Welcome to the website of the Irish Pony Society, the governing body for all official showing activities for ponies in Ireland.
From Lead Rein and First Ridden, to Show Ponies, Show Hunters, Working Hunters, and In-Hand classes for breeding and youngstock, the Irish Pony Society oversees some 100 shows and hundreds of classes across Ireland throughout the year.
The two main shows are held in the spring and summer each year, namely the Autumn Festival and the Championship Show.
The IPS also promotes growth in this sphere through meetings, conferences, seminars, demonstrations and a pony register.
With its 50th anniversary in 2014, the Irish Pony Society continues to grow. The current membership comprises of adult and junior members and there are over 6,000 ponies on the I.P.S. Register.
The Society is officially recognised by Horse Sport Ireland (HSI) and it uses a joint measuring scheme approved by the HSI and run in conjunction with Show Jumping Ireland.
