer Sale

My grateful thanks go to Mr Mike Daley for donating a hand-crafted stick for auction at the above sale which will go towards my chosen charity, the British Heart Foundation.  Mr Terry Court kindly purchased the stick for £150, which is greatly appreciated.

Once again, many thanks for your support

Dai Harris

Dai Harris elected as President-Elect of the WPCS

The 2014 AGM of the Welsh Pony and Cob Society was held at the Mercure Holland House Hotel, Cardiff on 5th April. At the AGM the President’s badge was passed to Mrs Mary Redvers (Bwlch) and Mr David Harris (Pennal) was elected as President-Elect. It is interesting that Mrs Redvers’ grandfather Mr Gwynne-Holford and Mr Harris’ great-uncles the Rowlands Brothers were founder members of the WPCS in 1901.
