Thank you for your time & effort in bringing your ponies to the Equine Fair.

Saturday & Sunday, 7th & 8th December  CHRISTMAS EQUINE FAIR, Westpoint, Devon County  Showground.   We had a stand there (No 1) as in previous years and we have once again been lucky  enough to receive funding from the WPCS towards the cost.  Many thanks to those members who manned the stand on Saturday Belinda Watson, Anna Richards,  Bex Vinnicombe, Sue & Janet Hardy.  Sunday Anne Brice, Judy Pring, Vicky Stephens and Anne & Stewart Franklin.

Also many thanks to Bex as she not only provided the column of horse treats that people had to guess how many there were but also arranged the prize – a hamper full of all sorts of goodies, for example 2 tickets to the RHS Malvern 2020 Flower Show, whip covers, key rings, tie, horse rugs, chaps plus many other items.    The cloth and bunting with our SWA logo printed on them.  Bex must have spent hours doing all this and asking firms and business to donate items for the hamper.  The number of treats in the column is in a sealed envelope which will be opened at our Christmas lunch on 14 December and then the sheets of entries will be checked and the winner announced.  Good luck everyone!

Vicky Stephens says “Really enjoyed my stint on the SWA of WPCS stand on Sunday at the Equine Fair, great way of meeting new people. Would like to say a massive thank you to everyone who donated prizes for our hamper 👏 . Result next Saturday at Christmas lunch!
One thing which really struck me was how many Welsh ponies are out there doing all sorts of jobs and people don’t know we run performance competitions they could be entering! We are not just about breeding!! They all need a job and what ever it is we love to hear about them!! Please spread the word and check out our website plus the main society website too.😁
