Breeders Committee 2019
The IPS Breeders Committee are delighted with the response to our Foal and Yearling Show on 28th October. We already have both major championships sponsored, also several classes. If we can obtain sponsorship from those interested in Native breeds there will also be Championships for Connemara, Kerry Bog and Welsh foals and yearlings. There are some trophies already in existence such as the Paulank Cup which will be presented to the best Welsh Foal. Any offers of sponsorship will be gratefully received. Our judge, Mr Wyn Morris, comes from Wales but is not only involved in Welsh ponies as he produces Show Ponies and Show Hunter Ponies and Show Horses. He also judges Coloured horses and ponies.
With the delay in electing the Committee for 2019 there has not been much time to discuss further plans for the Breeding enthusiasts, but we hope to get a programme for the production and marketing of youngstock in place before 2020.
The Committee consists of:
& Annette Kinsella
|Celine Essame||Newstown||(on completion of IPS Membership)|
|Gerry Fennell||Parcglas||(on completion of IPS Membership)|
Many ponies bearing the above prefixes have had much success in the show ring and also in other disciplines such as Eventing and Dressage. Araglen, Barossa, Brandon, Hollycreek and Parcglas ponies in particular are all noted for their success in the SJI; the 6yr old Brandon Reepicheep (Eskdale Splendid Venture x Brandon Marietta) recently winning the Gateau Series 128cms Pony Final with Lauren Adams who purchased him with her mother’s approval as a 4yr old with her First Holy Communion money!
Newstown ponies were well known for their success in many fields, so we are delighted to welcome Celine back to the pony breeding circle.
We will shortly have a news update on breeding plans for 2020, with details of stud news and a list of pony stallions at stud.
